PowerColor R9 290X OC Testing:

Unigine Heaven Benchmark 4.0 is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on the Unigine engine. This was the first DX 11 benchmark to allow testing of DX 11 features. What sets the Heaven Benchmark apart is the addition of hardware tessellation, available in three modes – Moderate, Normal and Extreme. Although tessellation requires a video card with DirectX 11 support and Windows Vista/7, the Heaven Benchmark also supports DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0. Visually, it features beautiful floating islands that contain a tiny village and extremely detailed architecture.

 

Settings

  • 8x AA
  • Ultra
  • Tesselation = Extreme
  • Measurement = FPS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Performance wise the R9 290X OC falls behind the GTX Titan and GTX 780 at 1920x1080. At 5760x1080 the script sees a change with the R9 290X OC outperforming them both.

 

FCAT Results:

What we see in the frame time and percentile charts is that the cards are stratified based on the level of performance generated. In this test there is nothing that stands out as abnormal.
