Sniper Elite V2 numbers look good across the board, and while we fall short of the NVIDIA GTX 780 offerings at all resolutions, we do see extremely playable FPS from the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Vapor-X OC. At the highest resolution here, we see a solid 92 FPS.

 

 

Sleeping Dogs

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Sleeping Dogs performance is strong at all resolutions, and playability is not an issue with a solid 122 FPS being seen at the highest resolution. While you can see at the lower resolution the Sapphire R9 290 4GB Vapor-X OC falls below our GTX 780s, at the highest resolution, it fits firmly in between both.
