Dirt Showdown

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Dirt Showdown sees a nice performance bump over the R9 270X 2GB at all resolutions. It's unfortunate that we don't quite have the performance we need at the highest resolutions, though; the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC manages to just fall slightly short of that 60 FPS average we're always-on the hunt for.

Nexuiz sees the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC sit only just behind its big brother. Overall, though, you can see that we just don't get the FPS we need at any resolution for the game to be playable.
