The Far Cry franchise has been huge for Ubisoft (and Crytek before them) with massive sales but Assassins Creed 3, though more console focused, is no less impressive. Looking at the figures here it is clear that NVIDIA have their card/drivers working a lot better for this game. The AMD/Sapphire result is by no means bad and is completely smooth/playable however it just can't compete with the 660 Ti in terms of raw speed for AC3.

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