Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Here, we played through the beginning of the game's first real mission (at the Sarif Manufacturing plant) using a mix of stealthy sneaking and gunplay. Human Revolution allows for and rewards both approaches.
Since this game isn't terribly demanding, we maxed out detail settings and cranked up FXAA antialiasing to "High" at 1080p.
Looks like a repeat of Battlefield 3 results. The AMD solutions are clustered together, and the Nvidia cards suffer from entirely too many latency spikes.
It's like déjà vu all over again. The Radeon HD 6850 and 7770 rise to the top overall, the 7750 fails to catch up to the 5770 (though, to be fair, it does come closer than in Battlefield 3), and the Nvidia solutions are at a disadvantage because of their numerous frame latency spikes.
