Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
At 1080p, the GTX Titan is the fastest card in BF3 but is followed closely by both the GTX 780 and the new R9 290X.
At the higher resolution, the GTX Titan and the R9 290X are pretty much performing neck and neck with the GTX 780 just a small margin behind in terms of averages frame rate. The R9 280X is quite a bit slower than the other three options but at a large price advantage.
