Each of ASUS' DirectCU II cards offer playable frame rates in this game, even at 5760x1080. Comparing the performance of the R9 280X DirectCU II TOP and R9 280X Toxic, again, shows higher clock speeds offer higher performance. In the FCAT results, there is nothing out of the ordinary for the ASUS card while the Sapphire card shows a bunch of spikes that we did not see using previous drivers.
