Lost Planet 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Standalone Benchmark

Lost Planet 2 numbers are great across the board, with playable numbers being seen at all resolutions. At the highest resolution, we see a solid 73 FPS out of the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC. Looking above, you can see the R9 270X 2GB falls short of that 60 FPS number we want.

 

 

Just Cause 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Just Cause 2 numbers, just like Lost Planet 2 above, are great, with playable numbers being seen at all resolutions. Across the board, you can see that the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC manages to sit quite closely to the HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo that sits above it.
