Sniper Elite V2 looks great across the board, and you can see our heavily overclocked Sapphire R9 290X Vapor-X OC manages to come out ahead of the pack at all resolutions. These older games are really no issue for these higher-end offerings.

While the Sapphire R9 290X Vapor-X OC doesn't manage to pull out the win at all resolutions here, you can see it does manage some extremely strong FPS across the board. At the highest resolution, we see that we're able to score a massively smooth 127 FPS average. This is fantastic news for those new 144Hz 2560x1440 screens.
