PowerColor R9 290X OC Testing:
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist is the sixth installment in this franchise. Released in mid August 2013 in the US, it is published and distributed by Ubisoft. This game is built around the Unreal 2.5 game engine and uses Havok Physics. A new feature in this third person perspective game is a new game mechanic called Killing in Motion.

In both resolutions the PowerColor R9 290X OC is second only to the GTX Titan. I see 10+ FPS gains over the GTX 780 in this game.
In the percentile charts, we see a fairly flat rise in the charts until the 90% point at 1920x1080 and 95% point at 5760x1080. Looking at the plot charts we can see a wildly varying frame time with the R9 290X OC in both resolutions. At 1920x1080 this variance is close to 10ms.
