Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3:

We played single player campaign firefight in the square with Ultra preset at 1920x1080 and 3240x1920 (bezel compensated, Eyefinity) resolution.

Battlefield 3 in-game v-sync operates at 60Hz, ignoring our display's 120Hz refresh rate but that's ok because a single card isn't powerful enough to get to 120FPS for Ultra 1080P. For CrossfireX we used RadeonPro frame rate limiting (120FPS).

Minimum, Apparent Average and Maximum FPS:

1080P

Eyefinity

Longest (slowest), mean and shortest (fastest) frame render time (milliseconds):
