Results: Battlefield 3

Based on the Frostbite 2 engine, Battlefield 3 has redefined high end graphics for the DX 11 generation. Settings were set at Ultra level with 4X MSAA and 16X AF with HBOA enabled. A manual runthrough was captured by FRAPS through the first half of the second mission.

Even at the lower resolutions we see some nice separation here, as BF3 is not nearly as CPU bound as Skyrim. At the lowest res we see the HD 7870 barely trailing the N580 GTX, but take it up a notch we see the 7870 come out slightly ahead. The 7850 stays pretty competitive, and even at 2560 is able to provide an average framerate of 40 fps and does not drop below 31.
