In F1 2012, players will feel the unparalleled thrill of becoming a FORMULA ONE driver with a host of new features, wide-ranging technical and gameplay advancements, and extensive competitive and co-operative multiplayer components. F1 2012 will feature all of the official teams, drivers, and circuits from the 2012 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, including the debut of the 2012 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX at Austin, Texas and the return of Germany's famous Hockenheim circuit to the calendar.

Compared to the reference R9 290X 4GB, you can see the MSI R9 290X 4GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC falls back. This isn't uncommon under F1 2012, and you can see that the overclocked MSI GTX 780 Lightning 3GB also goes backwards in performance. Fortunately, we're able to see strong FPS at all resolutions still. Of course, we'd rather not take a hit in performance.
