Thanks to our GPU Benchmark, we have measured the AMD Radeon R9 290X as an average gaming performer a score of 27%.
The Radeon R9 290X has 4 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 312 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 512 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.
and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 947 MHz.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon R9 290X supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 250W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
