Results: Grid 2 And Far Cry 3
Like most of Codemasters' racing titles, Grid 2 is platform-limited at all but the highest resolutions and detail levels. In fact, it's so sensitive to memory bandwidth that the new build suffers a significant loss at default settings when the High-quality preset is used. Stepping up to the Ultra setting with 8x MSAA enabled transfers the limitation to the graphics subsystem. The GeForce GTX 780 Ti shines, but even a Radeon R9 290 averages more than 50 FPS on a three-monitor, 5760x1080 setup after a bit of overclocking.
Far Cry 3
More than any other game in our benchmark suite, Far Cry 3 leans heavily on graphics cards and is far less dependent on the host processor. At Ultra quality detail settings, the GeForce makes its strongest case against the Radeon.
