PowerColor Devil 13 Dual Core R9 290X 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 newest entry in the 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.



  • Game settings = Ultra




















Running under the DX 11 API, the Devil 13 just cannot pump out enough frames per second to pass the green team. It does however get within 4 FPS at 5760x1080 and within 3 FPS at 4K. Surprisingly, when running under the Mantle API, my average FPS did not go up by more than a single FPS. Where I saw the difference was on the low end, with the minimum FPS rising under AMD's Mantle API.
