F1 2012 numbers across the board are strong with the 161 FPS limitation being hit at both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050. At the highest resolution, you can again see that we're only just a few FPS behind the more expensive R9 290 4GB.

Metro Last Light sees some excellent performance out of the MSI R9 280X 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC. Unlike the Double D 3GB Edition from XFX, you can see that our MSI offering is able to break the 60 FPS barrier at 1920 x 1200.
