Hitman sees a little bit of positive movement across the board when comparing the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC against the reference R9 270X 2GB. We're not 100 percent happy with the 53 FPS average at the highest resolutions, but the strong 43 FPS minimum does help ease the pain a bit. Because of the strong minimum, we would say that this would be playable for the most part. We would, of course, prefer a couple of extra FPS on the average end, though.

At 1680 x 1050, you can see the added performance from the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC helps make our game playable. While we're short of that 60 FPS average, like just mentioned above, the strong minimum FPS makes us feel comfortable with what we're dealing with here today.
