Pretty much bouncing off an FPS wall, you can see the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC, like the reference card and even the higher-end R9 290X 4GB in "Uber Mode," perform quite similarly to each other with little difference being seen.

Tomb Raider sees the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC get a nice performance increase over the reference R9 290 4GB. Thanks to the overclock, you can see it's not actually all that far away from the more expensive R9 290X 4GB in "Uber Mode."
