Sapphire R9 290X Vapor X 8GB Crossfire Review

Watch Dogs is an action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective. Players complete missions—linear scenarios with set objectives—to progress through the story.

We experienced significant driver issues when running two Titan Z cards in SLi. In the title screens the frame rate would be high, but the actual game engine would suffer compared to a single Titan Z card – which ran very well.
