The GIGABYTE R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB OC gets a nice little boost over the R9 280X in Heaven. Looking above, though, you can see that it leans more towards the R9 270X in this case. The R9 280X, on the other hand, performs around 20 percent faster at both resolutions.

PSO 2 performance sees a score that sits on the lower side of things. This isn't a huge surprise considering we bench this particular game at 2560x1600. Moving down to 1680x1050 or 1920x1080 will see numbers that are more than enough.
