Whats that, and over 10k points in 3dmark 2013. Imagine that a properly cooled graphics card.. being well, a freaking beast. So being over 10000 points would put it once again being as fast if not faster then a 780TI
This is probably why AMD kept manfacturers from there own custom coolers, because they needed to castrate there own product so that third party manufacturers could do there job. And AMD could "come back" and regain the crown or at least match it or even win albeit it ever so slightly.
Which is keep the R290X being easily the one of the most powerful single GPUs on the market.
