Gaming Performance (part 1)
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. In order to measure performance using this game, we walked our way through the first mission, measuring the number of frames per second (fps) three times using FRAPS. We ran this game at Full HD and 4K UHD, setting overall image quality at “ultra.”
The results below are expressed in fps and they are the mean between the three collected results.
On Battlefield 4, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti was 7.9% faster than the R9 Fury X at 4K UHD, and 21% faster at Full HD.
Dirt Rally is an off-road racing game released in April 2015, using Ego engine. To measure performance using this game, we ran the performance test included in the game, in Full HD and 4K UHD resolutions and image quality configured as “ultra” and MSAA 2x.
The results below are expressed in fps.
In this game, the Radeon R9 Fury X was faster than the GTX 980 Ti, outperforming it by 7.4% at 4K UHD and by 5.7% at Full HD.
Dragon Age: Inquisition
Dragon Age: Inquisition is the most recent game from the popular action RPG franchise Dragon Age. It was launched in November 2014 and uses the Frostbite 3 engine with SpeedTree.
We ran the game at 4K UHD and Full HD, with all quality options at “ultra,” measuring three times the frame rate with FRAPS. The results below are expressed in fps and represent the arithmetical mean of the three collected results.
On Dragon Age: Inquisition the GeForce GTX 980 Ti beat the R9 Fury X by 9% at 4K UHD and by 19% at Full HD.
