BattleField Hardline Performance Review AMD vs Nvidia
Published: 1st April 2015 | Source: ASUS | Price: |
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.
