Dirt Showdown favors the AMD offerings, and you can see our Sapphire R9 290 4GB Vapor-X OC offers some great performance numbers at all resolutions. We not only see a nice boost over the other R9 290s here, but also a good lead over the NVIDIA offerings.

Nexuiz sees some handy gains with the overclock we achieved on the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Vapor-X OC, giving it the bump it needs to hit 60 FPS at 1920 x 1200. Looking above, you can see it's the only card here that manages to do that. The MSI GTX 780 6GB OC does sit just an FPS behind it, though.
