BF3 benchmark performance comparison.

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Ok, so there is alot of debate going on here about which GPU's perform better in BF3. New benches from Tom's and Techspot pretty much concur with every other bench posted on the net except HardOCP....


Click the links and read for yourselves...


At "high" settings without MSAA we see the 6970 pulling ahead of the 570(By 1 or 2 fps)and almost equal 580 at almost every resolution tested...

Nvidia

Techspot-High quality setting
AMD/Nvidia
http://www.techspot.com/review/458-battlefield-3-performance/page5.html


Here we see the same resolutions tested at the most demanding setting of "Ultra" with everything maxed out. Based on the reviews from these respective websites we see the 6970 lose at every resolution to both the 570 and 580, even at the vram hungry resolution of 2560x1600!eek.gif

Techspot-Ultra quality setting

Conclusion....

From Techspot:

While some things have changed since we tested the Battlefield 3 beta a month ago, overall the performance trends were very much the same.
Being blatant for a second, the Radeon performance both sucked and impressed. Both AMD and Nvidia supplied us with their own version of a "reviewers guide" for Battlefield 3 along with their latest drivers.

Nvidia didn’t bother to compare their products to AMD’s when putting together their reviewers guide. AMD, on the other hand, included extensive testing putting products from both companies head to head. That testing cast the Radeon series in a good light, however we found it odd that in virtually every test AMD used the Ultra settings but with MSAA completely disabled.



When we started testing on our own it became apparent why AMD did this. With MSAA enabled the performance sharply declines with Radeon boards and previous generation Nvidia products make AMD’s current generation hardware look foolish.
However disabling MSAA allows AMD to catch up to Nvidia, as you saw in our High quality 1680x1050, 1920x1200 and 2560x1600 tests.



...I think this should put to rest the perception that the 6970 is on par with the 580 at the most demanding settings. Eventhough the 6970 was a lot slower than the 570 at "Ultra" with MSAA enabled, I still feel that they are pretty much equal for the most part...


Also, how do you "Moah vram" apologists explain these bench results of how the 6970 lost to the vRam limited 570 at max "ultra" settings? Because according to the logic around here, the 6970 should win hands down because it has more memory at its disposal in a vRam hungry game like BF3....

I don't care either way, I get 55-70 fps @ 1920x1200 on max.

*Slightly CPU bottlenecked though, 95-100% cpu usage 75-90% gpu usage*

I've had crashing issues with BF3 on my SLI 580 setup but I think its the game itself. Otherwise my setup plays the game beautifully at full max. Haven't run a FRAPS session yet though since I'm still figuring out the video driver failure problems....

Why do people with Nvidia setups still use Fraps when Afterburner will display FPS as well as do video capturing

Why does ANYONE still use FRAPS would be the better question. O_o

I didn't realize there was anything wrong with FRAPS?
post #8 of 35
Fraps is not only for FPs thats not the reason you can obviosuly Record video,take pic and watnot

No the 580 1.5GB is still better than the 560Ti 2GB/6950 2GB, even with less VRAM as it's a more powerful GPU processor and more with more cores.
