Star Wars: Battlefront II Trial PC Performance Review

CPU Performance - Ryzen & Intel - How much CPU do you need to conduct a galactic war?

Methodology

Full on CPU performance testing is something that is relatively new in our PC game performance analysis pieces, with Ryzen performance being a new addition to our hardware test suite.

Here we have tested the game using an Intel i7 6850K Broadwell-E Hex-core and an AMD Ryzen 7 1700X over a variety of core configurations when playing the game at 1080p max settings on a GTX 1080. Both CPUs are run at similar clock speeds.

We ran our Ryzen 7 1700X with 8/16, 6/12, 4/8 and 4/4 core/thread configurations to closely match results from Ryzen 7, 5 and 3 processors. Note that in all of these tests that 16MB of L3 cache was active and that these are not exact emulations of each Ryzen series CPU at the same clock speeds. Even so, these results represent a reasonable ballpark figure.

On the Intel side, we tested 6/12, 4/8, 4/4 and 2/4 core configurations to represent Intel's current generation i3, i5 and i7 CPU core configurations. Both CPUs are clocked at 4.0GHz.

Star Wars: Battlefront II

In our benchmarking scene, it is clear that Battlefront II is GPU limited when the game is played at Ultra settings on our GTX 1080 at a resolution of 1080p, with only our dual-core, quad-thread tests providing a notable performance decrease during gameplay. 

When comparing our Ryzen and Broadwell-E CPUs we can see that the game has no real preference to either, with both providing similar average and minimum framerates aside from our dual-core testing. 

This is great news for those who are using quad-core CPUs or higher with reasonable levels of single-threaded performance, though given these levels of performance it is hard to see any relatively modern CPUs having any issues playing this game with a steady framerate.

Simple answer, because our games review guy does not have those GPUs to test with at the moment. This is something that we want to address but alas, hardware does not grow on trees.

The lack of these GPUs in our testing is not due to any lack of desire to test them.Quote

Vast majority of people don't have those cards anyway. So does it even matter much? It's not like you don't know where they will end up anywayQuote

It'd be nice to see the 56 brought into the lineup at least. While Vega was a bit of let down the 56 at least holds its own and does vary between competing with a 1070 or 1080 depending on the game.Quote

Same could be said for any GPU we test at some point. Doesn't mean that the Vega series doesn't deserve a spot in the lineup.

While Vega can be seen as a letdown, it does offer decent levels of performance when priced correctly. Some games do take advantage of the hardware quite well, particularly Wolfenstein II: TNC when using the latest game updates.

Far Cry 5 will also be an interesting example since it uses Rapid Packed math.Quote
