Looking above, you can see our two R9 290 4GB cards perform quite similarly at 1920 x 1200 and 2560 x 1600. Looking at 1680 x 1050, though, you can see the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC manages to have a slight increase.

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Just Cause 2 sees a nice performance boost at all resolutions, which puts the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC right on the tale of the R9 290X 4GB in "Uber Mode" again.
