One of the most anticipated shooter of this year, the Battlefield 1 is scheduled for worldwide release next week. The First Game Trial is now available for Xbox One gamers and PC subscribers of the EA Access and Origin Access, that allows 10 hours of access to the game, including 5 multiplayer maps and first 2 single player campaign missions.
Today we have the DirectX 12 benchmarks of the Battlefield 1 from both the camps, thanks to Hardware.info for testing the game with 13 different graphics cards on 1920×1080, 2560×1440 and the ultra HD 3840×22160 with Ultra settings.
These benchmarks show the lead of GeForce GTX 1080 against all the graphics cards, including AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury X in all the three display resolutions. Starting with the Full HD 1080, any GPU above the GTX 780 and RX 470 is capable of delivering frame rates above 60. Even the 4 years old R9 280X manages to get fps between 50 to 55 on ultra settings, and if overclocked a bit, can further push it around 60FPS as well.
Interestingly, the GTX 780 which used to be a performance leader and more costly during its time is now delivering around 61 fps on average, just a bit more than the old Tahiti-based R9 280X. Even the R9 290 delivers higher frame rates than the popular GTX 970, while the R9 390X just outperformed the GTX 980 Ti with a very close margin. We can say that the Battlefield 1 on DirectX 12 shows the best of the AMD as compared with the GPUs of NVIDIA, considering the release time frame and the price.
While at the 1440p, GTX 1080 again tops the list with having around 99 frame rates, following the R9 Fury X with a difference of 14 to 15 fps. The R9 390X shows the lead against GTX 980 Ti with the average of 3 to 4 fps, while the RX 480, R9 290 and GTX 1060 falls under the camp of 60 frames. Both the R9 280X and GTX 780 are struggling to reach the 50 fps mark at 1440p on Ultra settings.
And lastly, at the UHD 4K resolution, the GTX 1080 could manage to deliver only 57 fps, and the R9 Fury X with about 50 fps. This time, the R9 390X losses its lead against the GTX 980 Ti by managing to get around 43 fps while the GTX 980 Ti and GTX 1070 manage to reach near 47 fps on average. The RX 470, RX 480, R9 290 and GTX 1060 fall under the camp of 30 to 35 fps while the remaining ones fail to reach the 30 fps mark.
