Metro: Last Light manages to see some strong FPS at 1680 x 1050, as the extra MHz helps push our Sapphire R9 285 2GB ITX Compact into the 70 FPS range. Moving to 1920 x 1200, you can see a nice boost that actually lines us up with the R9 280X Vapor-X OC; unfortunately we're just below that 60 FPS number we're always-on the hunt for with our 58 FPS average.

Looking at Nexuiz, you can see we manage to sneak in with a playable number at 1680 x 1050. Moving higher than that, though, the overall FPS average is just way too low.
