Sniper Elite V2 performance from the PowerColor setup was already very strong, but you can see by overclocking the MSI cards even higher, the numbers jump up even higher. This is good news for people interested in those 140 Hz+ monitors with the large 2560 x 1600 resolution.

 

 

Sleeping Dogs

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Sleeping Dogs performance doesn't move much. At the lower resolutions, you can see we're pretty much hitting the FPS wall that comes on at around the 180 FPS mark. However, moving to 2560 x 1600, we do see a gain that represents almost 10%. Overall, you can see the FPS are solid across the board.
