XFX R9 290X Double Dissipation Testing:
Far Cry 3 is the latest iteration in the Far Cry series. Released in the US in early December 2012, it uses the Dunia 2 game engine and is published and developed by Ubisoft. This action-adventure, first-person shooter offers both single player and multi-player modes.

In Far Cry 3, XFX's R9 290X is most evenly matched with the PowerColor reference card in both resolutions. Compared to NVIDIA's offering, the XFX R9 290X is on par or better than the GTX 780 in both tests. Frame time variances stay under 10ms at 1920x180 and under 25ms at 5780x1080. While the game feels choppy when running, it is more so the right arm rhythmically swinging forward that presents the illusion.
