Heaven performance sits back a fair bit again, and it's quite interesting to see the increase in performance you get when moving to the entry-level R9 card from HIS. Let's get away from the synthetic benchmarks, though, and see what's going on when we get into some real games.

 

 

Phantasy Star Online 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Standalone Benchmark

Looking at Phantasy Star Online 2 performance, you can see we sit back a fair bit, with performance being less than half that of the R9 270X 2GB. Still, we're not sure you're going to be playing any games with this card at 2560 x 1600. Move the resolution back a bit, and you're going to get playable numbers under Phantasy Star Online 2.
