Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280X TRI-X 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.
- Game settings = Ultra
- DirectX 11
At 1920x1080, Sapphire's Vapor-X R9 280X TRI-X OC delivers right at 60FPS using the ultra preset. By the time it gets to the 5760x1080 resolution you have to reduce the eye candy or switch to AMD's Mantle API instead of using the DX 11 default API.
