Sniper Elite V2 numbers are solid across the board, and you can see that thanks to the overclock we achieved on the Sapphire R9 285 2GB ITX Compact, we're able to break the 60 FPS barrier at the highest resolution. These are the times when we really appreciate overclocking, as we see our game move from what we would say is unplayable, to something playable.

 

 

Sleeping Dogs

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Sleeping Dogs sees both some strong gains from the overclock, and just strong numbers overall. At the highest resolution, you can see thanks to the extra MHz on the Sapphire R9 285 2GB ITX Compact, we manage to score an increase of 10% in the overall average FPS.
