Looking above, you can see that our HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo hits an FPS wall under F1 2012 like most of our other cards here. Overall, we see a lot of our setups perform quite closely to each other here. More importantly, though, we've got strong FPS across the board, meaning that playing the game isn't going to be a problem at any resolution.

Metro Last Light sees the HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo get a slight performance boost over the reference card, equating to around 5 percent at the higher resolutions. This is great at 1920x1200 as the card gets a bit more breathing room with a 69 FPS average. At the higher 2560x1600 resolution, though, you can see our overall FPS number is a little too far behind that 60 FPS number.
