Hitman: Absolution performance is great, and the strong core overclock we achieved sees the HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 OC 3GB give us an average of over 60 FPS at the highest resolution (something the GIGABYTE card couldn't do out of the box). You can also see we're well ahead of the GTX 770 2GB.

Tomb Raider seems to make great use of the strong core overclock here; the HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 OC 3GB manages to break the 60 FPS average barrier at 1920 x 1200. The GIGABYTE version fell behind at 56 FPS.
