3DMark: The just-released version of Futuremark's popular 3DMark suite is designed to let a wider range of the user base make a comparative analysis of the gaming prowess of their systems from entry level PCs to notebooks and extreme gaming PCs.
- Default test settings
- Cloud Gate
- Fire Strike
- Fire Strike Extreme
The Cloud Gate test shows that the R9 290X OC delivers respectable performance to start with. Moving to the First Strike tests that prove to be much more demanding on the GPU, we see that PowerColor's R9 290X OC changes the performance landscape for this test. The shorter duration of the tests maximizes the performance potential.
