PowerColor R9 290X PCS+ 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.

Gameplay at 1920x1080 and 5760x1080 is smooth at over 100FPS at 1920x1080 and over 55FPS at 5760x1080. The only card faster in a surround setup is the GTX 780 Ti. All cards show some oscillation of the frame times, with the maximum value reach staying below 26ms. The R9 290X seems to be more prone than the NVIDIA cards to this variance.
