Well 290x isnt released yet so we'll take all results with a grain of salt. Drivers also needs to be updated etc.
Travis Touchdown WILL be in SSB4. You heard it here first!

It's okay because AMD r9 300x Spartan will beat the Titan.
If you don't use Throwback Mode for a full week while logged in, you will lose access.

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

The one game using mantle.

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