Benchmark Results: Battlefield 3 And DiRT 3

System Builder Marathon, August 2012: $2000 Performance PC

Battlefield 3’s Medium preset appears somewhat CPU-limited, and last quarter's more powerful GeForce GTX 680 gains ground as we push higher resolutions.

Performance differences spread out a little at the game’s Ultra quality preset, though this month's system starts getting a little choppy at 2560x1600.

The new machine establishes an average performance lead under DiRT 3’s High quality settings, even though its average is pulled down a little by mediocre 2560x1600 results. The game’s Ultra quality preset pushes this quarter's weaker graphics further down the chart.
