Benchmarks: Sleeping Dogs, Battlefield 4

Sleeping Dogs is a particularly GPU-intensive game and yet we were able to play at 1920x1200 using the maximum in-game quality settings with a R7 265 at 30fps.

The GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti along with the R7 260X will all require lower settings in order to deliver playable performance.

The R9 280 and GTX 760 both delivered highly playable performance, though the Radeon was 2% faster.

The R9 290 was 21% faster than the GTX 770, while the R9 290X was 3% faster than the GTX 970.

Again we were surprised to find that the R7 265 was able to deliver 30fps at 1920x1200 in Battlefield 4. The R7 265 was 30% faster than the GTX 750 Ti, the R9 280 was 14% faster than the GTX 760, and the R9 290 beat the GTX 770 by a 34% margin.

Surprisingly, the R9 290X had no trouble beating the GTX 970 as it was 17% faster and just 3% slower than the GTX 980.
