Lost Planet 2

Lost Planet 2 performance is strong across the board, and you can see playing the game at any resolution isn't an issue. Saying that, you do see that the ASUS GTX 780 3GB we've got here does manage to come out ahead at all resolutions.

 

 

Just Cause 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Again, looking at something a bit older, like Just Cause 2, you can see that the performance of the heavily overclocked HIS IceQ R9 290X iPower Hybrid iTurbo 4GB is extremely strong, like our other high-end offerings here.

 

We're able to play smoothly at all resolutions, including the highest. This strong 136 FPS average is great news for people looking at those new 1440P 144Hz gaming monitors.
