aren't the 7870 just a die shrunk of the 6970 ??

Agreed, but he talks about that in the article and about how it gives a relative comparison point.

The video clip above demonstrates the short sequence used for benchmarking. It's not the most demanding segment of Battlefield 3 I've seen thus far, nor is it necessarily the most representative of single-player game play (and certainly not multi-player). However, after a couple of hundred runs, I know it's consistent.

That makes this system precise, but not necessarily accurate, so its validity could certainly be called into question. The challenge in a game like this, which doesn't offer the timedemo functionality purportedly made available to IHVs, but not press, is that nailing both precision and accuracy then becomes very difficult due to Fraps-based testing of actual sequences. While not perfect, what we have here is, at the very least, great for relativistic comparisons.

but the nature of single player isnt the same


less events at the same time... everything is staged

and all of these are made to limit the power needed to pull good framerates while keeping a very high image quality


i can run ultra with everthing maxed out for single player .. but i can't on b2k maps not even close at all

I bit the bullet and bought a limited edition physical copy off of ebay (from a reputable seller) for $45. Not the greatest of deals but better than any I could find that wasn't sketchy. Hopefully I'll be fraggin' n00bs by monday of next week.

the key was most likely allready registered to his account so the copy is now useless

Nah it's a new (sealed) copy. The seller has 23K positive reviews and has sold multiples of these recently, so I'm fairly confident I won't get burned. Regardless, I have eBay to back me up. Now hopefully I won't have to hear you say I told you so. ;p

I have issues! Mouse/game freezing issues, to be exact. The game will freeze for a second or 2 and then continue on. It's getting me killed far too often. I notice the mouse pointer doing it occasionally on the desktop at well. Anyone else run into this? I've update my g500 drivers, nvidia driver (latest WHQL), MB BIOS, and tried every USB port and it still happens.

Have you tried another mouse?

The only other mouse I have is incredibly cheap, and it's impossible to game with.

Well, you said it happens on the desktop occasionally, so start with ruling out the mouse is the best way to proceed imo.
