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.
This looks better! We again see the cards shaking out as expected. The R7950 is quite a bit behind the R7970 Lightning, but I would imagine with a bit of tweaking that difference can be dropped significantly. It is interesting to see how close the R7950 is in price to the R7870. I honestly would not even consider getting a 7870 of any stripe unless it was a good $70 cheaper than the HD 7950 cards.
