2560x1600 - Gaming Performance

At 2560x1600 most of the budget GPUs are unable to deliver desirable frame rates, though it doesn't take a monster graphics card to achieve playable performance either. The GTX 460 and 560 still crossed the 30fps threshold while the HD 6850 managed 43fps. The GTX 560 Ti, GTX 470 and HD 6870 rendered 50fps while anything on par with the HD 5870 will average more than 55fps. The GTX 580 was the only card to exceed 60fps.

The performance margin between MW3 and MW2 was further exacerbated at 2560x1600. The Radeon HD 6950 was 21% faster in MW3 while the GTX 570 scored 9% better.
