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.
This game is still a system killer at these maximised settings – especially at 2560×1600. We test at both 1920×1080 and 2560×1600 resolutions.

Both Nvidia boards score identically at 2560×1600 with image quality settings on maximum. The Sapphire HD7970 6GB Toxic maintains the better minimum frame rate at these settings, although this engine is well known to be optimised for AMD graphics cards.
