Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 (DirectX 11)

Battlefield 4 features an intense and character-driven single player campaign, fused with the strongest elements of multiplayer. Pilot vehicles, take advantage of the dynamic destructible environments and don't let your squad down.

Watch the new single player trailer above for a glimpse of the drama and perils Tombstone Squad has to face, trying to find its way back home.

Throw yourself into the all-out war of Battlefield 4's multiplayer. With support for 64 players and 7 unique game modes available on 10 vast maps, nothing compares to the scale and scope of Battlefield 4.

Though frame times are consistent and smooth for the new AMD Fury X, we again find that it loses to the GTX 980 Ti from NVIDIA by double digits; average frame rates are about 12% slower at 2560×1440. The good news is that performance over the R9 290X is up by about 24%, a sizeable win considering the architectural similarities and the power consumption drops.

The Fury X again produced very smooth and consistent frame rates for us in BF4 but it hasn't been able to shake the GTX 980 Ti off of its back yet, falling behind at 4K by a similar percentage: 11% on average.

2560×1440 -12% +24% -43%
3840×2160 -11% +33% -38%

The Fury X shines well here if only compared against the R9 290X but the battle with NVIDIA's latest $650 offering is another beast. BF4 is an old enough title that I would think the drivers would have been able to be tweaked to pefection for Fiji, but that 11-12% loss indicates otherwise.
