Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
At 1920×1080 the GTX 770 has a slight performance advantage but at 2560×1440 the AMD R9 280X and the GTX 770 are basically neck and neck. Consider the cost cap between those cards AMD definitely looks like they have a winner on their hands with this price drop.
