While BioShock Infinite sees the R9 280 struggle at the highest resolution, the strong core clock we managed to get on the HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 OC 3GB really helps give us a bit more breathing room at 1920 x 1200. We moved up from the 62 FPS average seen on the GIGABYTE R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB OC, to 69 FPS seen on our overclocked HIS version.

Looking above, you can see that we manage to get great performance across the board from the HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 OC 3GB. Thanks to the strong overclock, at 2560 x 1600 we moved from an average that is below 60 FPS to an average over 60 FPS when compared to the GIGABYTE version.
