We used the Adrenaline Sleeping Dogs Benchmark tool to benchmark this game title to make sure the benchmarking was consistent. We tested with ‘High’ quality setting at 1280×1024 and 1920×1024 resolutions.
Benchmark Results: The Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Vapor-X card lost to the GeForce GTX 680 at 1920×1080 and won and 2560×1600 with the Catalyst 12.9 beta drivers. With the AMD Catalyst 12.11 ‘Never Settle’ drivers installed the AMD Radeon HD 7970 was able to take a clean victory! The new drivers boosted the average FPS by 5% at 2560×1600 and 6% at 1920×1080! Very nice performance gains were seen in Sleeping Dogs thanks to the new drivers.
