F1 2012 numbers are good; you can see that the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC manages to sit a bit ahead of its younger brother, the R9 280X 2GB. More importantly, though, we've got playable FPS at all resolutions.

 

 

Metro Last Light

While Metro Last Light sees the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC sit ahead of the R9 280X 2GB at all resolutions, you can see we fall short of that 60 FPS average we're on the hunt for at all resolutions.
