AMD R9 290 Review (1600P, 4K and CF)

Sleeping Dogs started development as an original title, but was announced in 2009 as True Crime: Hong Kong, the third installment and a reboot of the True Crime series. As a result of the game’s high development budget and delays, it was canceled by Activision Blizzard in 2011. Six months later, it was announced that Square Enix had picked up the publishing rights to the game, but the game was renamed Sleeping Dogs in 2012 since Square Enix did not purchase the True Crime name rights.

We used the ‘HIGH’ graphics level setting at 4K- 3840×2160. This uses a mixture of high and extreme graphics settings, detailed above.
Sleeping Dogs 4K
The AMD R9 290 manages to match the GTX780 Lightning at 4K in average frames, and scores slightly more in the minimum frame rate. Those extra 2 frames however from 23-25 means that at the R9 290 is perfectly smooth.
