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.
NVIDIA likes Battlefield 3, and this card posts some terrific scores. The highly overclocked R7870 comes very close to the R7950, but the latter card certainly has a much greater overall potential for performance when overclocked. Something very interested did pop up about the GTX 670 though, but that discussion will be held in the Overclocking section of this review.
