Metro Last Light numbers look good for the Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X OC. Out of it, the R9 280 3GB, and the GTX 760, it's the only one to offer playable FPS at 1680 x 1050. It continues to hold the lead at the higher resolutions, but after 1680 x 1050, the number are no longer at a playable level.

Nexuiz performance is a little funny. Looking above, you can Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X OC falls behind the cheaper R9 280 3GB. We say it's funny, though, because while it lags behind, which ultimately isn't great for the model, it ultimately doesn't matter, as all three cards struggle to get playable numbers at any resolution anyway.
