For the most part, we can see most of our higher-end setups bounce off the FPS wall under F1 2012. Overall, you can see the high-end NVIDIA offerings manage to come out slightly ahead here. In the end, though, the game is playable on all cards here at all resolutions.

Metro Last Light sees our high-end overclocked cards performing quite closely to each other here, with the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Vapor-X OC coming out ahead at the lower resolutions but the MSI GTX 780 6GB coming out ahead at the higher resolution. The one thing, though, is that, at the highest resolutions, all cards fail to hit that 60 FPS average we're on the hunt for.
