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.

Sleeping Dogs ran very well on the new Radeon R9 290X, as the card put up some of the best minimum and average frame rates we have seen in this game to date, besting the GeForce GTX 780 and GTX Titan in the process.

The Radeon R9 290X, however, did show some significant spikes in frametime in this game as well, but the spikes typically stayed below the 30ms mark, which wasn't immediately perceptible during the benchmark runs.
