Sniper Elite V2 numbers are great across the board. At the highest resolution, you can see a strong performance increase from the MSI R9 280X 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC, which sees our card move out of the 60 FPS range and into the 70 FPS, giving us more breathing room, which is something that is always appreciated.

 

 

Sleeping Dogs

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Sleeping Dogs numbers are slightly ahead of the XFX Double D Black Edition at all resolutions. The gains aren't huge here, though. The main thing is that we've got playable FPS at all resolutions.
