Metro Last Light sees the HIS R9 290X iPower IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB outperform all of our other cards, sneaking just ahead of our heavily overclocked MSI GTX 780 6GB. At the highest resolution, you can see we still fall a little short of that 60 FPS we're on the hunt for.

Nexuiz sees our HIS R9 290X iPower IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB and heavily overclocked GTX 780 6GB from MSI perform nearly identically at all resolutions. That means that 1680x1050 isn't an issue, but 1920x1200 falls short by just an FPS or two depending on the card. Moving to 2560x1600 means that the FPS plummet, and both cards score just a 32 FPS average.
