Hammer Time! Moonman Sets New 1xGPU Heaven DX11 Record With Radeon R9 290X At 1540/1800 MHz

Although AMD's latest Radeon R9 290X is an interesting card to bench and overclock, it seems the bitcoin frenzy is affecting the amount of overclockers putting this card through its paces. In addition, the cards seem quite flaky under cold which make them difficult to handle. Nevertheless, the top of the crop is benching these cards hard and with AMDs Tessellation "optimization" features, Heaven DX11 is the primary choice for many overclockers.

Especially Moonman and Pro OC Phil have been going at it lately, topping each other record twice now. Just this morning -Taipei time- Moonman hammered (pun intended) Phil's record and is now the first to achieve over 5500 points with a single GPU graphics card. Awesome! We look forward to Phil's response to this great score!

For those who enjoy a bit of background information, we have included a list of the last 10 Unigine Heaven DX11 1xGPU records.
