Benchmarks Real world tests of Radeon HD 7850 vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost

Passmark Industry standard benchmark for overall graphics card performance

3DMark 11, as the name might suggest, makes use of the Microsoft DirectX 11 API and puts every feature of it to use, creating astonishingly realistic visuals.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost | by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2013)

3DMark Vantage (Texture Fill) Industry standard benchmark that tests DirectX performance

3DMark 11 Graphics Industry standard benchmark that tests DirectX 11 GPU performance

Crysis: Warhead (2013) 1920x1080 - Enthusiast Quality + 4xAA

Unfortunately, it leaves a less than satisfactory impression, which makes it a candidate that surpasses Crysis for highest hardware requirements.
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost | by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2013)

Batman: Arkham City 1920x1200 - Extreme quality + FXAA-HIGH

endeavour. Batman: Arkham City uses the same Unreal Engine by Epic as Batman: Arkham Asylum, but it has, thanks to the engine's modularity, been overhauled and equipped with the latest technologies, including a graphics engine that takes advantage of DirectX 11.

Gaming noise is much improved too, which should result in a really quiet gaming experience.

Awesome comparison. Helped me a lot for buying the card.
Great to hear it Brandon, thanks :)
This website has saved me a lot of money and the game examples are very helpful. Great Job :)
Thanks Pat :D
This website is so COOOOL! XD
We aggregate data from around the web (manufacturers, reviewers, amazon, etc.) so there's no one specific author for a review.
Is there a author for this review? thanks
