Sniper Elite V2 numbers are strong across the board with a nice little performance increase being seen on the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Tri-X OC. Compared to the R9 290X in "Uber Mode," you can see that the Sapphire offering manages to perform just a single FPS behind the more expensive video card.

 

 

Sleeping Dogs

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update
