Star Wars: Battlefront II Trial PC Performance Review

Low-end GPU showdown -R9 380 VS GTX 960 - Is 2GB of RAM enough? 

In some modern games, we have found that our older 2GB R9 380 and GTX 960 Strix GPUs struggle to achieve high framerates due to their small bank of VRAM, though this is clearly not the case in Battlefront II. 

At Ultra settings these two GPUs do struggle to achieve a solid 60FPS in our test scene, though when we move the game down to high settings we see both GPUs achieve a steady 60+ FPS framerate at 1080p. This is great news for users of low-end or older hardware, as there is still plenty of room for adjustment to allow even older GPUs to achieve high framerates in this game.

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
