Sniper Elite V2 features detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, taking into account gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, aim stability and more. Guaranteed to provide players with the most realistic simulation of military sharpshooting yet available.

Sniper Elite V2 sees the VisionTek R9 280X 3GB score almost identical with the HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB at all resolutions.

 

The good news is that means we've got playable numbers at all resolutions, the bad news is it means that compared to the GTX 770 2GB, we're lagging behind at all resolutions. This includes a 9 FPS difference at the highest resolution, which would've been nice as we sit in the mid 60 FPS range with the AMD cards.
