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.




F1 2012 performance is really strong across the board with some great numbers being seen from the XFX R9 280X Double D Black Edition OC. At the highest resolution, we're just a few FPS behind the GTX 770 2GB, but below that, you can see the XFX offering manages to sneak out ahead. Because of the FPS wall we see at the lower resolutions, you can see the XFX and Visiontek offerings perform almost identical.


At the highest resolution, though, you can see the extra MHz help give us a couple of extra FPS, closing the gap between the NVIDIA and XFX offerings.
