The big test is how realistic this 4K display idea is. Naturally we aren't tripping over 4K displays in the office, so our comparison is how much extra performance a 295X2 has over a regular 290X, and whether the average frame rate in the end is something that you could live with.
In short, most of the titles aren't greatly playable, especially if you're a PC gamer used to the joys of 60FPS rather than the console 30FPS, but only Crysis 3 and Metro : Last Light end up being slide shows. Otherwise the 295X2 makes a good fist of providing a playable experience, although for a card costing north of a grand we'd expect it to.
