Assassin's Creed III
Since the AC3 menu doesn't lend itself to screenshots, I'll just tell you that we tested at 1920x1080 with environment and shadow quality set to "very high" and texture and anti-aliasing quality set to "high." I understand that the "high" AA setting uses FXAA HQ with no multisampling. This game also supports Nvidia's TXAA, but Nvidia has gated off access to that mode from owners of Radeons and pre-Kepler GeForces, so we couldn't use it for comparative testing.
Well, look at that. We finally have a difference of note between Win8 and Win7. For whatever reason, the 7950 struggles more in AC3 in Windows 8. Then again, the 7950 doesn't perform especially well in this game in either version of Windows—not compared to the GTX 660 Ti.
