3DMark11 Firestrike & Asus ARES III

kraizer81
Level 8
So, I tested my Ares 3 last night. Got a score of 16575. I thought thats pretty impressive. But when I look at my hardware info on 3DMark11, it listed my GPU as an AMD Radeon R9290X. I thought the Ares 3 is a watercooled Radeon R9 295x2?Just curious because the 3DMark11 site listed the Radeon R9 295x2 score at 26000 something. Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks in advance.

both Ares III and R9 295x2 are actually an already-crossfired of two R9 290x
the way it listed there just depends on how your graphic driver read your card as.

that guy uses two of 295x2, using two of dual-gpu are equal as quadfire
