Sniper Elite V2 numbers look strong across the board, and thanks to that strong core clock we achieved, the HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 OC 3GB manages to break past the 60 FPS barrier at the highest resolutions. This is something the GIGABYTE R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB couldn't do out of the box.

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Here we continue to see that the HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 OC 3GB provides strong performance gains over the GIGABYTE version when overclocked so high on the core. Performance remains close to that of the R9 280X Vapor-X OC from Sapphire, and in this case, we manage to come out ahead of the GTX 770 2GB.
