Hitman: Absolution doesn't see too much of a change when compared to the lower-end GTX 970 version of the STRIX card. We see a bit more of a boost at the highest resolution, but overall, we see solid FPS out of both NVIDIA cards at all resolutions.

 

 

Tomb Raider

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Moving onto Tomb Raider, you can see that the R9 290X manages to get a leg up on the GTX 970 across the board. Thanks to the extra performance from the GTX 980, though, we manage to surpass the R9 290X without any issues. As for the overall FPS, while we fall a little short of that 60 FPS average we want at 2560 x 1600, thanks to the solid 41 FPS minimum, gameplay should be fairly smooth overall.
