AMD Edges Slightly in Star Wars: Battlefront Benchmark
It seems that DICE has done a fantastic job with optimizing their upcoming game Star Wars: Battlefront for the PC.
A performance assessment and benchmark test has just been revealed by Guru 3D for the game, and apparently it favors AMD slightly more than Nvidia.
Carried out on three different resolutions and on some of the best GPUs money can buy, Star Wars: Battlefront gives slightly better frame-rates on higher resolutions (WHQD and Ultra HD) on AMD’s flagship Fury X than it does on Nvidia’s competitor, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
Across the board, lesser priced AMD cards continue to outperform competitor Nvidia GPUs, with the R9 290 outperforming the highly popular GTX 970 by an impressive 9 frames on WHQD (2560×1440), and a somewhat similar difference on Ultra HD (3840×2160) resolution.
Star Wars: Battlefront uses the impressive Frotbite 3.0 engine to render its graphics. It’s not a surprise that AMD has an edge overall, as this very engine was used by AMD to create their low-level Mantle API for the PC.
The good news though is that despite the slight favoritism by the engine, the game runs exceptionally across all current-generation mid to high level GPUs, irrespective of which brand you would have.
Star Wars: Battlefront is an online multiplayer first-person shooter in development by DICE, and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 17 this year.
