Sleeping Dogs

Sleeping Dogs is an open-world game in which you play the role of Wei Shen, an undercover cop trying to take down the Triads from the inside. In the game, you have to fight your way up in the organization and take part in various criminal activities without blowing your cover. We tested Sleeping Dogs at two resolutions, with all in-game graphical options set to their maximum values with FXAA enabled.

There is a lot to see in these Sleeping Dogs results. First, the performance trend we've witnessed throughout most of this article continued here--the Radeon HD 7790 outpaced the Radeon HD 7770 and GeForce GTX 650, but trailed the higher-end cards when tested at 1920x1200.

With the resolution cranked up to 2560x1600, however, the cards with 1GB frame buffers, i.e. all of the cards except for the GeForce GTX 660, crater. 1GB of frame buffer memory simply isn't enough for cutting edge titles when running at ultra-high resolutions with high-quality in-game image quality settings.
