Coming out the gate with 3DMark 11, you can see that when it comes to the Performance Preset, the R9 290X has no problems outperforming our other single GPU offerings here.

 

When we move to the higher Extreme preset, though, you can see that the higher-end NVIDIA offerings have a good 10%+ gain on it. As for the difference between Quiet and Uber mode, you can see very little difference.
