AMD Radeon R9 290X 4 GB Review | techPowerUp

AMD’s Radeon R9 290X high-end graphics card finally hit the road. When NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX TITAN this March, and at a time when the GeForce GTX 690 had already established a performance lead over AMD, it wasn’t just an effort by the company to step up profit margins, but to also dominate AMD’s product stack with an unassailable performance lead for a single-GPU product, and then go on to charge a bitter $999 for it. NVIDIA pulled that off for seven months running and is now faced with AMD’s response, the $549 Radeon R9 290X we review today.
