Lost Planet 2 numbers are really strong and you've got playable numbers at all resolutions just as you'd hope and expect. Compared to the R9 290X 4GB setup, you can also see the new AMD video card is ahead of it at all resolutions. At the highest resolution the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB puts out a massive 182 FPS, up on the already strong, but lower than the 157 FPS seen on the R9 290X 4GB CrossFire setup.

 

 

Just Cause 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

At both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050, you can see we're hitting a bit of an FPS wall, which means that the R9 290 4GB CF, R9 290X 4GB CF and R9 295X2 8GB all see very similar FPS.

 

Move to 2560 x 1600, though, when the wall isn't hit, and we see the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB score a massive 202 FPS. Looking above, you can see this is the same average that the R9 290X 4GB gets... at the lower 1680 x 1060 resolution.
