XFX R9 290X Double Dissipation 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 slightly lower core clock speed on the XFX R9 290X DD keeps the performance level about 1FPS slower than the PowerColor R9 290X. The higher the resolution gets, the closer in performance the XFX R9 290X DD gets to the GTX 780 in this game. Frame time variances are not all that large when looking at the results in the charts. Both R9 290X cards track similarly.
