My bad. I just concentrated on your example, not the actual question.
However, what's wrong with your above approach
"[ np.unravel_index(i, x.shape) for i in idx[-3:] ]" ?
Especially if your n largest elements are just a small fraction of all
# Note also the differencies
a= np.asarray([[1, 8, 2], [2, 3, 3], [3, 4, 1]])
print [np.unravel_index(ind, a.shape) for ind in np.argsort(a.ravel())[-n:]]
print [np.where(val== a) for val in np.sort(a.ravel())[-n:]]
