Still remaining one of the most resource-consuming 3D games, Crysis 3 puts the AMD Radeon R0 295X2 at least 95% higher than the Radeon R9 290X. The new card is also 54.7% faster than the Radeon HD 7990. The latter is also outperformed by the Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 in the AA-less modes but goes 1 fps ahead with antialiasing turned on. The overclocked Zotac GeForce GTX Titan Black is once again slower than the regular Nvidia GeForce GTX 690.
Tomb Raider (2013)
Like in Crysis 3, the new AMD Radeon R9 295X2 performs brilliantly. Its bottom speed is higher than the average frame rate of the other products!
The AMD Radeon R9 290X is 95 to 108% slower than the new dual-processor flagship whereas the AMD Radeon HD 7990 is slower by 34 to 45%. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 is behind the AMD Radeon HD 7990 but ahead of the overclocked Zotac GeForce GTX Titan Black. The CrossFireX technology works smoothly in this game as is indicated by the high bottom speed.
Every graphics card has problems with bottom speed in this game’s built-in benchmark, especially the Nvidia-based products.
However, the game itself runs smoothly enough. Talking about average frame rates, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 is twice as fast as the Radeon R9 290X and up to 42% ahead of the Radeon HD 7990. Second place is shared by three products in this test, meaning the Radeon HD 7990, GeForce GTX 690 and overclocked Zotac GeForce GTX Titan Black. It’s the seventh time in a row that the Zotac can't beat the old GeForce GTX 690!
Metro: Last Light
When Advanced PhysX is turned on, the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 can’t win the test - for the first and only time in this test session.
At these settings, the AMD-based products have very low bottom speeds. But the picture gets back to normal as soon as we disable the additional physics effects:
The AMD Radeon R9 295X2 is again twice as fast as the Radeon R9 290X and 47% ahead of the Radeon HD 7990. We can see the overclocked Zotac GeForce GTX Titan Black beat the GeForce GTX 690 for the first time in this test session but it's clear that SLI technology is just not efficient in Metro: Last Light.
The AMD Radeon R9 295X2 sports astonishing performance in this racing simulator at the highest settings.
Its advantage over the Radeon R9 290X amounts to 108%. And it also beats the dual-processor Radeon HD 7990 by 40%.
