Lost Planet 2 sees the HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB perform well at both 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200. It isn't until we move to 2560 x 1600 that we see the FPS drop below 60 FPS. While the GTX 760 doesn't have the same issue, just like Heaven, the fact that the game is heavy on tessellation, means that it has always favored NVIDIA offerings.

 

 

Just Cause 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Just Cause 2 numbers are great across the board. We see playable numbers at all resolutions, and you can see with the overclock and the most recent driver our HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB breaks into the 70 FPS range, when compared against the reference card.
