2560x1600 - High Quality
Incredibly, when running at 2560x1600 using the second highest quality preset and no anti-aliasing, Far Cry 3 almost managed to cripple the current-gen flagships, with the HD 7970GHz Edition and GTX 680 both averaging 46fps – enough for playable performance, but below the more desirable 60fps. Anything below the HD 7870 couldn't deliver playable results at 2560x1600, including the GTX 580 and HD 6970.
