Hitman: Absolution

Hitman: Absolution sees a bit of an FPS jump, and the numbers continue to be solid at both 1680 x 1050, and 1920 x 1200. While the minimum is strong at 2560 x 1600, we would prefer that the average was up just a few more FPS. A slight detail drop could get us those few extra FPS we need.

Tomb Raider

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Tomb Raider sees a bit of a bump, and at the lowest resolution, the extra MHz we've achieved from the Sapphire R9 270X 2GB Vapor-X OC helps push the average into that 60 FPS realm. While moving up, we do see a nice FPS bump overall; however, the numbers are just a little too low in the average department to deliver a smooth gaming experience.
