Far Cry 3
We get a clearer indication of the hi resolution limitations of the 290 in Far Cry 3. At 1080 the GTX770 got 42 FPS, the 290X attained 53 FPS, but the 290 got nearly 58 frames per second. So far so good. Up the resolution though and the GTX770 topped out at 27, the 290X 38, and yet the 290 only got 27. So it was better at the 1080P res but lost a lot of performance when we upped the ante.
To look at it another way it was identical to the brilliant GTX780Ti at 1920, but 10 frames behind at 2560.
