Our Settings for Battlefield 3
Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
In BF3 the new HD 7790 is definitely running faster than the GTX 650 Ti but falls pretty far back from the HD 7850 based on the larger, Pitcairn GPU. With a total average frame rate of about 36 FPS on the 650 Ti, 41 on the HD 7790 and 48 on the HD 7850, the improved performance on the HD 7790 definitely makes playing BF3 on Ultra at 1080p a more enjoyable experience.
