XFX R9 290X Double Dissipation Testing:
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is a historical action-adventure open world video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was released for PC in November of 2013 and uses the AnvilNext game engine. Set in the Caribbean, it follows the adventures of Edward Kenway over land and sea.

With the settings used, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is a great looking game, but it takes some video card horsepower to run the numbers. At 1920x1080, we get an almost identical performance between the XFX and PowerColor R9 290X. At 5760x1080, with this card, the only way to get above 30FPS is to use less aggressive settings.
