Thanks to the FPS wall being hit later on the NVIDIA cards, we see the MSI GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Gaming OC outperform the AMD offers easily at 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200.

 

At the highest resolution, you can see that the MSI GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Gaming OC lines up with the R9 290 4GB with a minimum that is slightly up and an average that is slightly down. Overall, though, at 2560 x 1600, the FPS are extremely solid.

 

 

Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider performance is really strong here and at the lower resolutions, we see numbers that line up with our heavily overclocked R9 290X 4GB. At the highest resolution, we see a strong minimum and an average that is just a little too low for our liking. Compared against the competition, though, you can see it's slightly ahead of the R9 290 4GB again.
