When it comes to Hitman Absolution, you can again see that we've got a slight difference between the two setups with the X99 setup getting a slight performance increase in both the minimum and average departments. The biggest issue is that when it comes to actually playing the game, you're not going to be able to tell the difference between either setup as both are going to be extremely smooth anyway.

Tomb Raider sees a slight performance boost from the X99 setup, although it's not quite as large as we saw under Hitman Absolution and Sleeping Dogs. Again, though, you're not going to see a difference between playability as both setups offer some amazing FPS at this resolution under this extremely intensive game.
