AMD R9 290 Review (1600P, 4K and CF)

Grid 2 is the sequel to the racing video game Race Driver: Grid.  It was developed and published by Codemasters. The game includes numerous real world locations such as Paris, numerous United States locations, and many more, and also includes motor vehicles spanning four decades. In addition, it includes a new handling system that developer Codemasters has dubbed ‘TrueFeel’, which aims to hit a sweet spot between realism and accessibility.

The AMD R9 290X and 290 claim top positions at Ultra HD 4k. All of the cards are playable at this settings, with even the overclocked GTX770 holding a 25+ frame per second minimum at all times.

    The price is great, but the cooler is certainly not……. waiting to see modified versions soon

    The prices are hard to ignore, and its good to see Nvidia dropping prices lately too, they had been overcharging for quite some time now

  • Topperfalkon

    I always wondered why they didn’t use a version of the HD7990 cooler. would have made more sense instead of something they probably used on a HD7850

    Please, get rid of Furmark. It’s meant to stress GPUs at the max temperature before they are permanentely damaged. Nvidia drivers detect when Furmark is running and throttle their cards, so these results are biased. Measure real world power comsumption and temperature from games that are driven by different types of workloads – Rome: Total War 2, L4D 2, Battlefield 4 and GTA.

  • Hi Bob, it has never damaged any GPU in the years we have used it. and we only use it to supplement the temperatures from testing games.
