Synthetic Benchmarks

To get started with my R9 290X Matrix Platinum testing I ran it through our standard synthetic benchmark suite. This includes multiple versions of the 3DMark Fire Strike benchmark that cover 1080p, 1440p, and 4k resolutions as well as the Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0. How did the R9 290X Matrix perform? Well in all three of the 3DMark tests it came above the GTX 780 Ti and below the GTX 980. From that we can see that the R9 290X has aged well, outperforming the GTX 780 Ti that came out to outperform it. There is still a considerable jump from this card to the reference GTX 980, but that is to be expected with that being a much newer card. In the Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 the reference GTX 780 Ti did perform a little better than the 290X Matrix

Today we take a look at the R9 290X. It may be a little older but I'm curious how it is holding up to the competition.
