Metro: Last Light doesn't see too much difference between the two setups. While the R9 290X 4GB does manage to come out ahead at all resolutions, it's only by two FPS each time. The game also becomes unplayable at the higher 2560 x 1600 resolution, as we come in at under 60 FPS.

Sleeping Dogs performance is heavily in favor of the ASUS GTX 970 4GB STRIX OC here, with solid FPS shown at all resolutions. At the lower resolutions, we also see that the AMD R9 290X 4GB sits fairly far back due to a wall being hit at around 140 FPS. The same issue isn't seen with our NVIDIA card, as the 1680 x 1050 average manages to sneak just past 200 FPS.
