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.

For a $169 card, the GTX 650 Ti Boost posts some remarkable results in Assassinís Creed III with performance thatís nearly 10% ahead of the $185 HD 7850 2GB. Meanwhile, its minimums nearly match those seen on a GTX 660.

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.

Crysis 3 shows very much the same results we saw in Assassinís Creed III with the GTX 650 Ti Boost showing the ability to remain well ahead of the HD 7850 which AMDís new HD 7790 is nothing but a distant memory.
