Results: Battlefield 4 And Far Cry 3

System Builder Marathon, Q1 2014: The $2400 People’s Choice PC

Since the current machine features the more advanced CPU architecture, I can only credit the last quarter's Radeon R9 290 graphics card for superior performance in the AMD-sponsored Battlefield 4. The new machine’s GeForce GTX 780s achieve a win at our highest two settings, but two wins in eight tests isn’t going to push this configuration into the winner’s circle.

Far Cry 3 shows a far stronger preference for the current build’s Nvidia graphics cards. The GeForce cards don't lead as much at our highest setting, but the fact that they're in front for the entirely of this game does exonerate the enthusiasts who suggested that I use them in my Q1 2014 build.
