Hitman Absolution

Hitman Absolution numbers across the board are extremely strong at all resolutions with playable numbers being seen. Comparing the two R9 280X offerings here, you can see that there's really no difference between them with the overclock and extra memory really doing little under this game.

 

 

Tomb Raider

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Looking at Tomb Raider, you can see we've got playable FPS at both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050. Just like we saw under Hitman Absolution, though, you can see both our R9 280X cards perform almost identical at all resolutions.
