MSI R7870 HAWK Review and CrossFire Performance: AMD HD 7870 on Steroids
Results: Battlefield 3
Based on the Frostbite 2 engine, Battlefield 3 has redefined high end graphics for the DX 11 generation. Settings were set at Ultra level with 4X MSAA and 16X AF with HBOA enabled. A manual runthrough was captured by FRAPS through the first half of the second mission.
This is a title that scales very nicely in CrossFire, and it does play very smoothly as well. We see the R7950 take a pretty hefty lead over the R7870, but the Hawk does stay within spitting distance. The 7850 is just a bit outclassed here.
