Metro: Last Light sees some fantastic gains from the overclocked MSI R9 280 3GB Twin Gaming OC in CrossFire setup, which sees 2560 x 1600 finally become playable thanks to a strong 64 FPS average. Looking above, you can see none of our other setups manage to get these kind of scores.

Looking above, you can see under Nexuiz the overclocked MSI R9 280 3GB Twin Gaming OC in CrossFire setup manages to get a bit of a jump on the PowerColor setup thanks to the extra MHz offered. Overall, though, you can see that Nexuiz doesn't make use of CrossFire, and in the end, performance is below the single card solutions.
