Taking us into the real world gaming tests is Far Cry 3 and when both the GTX 660 Ti and 7870 XT are overclocked to their limit we get a result which is very close indeed. At 1920×1080 with maximum detail both cards average 53fps with the NVIDIA edging ahead on min-fps and the AMD based card on maximum.

Also, here is an example of how the game looks at our initial tested settings.
