When it came to Sky Diver, we saw the overclocked R9 290X 4GB take the win here against the reference card. Thanks to the strong overclock that ZOTAC offered us, though, the model was able to make up its lost ground and surpass it. However, throw in that strong overclock that we achieved on the MSI card, and the lead is pushed even further!

Catzilla was another benchmark that saw the reference GTX 980 4GB take on the overclocked R9 290X 4GB without an issue. Looking above, you can see the gains are quite substantial. The overclocked R9 290X 4 GB saw a score in the low 7,000 region. The reference GTX 980 4GB pushed a score in the low 8,000 region, while the strong pre-overclocked card from ZOTAC scrapped past the 9,000 point mark at the higher resolution.

 

Move onto our MSI GTX 980 4GB Twin Frozr V Gaming OC and some manual overclocking, and you can see that we're able to sneak into the 10,000 point region, a number that is over 3,000 points higher, or roughly 40% greater than the overclocked R9 290X 4GB card!
