When playing F1, again at maximum detail levels, we see that this is a game which performs very well on AMD based hardware. Whether we are playing at 1920×1080 or 5760×1080 the PowerColor card is faster. That said the framerates offered by Gainward are completely smooth/playable.

Here are examples of how the game looks at our tested settings.
