Join fellow adventurers and fight against the legions of darkness to banish them from the galaxy.

 

Score explanation: Less than 2000: Please adjust your game settings because the processing load is quite heavy.

2000 through 5000: The game runs fine at the setting, if you have room, you can adjust some settings.

5001+: The game works wonderfully at this setting.

PSO2 really sees a massive jump between the two modes here. You can see it's easily enough to get a good jump on the GTX TITAN SuperClocked. Not quite enough to come out ahead of our heavily overclocked MSI GTX 780 Lightning, though.

 

PSO2 makes excellent use of overclocking, though, and I think when we throw overclocking into the mix on the R9 280X, we should see another large increase in performance.
