Our Settings for Battlefield 3
Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
BF3 is a good start for NVIDIA and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is able to beat the HD 7870 and even the HD 7950 Boost at 1680x1050 and 1080p resolutions. At 2560x1600 the HD 7950 and the GeForce GTX 660 Ti are basically a tie though, as they are at 5760x1080 for those of you with three displays.
Compared to the GTX 670, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti does see a 13-14% performance penalty thanks to the memory bandwidth changes.
