Results: Grid 2 And Arma 3
Performance in Grid 2 scales opposite of Battlefield 4, favoring the GeForce GTX 780-based machine in six out of eight tests, and switching over to last quarter's configuration at the highest two settings. That box with the Radeon R9 290s in it appeared more processor-bound though, and we've noticed similar CPU-dependencies from AMD graphics cards in the past.
The current build’s GeForce GTX 780 cards in SLI make a clean sweep of Arma 3, contributing to an overall gaming lead of approximately 12%. Can the older machine and its hexa-core processor catch back up in the rest of our benchmark set, though?
