Moving into Heaven, you can see the numbers are really strong here. At 1680 x 1050, you can see that performance sits a little below the R9 290X 4GB CF setup, but a strong 10% ahead of the R9 290 4GB CF setup. At 1920 x 1200, though, you can see the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB manages to outperform all our other setups here with an extremely solid score.

PSO2 performance can be a little funny when CrossFire is thrown into the mix. Looking above, you can see that the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB performs pretty much in line with the reference R9 290X 4GB in Uber Mode. You can also see that this means it falls behind the NVIDIA offerings. While this isn't great, the near 17,000 score is well into playable territory.
