Our Settings for Far Cry 3
Once again we find these frame rates to be on the low side because of our higher image quality settings (we are using the same settings as we did for our other Frame Rating stories) but there are no differences between the FRAPS and Frame Rating results. The GTX 650 Ti BOOST and the Radeon HD 7850 run even with each other again followed by the HD 7790 which is followed by the original GTX 650 Ti.
No big issues with frame times on Far Cry 3 though we do see a couple of spikes on the two AMD cards (HD 7790 and HD 7850) that don't really appear on the GTX cards.
The GTX 650 Ti BOOST runs just ahead of the HD 7850 with the GTX 650 Ti coming in last place again. The HD 7790 splits the difference.
Not only is the GTX 650 Ti BOOST faster in average frame rates, it also exhibits the least frame time variance of all four cards tested.
