Heaven performance is fantastic at both resolutions. You can see that the heavily overclocked HIS IceQ R9 290X iPower Hybrid iTurbo 4GB has no problem coming out ahead of the other setups here.

 

While NVIDIA cards tend to favor Heaven due to the heavy emphasis on tessellation, the sheer performance that is on offer from these R9 290X 4GB cards see them come out a decent chunk ahead, especially the water cooled HIS offering.

PSO2 performance has always made great use of AMD overclocks and here is no different. You can see that overall performance is massive, and we see that the heavily overclocked HIS IceQ R9 290X iPower Hybrid iTurbo 4GB manages to perform strong against the other also strongly overclocked HIS R9 290X 4GB.
