MSI GTX780 Lightning 3GB Graphics Card Review

Max Payne 3 is a third-person shooter in which the player assumes the role of its titular character, Max Payne. Max Payne 3 features a similar over-the-shoulder camera as its predecessors, with the addition of a cover mechanic, while also retaining much of the same run-and-gun style of gameplay. Max Payne 3 also marks the return of bullet-time in action sequences, for which the franchise is notable.

In bullet-time it is possible to see every bullet strike an enemy in detail. New to the series is a “Last Stand” mechanic, which gives the player a grace period after losing all health during which time the player may kill the enemy that wounded them in order to continue playing, however this mechanic is only usable if the player has one or more bottles of painkillers in their possession.

We test the game today at 1920×1080 and 2560×1600 resolutions. At our chosen graphics settings, the game demands 1270MB (1920) and 1848MB (2560) of memory.

The MSI GTX780 Lightning 3GB scores better than the GTX Titan at this resolution, averaging 81 frames per second.

When we increase the resolution, the frame rates are still perfectly smooth and even the Sapphire HD7970 6GB Toxic holds a steady frame rate above 30 at all times. The Lightning 3GB has the slight edge again.
