Assassinís Creed III (DX11)



The third iteration of the Assassinís Creed franchise is the first to make extensive use of DX11 graphics technology. In this benchmark sequence, we proceed through a run-through of the Boston area which features plenty of NPCs, distant views and high levels of detail.



In a result which is sure to please AMD fans, the HD 7790 is able to eke out a win in a typically NVIDIA-centric title. It also boasts some impressive performance when compared against the HD 7770 GHz Edition.


Crysis 3 (DX11)



Simply put, Crysis 3 is one of the best looking PC games of all time and it demands a heavy system investment before even trying to enable higher detail settings. Our benchmark sequence for this one replicates a typical gameplay condition within the New York dome and consists of a run-through interspersed with a few explosions for good measure Due to the hefty system resource needs of this game, post-process FXAA was used in the place of MSAA.



Although Crysis 3 is one of the most graphics intensive games current available, the HD 7790 handles it without too much of a problem on high detail settings, though it does dip below the 30 fps mark every now and then. More importantly, it thoroughly beats the GTX 650 Ti in the minimum framerate department and leaves the HD 7770 GHz Edition behind in the dust.
