Looks like my Gtx 580 card will handle Ultra settings nicely :) Amd cards seem to be able to run Bf3 real well but bogs down on Ultra settings. Maybe a fix on next driver update.

Petey you should try the newer drivers as there's been a lot of tweaking for BF3. You can always roll back to 11.4

Interesting results though. Amd cards seem to throttle Nvidia cards on high settings in single and dual setups but suffer badly in ultra settings. It states in the benchmark however that Ultra settings have AA and ASF enabled automaticaly which would explain alot since AMD cards havn't faired well with those filters. It also states that AMD cards have been unstable throughout the tests. But I believe a driver update will fix the issue. All in all though both types of cards seem to run Bf3 well. Im stoked that a single high end Nvidia card can run Ultra settings well. Not having to pay for another card for an Sli setup is good news. Results for Cpu types didnt vary much at all. Any quad core will suffice.
