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.

The GeForce GTX 770 cards put up higher frame rates than the GeForce GTX 680 in the Sleeping Dogs benchmark, but traded positions with the Radeon HD 7970 depending on the resolution. To be more specific, the reference GeForce GTX 770 trailed the Radeon HD 7970 at both resolutions, but the factory overclocked 770s from Gigabyte and MSI were able to pull ahead of the Radeon at 1920x1200 and finished just behind the Radeon at 2560x1600.

Save for one major event with the Radeon HD 7970, there were no real issues with frametimes to report in this game with the single card configurations. The GeForce GTX 780 delivered the consistently lowest frame time / highest frame rates, followed by the GeForce GTX 770s and Radeon HD 7970, and finally the GTX 680.

The same hold true in the multi-GPU tests, though obviously the Radeon HD 7970 CrossFire configuration's frametimes are far more inconsistent than the SLI setup.
