Our PC videos of Sleeping Dogs

Our PC videos of Sleeping Dogs

Even though Sleeping Dogs is clearly not perfect, it still remains the nice surprise we expected from it before its release. With its strong emphasis on atmosphere and a PC version which looks even better, we figured you'd be willing to see more of the game in 1080p and 60 fps. Enjoy our PC videos, there should be more than enough for you guys to be satisfied.

Hardware used to capture these videos:
- Intel i7 2700K @ 4.8 GHz
- 16 Go DDR3 1600 MHz
- 2x NVidia GTX 680 SLI
Capture software: Mirillis Action!

Loving the game so far! Most fun open world game since JC2 and RDR imo. Sleeper hit of the year for sure!

why is there slowdown in the HQ video stream and not the LQ video stream?

What do you mean by slowdown ?
Is it laggy ? Or is the video (and sound) playing like it was slowed-down ?

Does it happen in every videos ? If not, in which one ?
I tried some and HQ and LQ play fine here.

it happens in most GS videos that are HQ 60 FPS. The LQ stream runs at perfect 60 FPS while the HQ stream stutters a lot.

So the problem is your PC, or the browser you use and the Flash version it uses.

What do you use ? And what is your CPU and graphic card ?

just checked, seems to be working fine now.

How much $$ did you spend on that rig btw? I might get something similar once I get a job.

Around 2500€ in French online retailers, but that's just the computer case and all its components, I kept everything else.

If you want the details :

Case : Antec Eleven Hundred
Power unit : OCZ ZX Series 850W
Motherboard : Asus SABERTOOTH Z77
CPU : Intel Core i7 2700K
RAM : G.Skill Kit Extreme3 4 x 4 GB PC12800 Sniper CAS 9
GPU : 2x Gainward GTX 680
SSD : Samsung Serie 830 128 GB
CPU Cooler : Noctua NH-U12P SE2
HDD : 2x Seagate Barracuda Green 2 TB

And some low speed fans for a better air flow in the case, a Blu-Ray drive.
I also kept some HDDs and SSD from my "older" case.

  • Megido
    Megido But in a game like this, where 60 fpa isnt essential, id rather have it look great and run at 30. But thats just me. (2 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @droezelke: Depends on what hardware you have, no? I have a computer thats 2 years old, and i can still almost max a game out with above 30. Thats fine by me. Couls lower the wettings to get 60 easy. (2 Hours ago)
