DX11: Battlefield 4
In Battlefield 4, players step into the role of a U.S. Marines named Recker who leads a special operations unit called ‘Tombstone’. While the single-player campaign offers a unique and exciting storyline, BF4 truly shine with a new 64-player online multiplayer mode with large spacious maps.
The graphics engine behind Battlefield 4 is called Frostbite 3, which offers more realistic environments with higher resolution textures and next-generation particle effects. A first-time ‘networked water’ fluid system allows players in the game to see the same wave at the same time. Tessellation has also been improved since Frostbite 2 in BF3.
AMD graphics cards are optimized for Battlefield 4 using AMD’s Mantle API that enables a boost in performance.
Using Fraps to record frame rates, our Battlefield 4 benchmark test uses a three-minute capture on the ‘Baku’ stage where Recker is handed the tactical binoculars. Relative to the online multiplayer action, these frame rate results are nearly identical to most large maps with the same video settings.
