Out the gate, we see our Sapphire R9 290 4GB Vapor-X OC perform well with a decent performance increase over the other R9 290 4GB cards here. This sees it sit ahead of the more expensive R9 290X 4GB.

Moving into Fire Strike, we see some great performance. We not only see a good boost in performance when compared to the other R9 290 4GB offerings here, but we also see it manage to outperform our overclocked GTX 780 6GB from MSI.
