BioShock Infinite is yet another game where there's but a negligible difference between the Radeon R9 290 and the GeForce GTX 780 in terms of average frame rate. The AMD-based products have an advantage in bottom speed, though. This must be due to the specifics of the particular test scene.
Metro: Last Light
As usual, we’ll first run this game with the Advanced PhysX option turned on.
Nvidia's GeForce series is superior in this test in terms of both average and bottom speed. But the picture changes when we disable Advanced PhysX:
Now the Radeon R9 290 is as good as the GeForce GTX 780 and even beats the latter when antialiasing is turned off. The gap between the R9 290 and the flagship R9 290X is the same as in most of the previous tests.
GRID 2 doesn’t tell us which card is faster: the GeForce GTX 780 or the Radeon R9 290. The latter is just a little ahead of the GTX 780 (and of the Radeon R9 290X, too) in the overclocked mode.
Company of Heroes 2
Nvidia-based cards can’t match AMD-based solutions in this game.
The Radeon R9 290 enjoys its maximum advantage over the GeForce GTX 780 in this test session – up to 27%! Falling behind the R9 290X by 3-10% at its default frequencies, the R9 290 goes ahead in the overclocked mode. Thus, it can make a good buy for overclockers.
