At 1440p, gamers will require no less than an R9 290/390 or GTX 970 just to break the 40fps barrier and we are of course talking about the average frame rate here. These GPUs only just kept the minimum frame rate from dipping into the 20s.
At the top of the food chain the Fury X wasn't a great deal slower than the GTX 980 Ti and we are confident with an optimized driver the Fury X will end up alongside its green competitor.
As for mid-range graphics cards such as the R9 380 and GTX 960, they aren't really designed for AAA gaming at 1440p using high quality settings, so their sub-30fps average shouldn't be a huge shock in this stunning title.
