Lost Planet 2 sees the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Vapor-X OC perform very well, and at all resolutions, it offers extremely playable numbers across the board. It's not quite lining up with the NVIDIA offerings, though, which manage to come out ahead at all resolutions.

 

 

Just Cause 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Just Cause 2 numbers, like Lost Planet 2, are very strong across the board at all resolutions. We see the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Vapor-X OC perform extremely well with the game not being an issue. Against the NVIDIA options, you can see it falls a little behind the MSI offering at 1680 x 1050. As we climb the resolution table, though, it manages to pull ahead and come out in front.
