Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 is one of the most popular games of the Battlefield franchise, being released in 2013. It is based on the Frostbite 3 engine, which is DirectX 11.

We ran this game at Full HD, setting overall image quality at “high.”

The results below are expressed in fps and they are the mean between the three collected results.
