Even with a 100 FPS cap in our Battlefield testing, at 1600×1200 the BFG GX2 card takes a noticeable performance advantage. While the average frame rate is only 5 or so faster, the minimum frame rate is 14 FPS faster than the next highest single video card. The scores at 2048×1536 are even more impressive as the GX2 easily takes the top spot for a single video card.
