Looking at BioShock Infinite, you can see the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC has no problem at 1920x1200 and 1680x1050. Just like the cards above it, though, we struggle at 2560x1600. While the R9 290 and R9 290X 4GB offerings do get closer to 60 FPS, they still remain below that playable number we're always-on the hunt for.

 

 

Battlefield 4

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Origin Update

Battlefield 4 sees the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC performing really well at all resolutions, with gaming not being an issue across the board. At the highest resolution, you can see that the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC and the more expensive R9 290 4GB sit quite closely to each other.
