Our Settings for Battlefield 3
Here is our testing run through the game, for your reference.
The HD 7850 definitely takes the performance edge from the HD 6950 and dominates the GTX 560 Ti. The GTX 570 is definitely faster at 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 but exhibits the same issue at 2560x1600 with the smaller frame buffer and Ultra image quality settings.
