In Game Benchmarks

As always, all of the other numbers are great, but when it comes down to it we buy nice video cards to play games. To see how well the Dual-X R9 280 OC will perform in actual games I ran through a variety of games to get an average FPS in each. That means you can expect to see higher and lower FPS, but this is around the average you should see. Out of the 11 games tested 7 of the average FPS were above 60, what most people considering to be a great framerate. One of the games, Metro Last light, was less than one FPS away from 60 with its 59.33 average. Most came in considerably higher though, like F1 2013 for example with an average of 122 FPS. The games that didn’t reach 60 FPS did all have what most consider playable frame rates with the lowest at a still respectable 44 FPS. While the Dual-X R9 280 OC didn’t top our charts, the end result is that you can expect to be able to play anything on the market right now with the settings turned up at 1080p, it isn’t until you start running higher resolutions, multiple monitors, or high refresh rate monitors that you will really need much more power to enjoy your games.
