Unlike Heaven, you can see that Unigine Valley Benchmarks seem to benefit a bit more with the extra MHz and memory, with a strong increase shown that puts our 8GB version of the R9 290X ahead of the GTX 970 4GB. Although, you can see that the GTX 980 4GB continues to dominate the others setups here.

 

 

Just Cause 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Just Cause 2 performance is pretty much hitting a mid-80s FPS wall at all resolutions, which sees all of our cards sit fairly close together here. However, at the highest resolution, you see our AMD offerings have a decent jump over the GTX 970 4GB in this case.
