Sapphire R9 280X Toxic Testing:
Battlefield 3 is a first-person shooter developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. Battlefield 3 uses the Frostbite 2 game engine and is the direct successor to Battlefield 2. Released in North America on October 25, 2011, the game supports DirectX 10 and 11.
- Game settings = Ultra
In BF3, Sapphire's R9 280X Toxic again is within 5FPS of the GTX 780 at both resolutions, making a very strong case for itself. This card can handle the ultra preset at both resolutions with no problem.
What the results show us is that you get smooth gameplay from the R9 280 Toxic with both a single and three screen Eyefinity setup. The frame time variances look huge in the charts, but in reality are within a 5ms range at 1920x1080 and a 12ms range at 5760x1080. In the end you get fluid gameplay.
