Sniper Elite V2 gains are fantastic across the board, and you can see we've got some awesome performance coming out of our Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X CrossFire setup. Like we mentioned under Lost Planet 2, while you may think over 100 FPS at 2560 x 1600 is a bit pointless, the introduction of these new high resolution 144Hz monitors means achieving massive FPS is a whole lot more appealing now.

 

 

Sleeping Dogs

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

At the lower resolutions, you can see Sleeping Dogs hits a bit of a CPU wall with a 179 FPS average being shown at both 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200. Moving to 2560 x 1600, you can see the wall isn't hit, but an extremely solid 152 FPS average is seen from out Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X CrossFire setup.
