More AMD Radeon R9 290X performance charts emerge

Some new performance charts have been posted on Chinese forums. I couldn’t trace the original source all of them but I think it’s still worth taking a look.

PCEVA leaks

Performance rating chart, which would include a cumulative score based on two resolutions: 1080p and 1440p, seems to confirm that GeForce GTX TITAN is actually slower than R9 290X, but only by 3,5% . Unfortunately there is no description what do these chart actually represent, so we don’t know, for instance, what games were selected for this comparison.

AMD R9 290X Performance

There’s also a chart showing the performance in overclocked environment. The R9 290X can supposedly be easily overclocked to 1100/1275 MHz which would easily outperform GTX TITAN running at 1097/1625 MHz. The difference is just 6%, but it enough to say that TITAN may need a price reduction, very soon.

PCOnline leaks

According to data from PCOnline the R9 290X will be just slightly slower than GTX TITAN in synthetic benchmarks. The difference is very small in both 3DMark 11 and 3DMark Fire Strike. In 3DMark11 the R9 290X got a score of GTX 780, which may be little surprising, but right after we move to Fire Strike we notice 8% gap in favor of AMD product. Long story short this could mean that R9 290X has a performance between GTX 780 and GTX TITAN, with a good chance of beating both with better drivers.

Now let’s see how R9 290X works in Fire Strike. First chart is from PCOnline showing a FireStrike Performance Preset score of 4605 points. The second screenshot shows Extreme Fire Strike profile with a score of 9204. Both scores are within GTX TITAN scores, so the final decision whether it is actually faster or slower than NVIDIA’s card will depend on the reviewing machines configurations, and of course the drivers.

Guys from PCOnline promised to deliver more benchmarks soon, only this time it will be from the games.

Baidu leaks

Few minutes ago a new leak has been found. Someone made an unboxing of the XFX R9 290X Battlefield 4 Edition. Of course we also have some new benchmark results as well.

Just so you know, the GPU-Z readings are wrong, check comments for a real GPU-Z screengrab.
