ASUS R9 280X DirectCU II TOP & R9 270 DirectCU II OC Testing:

Battlefield 4  is a first-person shooter developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. Battlefield 4 uses the Frostbite 3 game engine as a step up from the Frostbite 2 engine used in BF3. As the successor to Battlefield franchise the graphics are improved. Following a set release cycle Battlefield 4 was released for the PC in North America in October 2013 supporting DirectX 11 and now after multiple patches AMD's Mantle API.

1920x1080     5760x1080

 

Running under the DX 11 API, both the R9 280X and R9 270 DirectCU II based cards deliver frame rates well above 30 FPS at 1920x1080. To get to 30 FPS at 5760x1080, you need a little more oomph in the form of the R9 290X. If that's out of reach, using less aggressive settings can help. One other option that exists to improve performance for AMD based cards, is to change the API from DX 11 to Mantle. Even using the ultra preset, the gameplay was smooth in both resolutions shown by the tight frame time variances.
