ASUS Radeon R9 280X Review
Metro 2033 has never been the most competent game engine in the world and we're sure that you're as tired of hearing about its poor performance as we are telling you. However, the R9 280X backs up the belief that it prefers the Radeon cards to those from nVidia, with 57FPS average in 1920 and 32FPS at the higher 2560 resolution.
Metro Last Light
All that time we spent waiting for Last Light and it's still clearly coded for some mythical future computer. Because of its recent release we've hardly got a wealth of results to choose from, but it looks both great and terrible for the 280X. On the one hand the GTX760, for the first time, matches the performance of the Radeon R9 280X. Yet in the high resolution test the 280X is a match for the GTX780. It's probably fair to say that the performance, or lack thereof, of Last Light is the key factor here rather than the card you use.
