Lost Planet 2 sees some fantastic numbers across the board, which puts our Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X CrossFire setup ahead of all the other setups here. While you might think a 131 FPS average at 2560 x 1600 is useless, the fact that we now have 2560 x 1440 screens that offer a refresh rate of 144Hz means it has just become a whole lot more useful. Combined with a 144Hz screen, this is a gaming experience that is going to look super smooth.

Just Cause 2

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Just Cause 2 sees some great gains, but overall, they weren't really needed, as we now shoot into the 200 FPS range for averages. Let's move onto something a bit more intensive to see how the setup does.
