Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist is the sixth installment in this franchise. Released in mid August 2013 in the US, it is published and distributed by Ubisoft.

Again we see Sapphire's hopped up Tri-X cooled R9 280X Toxic coming close to the performance of a card that costs at least $300 more at both 1920x1080 and 5760x1080 resolutions.
In the percentile charts, again we see a relatively flat performance curve showing there are not a lot of frame time spikes that influence this curve. While the frame time chart may look a bit far ranging, the frame times at 1920x1080 fall within a 4ms range on the R9 280X Toxic. At 5760x1080, the gameplay experience looks much rougher but still manages to stay under 30ms with a 15ms range in frame times from the R9 280X Toxic.
