At 1920x1080 and 5760x1080, the FPS performance delivered by the R9 280X Toxic is on par with the GTX 770 for the most part with a less than 1FPS margin recorded.
The percentile charts do not give us much to go on and again are pretty flat, showing the frame times are fairly tight given the circumstances. At 1920x1080 the frame time charts look pretty rough, but looking at the range of the variances we see some spikes of up to 8ms. At 5760x1080 the range increases dramatically due to the lower FPS results. In this game with the settings used the only GPU to get above 30FPS ws the GTX 780.
