Sniper Elite 3
Sniper Elite is another AMD Mantle title which is a great looking PC game which performs fantastically on a wide range of configurations. This game poses no challenge to the R9 285 with an average framerate of over 90 frames per second and over 100 Frames per second with AMD's Mantle API at 1080p Ultra settings.
The R9 285 runs rings around the HD 7870 Tahiti in this test, showing that AMD have made some great changes in the Tonga GPU core, it is just a shame that these changes are not more apparent in other games.
Using AMD's Mantle again gives some performance increases, with a 9.1% gain at medium presets and a 7.2% gain at Ultra presets with the R9 285 GPU.
