Battlefield 3 (DirectX 11)
Battlefield 3™ leaps ahead of its time with the power of Frostbite 2, DICE's new cutting-edge game engine. This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built, delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and character animation utilizing ANT technology as seen in the latest EA SPORTS™ games.
Frostbite 2 now enables deferred shading, dynamic global illumination and new streaming architecture. Sounds like tech talk? Play the game and experience the difference!
Our Settings for Battlefield 3
Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
Overall the GTX 680 SLI and the GTX 780 SLI results are very similar in Battlefield 3 with very little frame time variance at any resolution. The SLI scaling results from a single card to dual GPUs are solid once again – we expected no less from this GPU we are already very familiar with. The same cannot be said of the HD 7970 GHz Edition of course – there are still massive scaling problems with CrossFire and varying frame times.
