Default AMD R9 290X Will Be "Much Faster Than Titan in Battlefield 4"

The red team says that with Mantle, its new flagship GPU will “ridicule” the GeForce Titan

With AMD unveiling its new series of GPUs, many gamers want to know how well it performs, namely against Nvidia’s flagship GeForce GTX Titan graphics card.

We had a chance to sit down with AMD Product Manager Devon Nekechuck to see how AMD’s new top dog R9 290X stacks up against the green team’s best single-GPU offering. According to Nekechuck, even though the R9 290X uses a 438 square mm die, which is significantly smaller than the Titan’s 550 sq. mm GK110 offering, it “will definitely compete with the GTX 780 and Titan.” When we asked what this means in real-world terms, he stated, “with Battlefield 4 running with Mantle (AMD’s new graphics API), the card will be able to ‘ridicule’ the Titan in terms of performance.”


Is the R9 290X the Titan killer? AMD seems to think so

When we asked him what he meant by “ridicule,” he simply stated that it will run Battlefield 4 “much faster than the Titan.” Again, this is provided that you run the game using AMD's Mantle API, which is set to launch in December.

While no pricing has been announced for AMD's high-end GPU just yet, It is worth mentioning that Nekechuck did confirm to us that the company does not plan to release single-GPU cards in the $1,000 price range because AMD thinks that is such a small, niche market. When you consider that the GeForce Titan runs for one grand, it’s safe to assume that it will be a fair bit cheaper than $1K. Rumors abound the event are that the R9 290X will retail at around the 780 price point, which currently hovers around $650. May we see Titan+ performance for less than 780 price from AMD? Only time will tell.

Stay tuned to Maximum PC for pricing, release date, and benchmarks when we get one in!

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/R9_290X/

reviews are up. Hmm, looks like a nice card but runs hot and loud + uses a lot of power. TBH I would still go the Geforce GTX 780 even if I was in the market today. And damn that card is ugly!! compared to the Titan based coolers that Nvidia have far out!!!!

It beats the Titan! damn, pretty impressive!

Typical AMD lackluster product. Can't overtake a chip from a year ago (GK110 as a Tesla in Nov 12) but only match its performance and therefore fight the price game.

AMD at its best, as seen time and time again in the CPU and GPU world.

I certainly have the itch to do some upgrading. A couple of 780TI's and the new Rampage IV Black Edition and 4930k is mighty tempting.

An R9 290 without that turd of a cooler looks like what I'll be waiting for.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...rk,3659-6.html

I dont think a Ti is worth the extra £200 even if I had the money to burn on one.

If anything comes of Mantle... well I'll take that longshot.

I wonder how long these will take to sell with the crap cooler http://www.yoyotech.co.uk/saphire-ra...0-4096mb-gddr5 5 in stock on the 19 Nov.

nvidia needs to be much more aggressive with pricing if it wants to sell me anything this Christmas.

Good I like to see AMD put out a pretty good card,but if it is like most ,it will run warm to hot and be loud.I will stick with my whisper quiet ASUS GTX-670 SLI set-up for a long time.

John, I know what you mean. I almost bit the bullet with having a r9 280x from gigabyte. At idle, it was in the mid 40's. My gtx 770 sli is in the high 20's in sli, both cards. I don't know what it would have been like if i had two 280x's. Don't even want to think about that.
