While NVIDIA cards tend to favor Heaven due to the strong emphasis on Tessellation, you can see that, thanks to the strong overclock we managed to achieve on the Sapphire R9 290X Vapor-X OC, the AMD based offering manages to score extremely well at both resolutions, coming out ahead of the competition.

PSO 2 performance is just ballistic. You can see that we have a massive score coming out of the heavily overclocked Sapphire R9 290X Vapor-X OC. PSO 2 has always loved massively overclocked cards, and you can see here the kind of performance gains the Sapphire card gets when compared to the reference version of the R9 290X 4GB.
