You can see a single R9 295X2 8GB has no problems running Hitman Absolution at this 4K resolution. When we threw the second card into the mix, we just couldn't get the benchmark to run. It would either freeze up or crash out before it loaded.

Tomb Raider performance is really interesting. With a single card, we would put the game at just playable. The average falls short, but thanks to the strong 40 FPS minimum, we would give it a passing grade.

 

Adding the second card into the mix, though, almost triples the performance to extremely playable. The results continued to be consistent no matter how many times we ran the benchmark.
