Max Payne 3 Graphics and CPU Performance Tested, DirectX 11 Showcased
1920x1200 - Normal Quality
At 1920x1200 it takes the Radeon HD 6870 to exceed an average of 60fps. This card was a mere 2-3fps slower than the 5870 and 6950. The new Radeon HD 7850 averaged 69fps matching the old GeForce GTX 480. Meanwhile the GeForce GTX 570 and Radeon HD 6970 both scored 76fps, while the new 7950 was slightly faster with 77fps.
Towards the top of the food chain we have the GeForce GTX 580 with 84fps and the Radeon HD 7970 with 87fps. The GeForce GTX 670 was much faster with 101fps and the GTX 680 with 108fps.
Falling short of the 60fps target was the Radeon HD 6850 with 52fps and the GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 50fps. The GeForce GTX 560 (45fps) and the Radeon HD 7770 (43fps) provided playable performance at this resolution but there were moments of lag.
