Well 290x isnt released yet so we'll take all results with a grain of salt. Drivers also needs to be updated etc.

It's okay because AMD r9 300x Spartan will beat the Titan.

The 290x in games using Mantle!


It'll be interesting to see if the GCN cards will have an edge over their Kepler equivalents once games start using DX11.1/11.2

If you want the best, you got to pay the price.

Being cheap, gets you second place

The one game using mantle.

Time other games use it, the 290X will be equal to a low end card.
