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 are using the highest possible image quality settings at 1080p, including the high resolution texture pack.
At these settings this is a very demanding game, however all of the discrete solutions on test today are able to maintain playable frame rates, except the GTX660 which suffers a little, dropping the frame rate below 25 in some of the environments.
The MSI GTX670 Power Edition claims top spot, averaging 49 frames per second. At reference 980mhz clocks, the GTX760 matches the overclocked eVGA GTX660 Ti. When we push the core to 1,180mhz, the GTX760 almost matches the class leading MSI GTX670 Power Edition.
