NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB Video Card Review
Battlefield 3 (BF3) is a first-person shooter video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. The game was released in North America on October 25, 2011 and in Europe on October 28, 2011. It does not support versions of Windows prior to Windows Vista as the game only supports DirectX 10 and 11. It is a direct sequel to 2005’s Battlefield 2, and the eleventh installment in the Battlefield franchise. The game sold 5 million copies in its first week of release and the PC download is exclusive to EA’s Origin platform, through which PC users also authenticate when connecting to the game.
Battlefield 3 debuts the new Frostbite 2 engine. This updated Frostbite engine can realistically portray the destruction of buildings and scenery to a greater extent than previous versions. Unlike previous iterations, the new version can also support dense urban areas. Battlefield 3 uses a new type of character animation technology called ANT. ANT technology is used in EA Sports games, such as FIFA, but for Battlefield 3 is adapted to create a more realistic soldier, with the ability to transition into cover and turn the head before the body.
Benchmark Results: The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti was found to be ~17% faster than the GeForce GTX 780 and ~8% faster than the GeForce GTX Titan at 1920×1080. It also topped our performance chart and was the fastest graphics card that we have ever tested on BF3 with Ultra settings at 5760×1080, 2560×1600 and 1920×1080. The new GeForce GTX 780 Ti was 4% faster than the AMD Radeon R9 290X at 5760×1080 and 13.7% faster at 1920×1080. It looks like enabling all those cores and bumping up the CUDA core and memory clock speeds was enough for NVIDIA to get back on top of the charts!
