Battlefield 1 review: benchmarks with 13 graphics cards

Benchmarks in Full HD, WQHD en Ultra HD


Testing method and settings

We have tested Battlefield 1 with thirteen of the most important graphics cards: the new Pascal and Polaris GPU's and a few popular cards from the previous generations. The game does not have a built-in benchmark, so we rode a bit with a primitive 'tank' from the period. Since traditional benchmark-tools do not work with DirectX 12, we used PresentMon instead for our benchmarks. 

We tested the game in Full HD (1920x1080), WQHD (2560x1440) als Ultra HD/4K (3840x2160) resolutie. Our testing system consists of a Intel Core i7 5960X @ 4.0 GHz, MSI X99S Gaming 9 AC motherboard16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory @ 2133 MHz 13-13-13-36-2T, Samsung 840 Evo 1TB SSDSeasonic Platinum Series 1200W PSU, NZXT Kraken X60 CPU-koeler, Iiyama G-Master 'Gold Phoenix' GB2888UHSU-B1 and a Cooler Master Test Bench. For AMD cards we used the Catalyst 16.10.1 driver, while we used driver version 373.06 for Nvidia-cards.

As usual, we tested the game in Medium and Ultra settings. The following shows which settings we used:

Setting Medium Ultra
GPU Memory Restriction Off Off
Graphics Quality Medium Ultra
Texture Quality Medium Ultra
Lighting Quality Medium Ultra
Effects Quality Medium Ultra
Post Process Quality Medium Ultra
Mesh Quality Medium Ultra
Terrain Quality Medium Ultra
Undergrowth Quality Medium Ultra
Antialiasing Post FXAA High TAA
Ambient Occlusion HBAO HBAO

The big question is of course is whether there are differences in image quality between DirectX 11 and 12. We have made a few screenshots so you can compare the two API's. If there is a difference, it is a small one.
