Battlefield 3 – SLI
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.
For our multi-GPU testing I have removed the GTX 770 in order to see the scaling of the GTX 760 with SLI as well as to compare it to the results of the HD 7950 and HD 7870 in CrossFire. Obviously we have documented our thoughts on CrossFire many times and the trend continues here; runt frames dramatically drop the perceived frame rate of CrossFire solutions. Because of that, the “real world” testing indicates that the 7950 Boost in CrossFire is only performing as well as the single GTX 760 while the NVIDIA SLI scaling shows a healthy boost of nearly 80% at 2560×1440.
