AMD Radeon R9 290X BioShock 4K Benchmark vs GTX 780

by Craig Humphreys | Thu 17 October 2013, 20:00 | Discuss

A few hours ago AMD notified the press that today they would allow publishing of select information on R9 290X performance. That performance was to be a single benchmark, Bioshock Infinite, at 4K resolution (3840x2160) and against the GTX 780.

So... here are AMDs results which they are allowing us to publish. Following them are our own 290X results for Bioshock at 4K which we can use as a comparison to see how close they are. We will also throw in a few screenshots too... but that is your lot for today! NDA approaches but isn't quite here yet...

really need to crank that FOV up.... 90 would be suitable/acceptable..... 100 would be ideal.... 110 would be fantastic

Give me the REAL benchmarks---not this optimized for Radeon game.
And compare TITAN not GTX 780......how about that?!!

@Gri3v: R9 290X will be sold at around 600$, which is the pricerange of the GTX 780.

It's completely normal to compare with devices from the same range.

About the optimizations, it's a marketing argument like any other. Everyone does it.

That said, imho, 4k ain't ready yet. IGZO screens are far from mainstream, and I am not convinced IGZO beats PLS on all fields.

having played on a sony 4k display... I can say for certain... 4k is definitely ready for prime time.. it's just not cheap having the tech to drive them properly.

We need a minimum of 60% more GPU power to do 4k justice for a single gpu solution.

The AMD card is 17% faster than the nVidia card. The AMD bar graph is twice as long as the nVidia bar graph. Why falsify the chart if they have the superior product?
