Sniper Elite V2

Version and / or Patch Used: Standalone Benchmark

Sniper Elite V2, like a couple of other games, sees the Sapphire R9 280 Dual-X 3GB OC get a nice little performance boost over the reference R9 270 2GB. You can see again, though, that while we do see a nice bit of an increase, we do fall short of that 60 FPS number we want at the highest resolution.

Sleeping Dogs

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Sleeping Dogs sees playable FPS at all resolutions, and at 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050, you can see a slight performance increase over the R9 270X 2GB. At the highest resolutions, though, we drop back a few FPS. Considering we're just in the 60 FPS range, this isn't the kind of place we like to be losing FPS.
