Performance: As for the performance, it’s clear that both versions have there fair share of screen tearing, especially if the heat of battle. On the positive side of things both versions managed to maintain a solid 30FPS throughout. Again, time has proven that Beta builds usually have last minute optimizations before going gold so we expect some improvements with the screen tearing. Below are the stats our analyzer captured in BF3 Beta.

*To ensure color accuracy from the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U output, the PlayStation 3 has RGB Full Range set to "Full" and Super White "On", and the Xbox 360 has Reference Level set to "Expanded" and HDMI Color Space set to "RGB". Our capture card we have captured segments from the AVS HD 709 . Blu-ray, HD DVD, & MP4 Calibration suite.

As you will see, each system matches each other at the SOURCE LEVEL. No contrast or gamma settings are manipulated before or after capturing our images/videos. We strongly believe that these types of corrections are done on a individuals preference and should not be adjusted by us. Finally, washed out looking images that are due to contrast or gamma differences will not have any influence on our final verdicts.
