AMD Radeon R9 280X, R9 270X and R7 260X Review
Skyrim - R9 280X
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (DirectX 9)
The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered.
Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.
The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

Here is a video our testing run through, for your reference
Intersting results here - the Radeon R9 280X is faster than the GTX 770 at 1920x1080 but when we turn up the resolution to 2560x1440 the NVIDIA GTX 770 is faster - and by a large margin. The R9 280X is still ahead of the GTX 760 2GB card but this is one of the only results that shows the edge hanging with NVIDIA's much more expensive GeForce offering.
