Our Settings for Battlefield 3
Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
In Battlefield 3, the new GTX 670 is about 10-11% slower than that GTX 680 which bodes well for the card as it is 25% less expensive as well. Perhaps more interestingly is that in 1680×1050 and 1920×1080 tests the GTX 670 is not only faster than the HD 7950 (25% in fact) but it is also faster than the HD 7970! Only at the 2560×1600 resolution does the HD 7970 match the performance of the GTX 670.
