Hitman Absolution

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Hitman: Absolution numbers are great. Just like we saw under Sniper Elite V2, at the highest resolution we manage to break into the 60 FPS barrier again, something that the R9 280 3GB and R9 285 2GB couldn't do out of the box. This is exactly the kind of performance gains we like to see when throwing overclocking into the mix.

Tomb Raider

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Tomb Raider also manages to see some great performance gains, and while we fall short of that 60 FPS number at 1920 x 1200, because of the strong minimum and the fact we're only 2 FPS off that number, we'd say you're not going to have an issue getting a smooth gaming experience. On the other hand, the R9 280 3GB and R9 285 2GB score averages of 56 and 55 FPS respectively.
