In BF3, MSI's R9 270X Hawk delivers FPS results close to those of the GTX 760 and improves upon the FPS delivered by the HD 7870.
The percentile charts show that the R9 270X Hawk has a few more outliers than the HD 7870 once you get close to the 80th percentile range at 1920x1080, but settles down with an overall tighter spread at 5760x1080. Although the frame times look all over the board, the vast majority of the results are within a very tight 4ms range top to bottom. The end result is smooth gameplay using the Ultra Preset!
