BattleField: Bad Company 2 (DX11)

To benchmark BF: BC2 we used a five minute stretch of gameplay starting from the second checkpoint (after the helicopter takes off) of the second single player mission up until your battle with the tank commences. Framerates are recorded with FRAPS.

1680 x 1050

1920 x 1200

2560 x 1600

We were almost about to put a ďfailĒ across every column for ATIís cards due to a quickly alternating / flashing line problem that reared its head in some levels (particularly when there was fog or dust blowing around) but since it did not render the game unplayable, we went forward.

Once again we see particularly good scaling with the GTX 470 but it is soundly beaten in the average framerate department by two HD 5850 cards. The fact of the matter is that in this game at least ATIís cards show nearly unbelievable scaling even though the GTX 470s end up edging out a win in the minimum framerates at 2560 / 4xAA.
