F1 2012 sees the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC perform well at all resolutions with playable numbers not being an issue. We again see a performance increase come out of the setup, and overall, we see that again the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC sits quite close to the more expensive R9 290X 4GB running in "Uber Mode."

Metro Last Light sees nice performance at both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050. At 1920 x 1200, you can see that the overclock Sapphire has given the R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC is enough for the model to move out of the 60 FPS range, which the reference card sees, and into the 70 FPS range, which the Sapphire offering manages.
