Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
Going head to head with the GTX 660, the Radeon R9 270X looks like a winner yet again besting the GeForce option at both 1920×1080 and 2560×1440. Yes, the GTX 760 is faster but that card runs 25% higher than the updated Radeon option.
Well they can't all be winners, right? The Radeon R7 260X is handled well by the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB card that maintains a healthy lead at 1080p.
