F1 2012 sees some great performance again with playable numbers at all resolutions. At the lower resolutions, you can see we manage to come out ahead of the R9 290 4GB.

 

Moving to 2560 x 1600, though, we see that performance is pretty much inline with the R9 280X 3GB TOXIC from Sapphire, even, though, the ASUS card is overclocked a decent chunk higher.
