Crysis 2 & Batman: Arkham City Results

Crysis 2 Results

The Radeon HD 7950 managed to stay ahead marginally of the GeForce GTX 580, whereas the the lead Radeon HD 7970 actually managed over 40% performance gain (apart from the 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution). And at the highrest resolution, it wasn't much behind the GeForce GTX 590. However, frame rates at that resolution dipped below the 30fps mark, leaving only the Radeon HD 6990 as capable of handling the Crysis 2 benchmark at the highest settings.


Batman: Arkham City Results

The performance scores of both Radeon HD 7970 and 7950 were consistent regardless of the resolution settings, which we found quite odd. Whatever the case, while the newcomers improve their standings by a fair bit, they are still outrun by the GeForce cards which so far have had a track record at tackling DX 11 games better.
