BattleField Hardline Performance Review AMD vs Nvidia

Performance

BattleField : Hardline

Performance

Two things are very apparent. Firstly the performance difference between the R9 290X and GTX980 is pretty big. You absolutely want to be running the AMD card if this game is your weapon of choice. Secondly the sweet spot for looks and gameplay is definitely 1440P on High. Although both cards in our roundup will run smoothly at 1080P on Ultra, there isn't much graphical difference between the three settings. Certainly not enough to be worth a jerky multiplayer experience. The move to 4K definitely punishes the frame rate, but these are early drivers on an unpatched game. BattleField 4 improved tremendously as it matured, and we're sure that Hardline will do the same.

I still love the fact that the 290X came out October 2013, The GTX 980 came out November 2014 and the 290X is beating it nicely.

I know it's an AMD title but it's good to see this Quote

That's what optimization does for ya, taking older hardware and making them spank the new hardware

I know it was DX11 only but i am interested in Mantle. Maybe like a scaling benchmark between 295x2/290/280x etc.Quote
