The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Our Skyrim run involved running around the town of Whiterun, starting from the city gates, all the way up to Dragonsreach, and then back down again.
Like BF3 and Bulletstorm, Skyrim's detail settings were maxed out. We selected the Ultra preset, which includes 8X MSAA, and then we enabled FXAA in the advanced options for good measure.
The 7850 Black makes a comeback in Skyrim, where it nips at the Radeon HD 7870's heels (and actually pulls off slightly lower 99th-percentile frame times). That leaves us with two games where the card behaves as it should, and two games where it's no better than the reference model. Hmm.
