Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
While at 1680x1050 the NVIDIA GTXC 580 gets the better of the new Radeon HD 7950, as we climb up the resolution ladder the AMD offering does better. In fact, at 1920x1080 the two cards are basically tied in performance while the HD 7950 takes the ever so slight lead at 2560x1600. Compared to Radeon HD 7970 the new 1,792 stream processor card is about 20% slower and the HD 6970 is another 30% slower than that.
