Hitman Absolution continues this trend of just awesome FPS across the board. The bad news is you can see we hit an FPS wall at all resolutions. The good news is that the FPS wall comes quite late and offers us extremely playable FPS.

 

Alongside that, though, you can see the FPS wall seems to come later then our other setups. This is the second time we've seen this here today and it seems like AMD might've put a bit of work into these new drivers.

 

 

Tomb Raider

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Performance under Tomb Raider is exceptional at all resolutions with the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 8GB coming out ahead of our other setups at 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050. At 2560 x 1600 you can see it falls just short of what the CrossFire R9 290X 4GB setup is seeing.
