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.

We continue to see these great numbers across the board, and you can see again at the highest resolution, the overclock helps us move out of the 60 FPS zone and into the 70 FPS zone.

 

These are the kind of improvements we love to see when overclocking. Sure, going from 124 FPS to 144 FPS at 1680 x 1050 is great, but the gains at 2560 x 1600 are much more helpful.
