PowerColor PCS+ R9 380X Myst Edition Review


PowerColor PCS+ R9 380X Myst Testing:

Metro: Last Light:

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.

  • 2x MSAA
  • Global settings = Very High

Take a trip back to San Andreas and Blaine County in Grand Theft Auto V, the latest entry in the long-running series. Developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games, the game runs on the RAGE engine with help from Euphoria and Bullet. In GTA V, we get three distinct criminals to control throughout a story with different twists and turns that has us upping the ante in each outing. Or just stealing cars and blowing up a lot of stuff. Your choice, really.

Project CARS:

Project CARS is a detailed racing simulation game developed by Slightly Mad Studios and distributed by Bandai Namco Games. This game is different in that it takes the sandbox approach, allowing you to choose your path to greatness. There are 74 driveable cars, over 30 unique locations, and at least 110 different real and made up tracks.



  • Texture Resolution = High
  • Texture Filtering = 16x

In Metro: Last Light, PowerColor's PCS+ R9 380X easily fits into the space between the the GTX 960 and GTX 970 when you look at the FPS delivered. When tested in GTA V, again the same scenario plays out in regards with how the PCS+ R9 380X scales. In Project CARS, the PCS+ R9 380X delivers FPS performance results at the top end of the AMD comparison field, but falls short when compared directly with the GTX 960. Overclocking does help its cause, but there is just enough in the tank to get to stock GTX 960 performance levels.
