The A785GM-M kinda disappointed me in our Crysis and Far Cry 2 benchmarks. It did fine in the 3DMark tests and was comparable to the other boards we pitted against it, but I would have liked to have seen higher frame rates in the two real-world games we used for this portion of the review. We barely scrapped up 14 FPS in Far Cry, which is only a hair higher than the 790GX. We did see a 4FPS increase in Crysis, which is pretty decent, but the A785GM-M’s overall FPS scores really didn’t even make the game playable at very low resolutions.
