nevermind my comment about 560 Ti, I see it in the benchmarks (high) but it is not on the main page list of cards (missed putting it there?) (yes, I used the search feature in my browser, no 560 to speak of)

Without any form of AA you can run it on ultra and get over 30fps on every map @ 1920x1080 easily (over 60 when close quarters). Depends on your cpu and if you OC your gpu though. i have mine at 940/2100 and its always above 40fps.

I run BF3 in 1920x1080 ultra MSAA4x with my X4 955+HD5770 and it works fine. Playable 30fps :D

Great article and I love that picture with a pile of graphics cards :D Just one obvious thing missing: WHERE ARE SLI 560 Tis??? I was kind of considering picking up a second card for this game... come on, I'm sick of Tom's ignoring that card so often.

Though I think my 560 Ti still doesn't need a pair if I tone down the settings a tiny bit :) Good to see that. And yet I hear the game looks great... kudos to DICE for optimizing the game nicely!

Also, 6950 kicked the 560 Ti nicely in this game :D

P.S. So the FX 8150 now has a Phenom name tag on it? :)

I actually don't even have two 560 Tis to show you, unfortunately.

Phenom? FX? Where? =)

Hey Chris, quick question, did you notice any micro-stuttering with the 6870 cards in crossfire? (kind of like that previous article that was up on toms a while ago). The performance of 6870x2 seems amazing for the price, and am really tempted to pick another one up for my system.

[citation][nom]aznshinobi[/nom]Great read, lovely to see a wide assortment tested, specially my 5850. Thanks for taking the time Chris, I'm sure it must've taken FOREVER to bench and swap all those cards.[/citation]

Very welcome, glad you enjoyed it. Didn't take forever, just four very long days ;-)

Okay how is the HD5850 better than the HD6850. The HD6850 has better memory clock speeds. I was able to play the game in 1080p and AAx2 and all but two on ultra high, and i was getting 35fps average. I am calling Bulls**t on this one.

What? You don't have two 560 Tis??? That's blasphemy! :D

Phenom FX? Why, right here....

E6700 non OC with 460 GTX gets no huge FPS drops mostly in the 40fps range.

I'm sure I'd get +10 fps if I got some new fancy CPU but looks like I'll do just fine for now until I get some money!
