Hitman Absolution numbers look good across the board with the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC. You can see, at the lower resolutions, we hit the same FPS wall that is present on the models above. Only at 2560x1600 does the card start to fall backwards. Fortunately, you can see the overall FPS is very solid, with a good minimum and average being seen.

Tomb Raider performance on the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC is solid at both 1920x1200 and 1680x1050. It's only at 2560x1600 that we fall below playable FPS numbers. Looking above, you can see even the R9 290 and R9 290X struggle to offer playable FPS at this resolution.
