The race is pretty tight at 1920×1080, though the Radeon R9 390X did exhibit some odd stuttering that was repeatable between game runs and reboots. Those spikes were less apparent at 2560×1440, adding to the mystery. The 4GB memory size on the R9 Nano seemed to be an issue as well, dropping performance below that of every other card on the bench.

The GTX 1070 flexes its muscle in GTA V at 2560×1440, coming out 36% ahead of the GTX 980 and 53% faster than the R9 Nano!
