Sniper Elite V2 sees a nice performance bump at all resolutions, which helps continue the trend of strong performance at all resolutions here. You can see that the overclock isn't quite enough to put us ahead of the NVIDIA offerings, though. Of course, the main thing is that we've got playable FPS, and, with an 87 FPS average at 2560 x 1600, you can see that's clearly not an issue.
