Lost Planet 2 numbers are solid across the board, and you can see that at the highest resolution we manage to achieve a solid 65 FPS average. This is the biggest difference between it and the R9 270X, which fails to offer playable FPS at the highest resolution.

 

 

Just Cause 2

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Just Cause 2, just like Lost Planet 2, sees some great numbers across the board. At the highest resolution, we can see that the GIGABYTE R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB OC manages to offer a strong 79 FPS average. In this instance, we can see that the R9 280 manages to sneak out a win against the GTX 770 2GB.
