Dirt Showdown sees a performance increase at all resolutions, and here you can see that the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC manages to outperform the "Uber Mode" R9 290X 4GB slightly across the board.

Looking above, you can see that the overclock we've got on the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC helps us move away from the 60 FPS range on the reference card and into the 70 FPS range on the Sapphire one like we saw under Metro Last Light.

While we manage to see some nice gains at the other resolutions, it's not enough for the game to be playable. We do see that, at the higher resolutions, the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC manages to outpace our R9 290X 4GB in "Uber Mode."
