Far Cry 2 & Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Results

Far Cry 2 Results

Starting off with the older DX10 Far Cry 2, none of our cards had any problems, with everyone exceeding 140 FPS. While the difference in actual user experience was indiscernible, the Devil 13 did slightly trail the GTX 690 on all settings by about 5% at 1920 x 1200 and 1% at 2560 x 1600. 



Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Results

DX11 game Battlefield: Bad Company is a useful test of a GPU’s geometry shading power. Interestingly, at the lower 1920 x 1200 resolution, the Devil 13 and HD 7970 CrossFireX config were about 1% ahead of NVIDIA, however that changed at the 2560 x 1600 resolution, where both AMD-based setups fell behind, with the Devil 13 losing to the NVIDIA GTX 690 by 5% and the GTX 680 SLI config by 6.5%.
