Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280X TRI-X 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.

In the comparison field I have three different versions of the R9 280X: two from Sapphire and one from ASUS. They are stacked performance-wise pretty much as the clock speeds on each card dictate. The R9 280X Vapor-X is between the Toxic Edition and the DCII card from ASUS. There was nothing out of the ordinary when looking at the FCAT results.
