BioShock Infinite sees the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC perform well over the R9 270X 2GB. At 1920 x 1200, though, you can see we fall just a few FPS short of that 60 FPS number we're always-on the hunt for.

 

 

Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 numbers look great at both 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200. While we do get a solid 31 FPS minimum at 2560 x 1600, the 50 FPS average is just too low for us to consider the game playable.
