PowerColor R9 290 Review
Published: 18th November 2013 | Source: PowerColor | Price: from £300 |
The last of our purely gaming benchmarks, Tomb Raider neatly encapsulates the 290's performance. If we look at the main three we're comparing to, the GTX770, R9 290X and the R9 290 itself we find average frame rates of 61/41, 79/52 and 73/29 respectively. Whilst at the normal resolution the 290 is fine and dandy, a slight bump in the resolution up to 2560 sees the result fall off a cliff, especially when compared to the 290X.
