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.

Out results with the Sleeping Dogs benchmarks showed a similar performance trend to a few of the games/application mentioned earlier. Once again, the new Radeon R9 290 drops in somewhere between the GeForce GTX Titan and GeForce GTX 780, and a fair amount behind the Radeon R9 290X.

Generally speaking, there were no major issues to speak of in regard to frame times. The Radeon R9 290 did have a couple of seemingly significantly spikes, but even at the worst point, frame times were barely over 30ms.  For the vast majority of the test, frame pacing was fairly consistent.
