Metro Last Light

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Looking at Metro: Last Light, you can see the performance is extremely strong at 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050. Although, at the highest resolutions, you do see we fall short of that 60 FPS average we're always-on the hunt for, which lines up with our other cards here. As for how our CF setups compares, though, you can see we fall short of heavily overclocked R9 290X 4GB options. However, we are ahead of the reference R9 290X 4GB.

 

 

Nexuiz

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Nexuiz doesn't only not make use of CrossFire, but it also loses performance slightly when compared to its single card option. Because of that, you can see we're not only behind the single R9 280X 3GB cards, but just below the 60 FPS average we need at all resolutions.
