ASUS R9 280X DirectCU II TOP & R9 270 DirectCU II OC Testing:

Part first-person shooter, part survival horror, Metro: Last Light is the follow-up to the extremely popular game Metro 2033. Developed by 4A games and published by Deepsilver, this game uses the 4A game engine. In this game, set a year after the missile strike on the Dark Ones, you continue on as Artyom as he digs deeper into the bowels of the Metro.

The ASUS R9 280X DirectCU II TOP matches up well with the Sapphire Toxic edition card in this game, especially at 5760x1080. Sapphire's higher clock speed pays dividends in an out-of-the-box race, but when you get down to running identical clock speeds, the performance is going to be identical. The ASUS R9 270 DiretCU II OC gets a little left behind here. At 1920x1080 it is right on the cusp of 30FPS. Tweaking the settings a little will easily get you up and over that number for some pretty decent 1080p gaming. Our FCAT results didn't show anything unexpected in this series of results.
