Metro Last Light, while slightly older, continues to be extremely taxing on systems. While you can see our heavily overclocked HIS IceQ R9 290X iPower Hybrid iTurbo 4GB manages to come out ahead of all our other setups, at the highest resolution, you can see that it falls short of the 60 FPS average we're always-on the hunt for. Of course, we're only a single FPS away from it, so we couldn't get much closer.

 

 

Nexuiz

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Nexuiz continues to be one of the most intensive games we have thanks to being based on the taxing CryEngine 3.While 2560 x 1600 isn't an option on any of our setups, you can see that the heavily overclocked HIS IceQ R9 290X iPower Hybrid iTurbo 4GB is the only card that's able to break the 60 FPS barrier at 1920 x 1200.
