Is the Radeon r9 280x worth it over the Gtx 760 in 900 to 1080p gaming and overall performance?

Appreciate your opinions.

As far as I can tell, it's on par with the GTX 770. However, it's $100 less than the GTX 770 so I would DEFINITELY get the R9.

forget the new stuff its just old stuff with a new face sorta like trash in a new trash can. Get the 7970 while it lasts its only below 300 now and you get 3 free games can't beat that!!!

The r9 290x outperforms the gtx titan in every way except physx of course.

OP: The GTX 760 is actually quite a bit below the R9-280x from the benches I've seen, as another poster noted its more on par with the GTX770. In any event, the R9-280x is shaping up to be a real nice low end enthusiast/gamer card. It's about 2-3 clicks below Titan performance for what $269? That's awesome!

Yes, the R9-280x is a rebuilt 7970Ghz edition, but it's looking to be a lot cooler and quieter than the 7970 in addition to carrying the TrueAudio. Check this out: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/radeon_r7_260x_r9_... (best benchmark article I've seen with the new Radeon cards so far.)


Anyway, if your choice is between the GTX 760 and the R9-280x it's a no brainer, get the R9-280x. However, if you're debating a GTX 770 vs the R9-280x the scores are real tight on performance, but the R9-280x really shines in the other "less oft considered" stuff; power consumption, heat, and noise. I think this is a case of newer is better.

That he is, although he DID say R9-290X, not R9-280X, so he just might be correct. LOL

I would agree with you but the 290x still hasn't came out yet.
Also, the titan has held that spot for awhile, it only now is being heckled with.

Lol, how come there arent "Nvidia Fanboys" ? every time someone tries to counter argument with someone who prefers Nvidia they are met with thunderous shock....it rises ...rises up..like...like storm..as if you were the thunder god himself.

Seriously though from what ive seen it does beat the titan, HOLD THE PHONE as I said from what ive SEEN ....so ctfd

I think it comes from both sides, like politics. But i just speak facts, i don't get into all that.
Like i said though, there are no concrete benchmarks of the 290x. If you have any, I would like to see them though.

The Titan has been the fastest gpu all year, which is why it is a 1000$, because NVidia didn't have any competition; now they will. It will be interesting to see how it all pans out.

well according to the image above the gtx 760 is better than the r9 270X


how stupid can you get? bf3 is optimized for nvidia cards(that means it basically runs better on nvidia cards). the 280x will be better than the 760 on bf4 -_- you have to look at multiple benchmarks

Believe it or not the 290x is not better than the Titan in raw performance. It was called a Titan killer but still didn't beat it. What it does beat is the 780 slightly but at significantly higher temps and Power. I can't recommend a Titan obviously as the 780 ti is better.

The titan really isn't a gaming card either.
The 290x was more competition than anything.
