At the lower resolutions, we can see that the HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo manages to come out a little bit ahead of the reference card on the older drivers. Overall, though, we don't see too much difference, and at the end of it all, we see that the HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo manages to offer us strong, playable FPS at all resolutions, which is always the main thing.

Nexuiz performance is pretty similar across the board, with numbers that fall short at both 1920x1200 and 2560x1600. At the lower 1680x1050 resolutions, though, you can see we've got a solid 69 FPS, which makes our game playable.
