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.

At the lower resolution, you can see for some reason the ASUS card falls a little behind the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB TOXIC.

 

When we move to 2560 x 1600, though, and apply the most pressure on the card, you can see that it gets a nice boost in performance, which equates to over 5%.
