The core gameplay of Sleeping Dogs consists of giving the player an open world environment in which to move around freely. Sleeping Dogs is played as an over-the-shoulder, third-person perspective action-adventure game with role-playing elements. The player controls Wei Shen, a Chinese-American police officer, as he goes undercover to infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad organization. On foot, the player character has the ability to walk, run, jump, climb over obstacles and swim, as well as use weapons and martial arts in combat. Players also drive a variety of vehicles including cars, boats, and motorcycles.

Sleeping Dogs seems to hit a wall at around the 135 FPS number with NVIDIA cards and because of that you can see it falls behind the cheaper R9 280X 3GB TOXIC from Sapphire at the lower resolutions.

 

At the highest resolution, though, when the FPS wall doesn't come into play, you can see it manages to come out ahead by a strong 10%. Most importantly, though, is the fact we've got playable FPS at all resolutions.
