Looking above, you can see that Sniper Elite V2 numbers are identical on both setups, with not a single FPS separating them. This is pretty much summing up our performance seen thus far at the massive 4K resolution with X79 vs. X99.

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Sleeping Dogs, as you can see, gets a bit of extra performance, when comparing the two setups, the extra 16 FPS equates to around 8%. The main problem is that you're not going to notice the difference between the X79 and its 208 FPS average and the X99 and its 224 FPS average.
