Heaven performance continues the trend of some strong numbers against the other R9 offerings. You can see that the new R9 290 4GB really slot itself in well against the other ones.

 

Against the NVIDIA offerings, you can see we've got no problems against the likes of the GTX 770 2GB, but as we move higher, you can see the heavily overclocked GTX 780 Lightning and TITAN perform a decent chunk stronger at both resolutions.
