Starwars Battlefront Graphics Settings

We ran Star Wars: Battlefront with the image quality settings set at Ultra and VSYNC  was disabled. We used FRAPS to benchmark with these settings on Battle on Tatooine.

Star Wars 1080P Benchmark

1080P Benchmark Results: All of these high end cards were able to play Star Wars: Battlefront at 1080P Full HD resolution and never dipped below 100 FPS in the map that we tested. The EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Hybrid performed slightly better than the Zotac GeForce GTX 970 Amp! Omega and was on par with the XFX Radeon R9 390.

Star Wars 1440P Benchmark

1440P Benchmark Results:  The EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Hybrid wasn’t able to best the XFX Radeon R9 390 at this higher resolution, but not that it really matters much as all the cards were above 60 FPS at all times. 

Star Wars 4K Benchmark

4K Ultra HD Benchmark Results: When moving up to 3840×2160 the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 Hyrbid Gaming was just shy of 40 FPS on average and we found that Star Wars: Battlefront was actually playable with this card!

    Kind of disappointed eVGA didn’t put this cooling on a more impressive version of the 970. I know they were aiming for a quiet card, but I think they would have reached a more receptive audience if this was a 970 with beefed up power-phase and OC capability.

      They may have left it lower, since we enthusiasts would try to overclock it anyways because….heck, it has water cooling! 😀 It would prevent a glut of returns from those who burned them up.

    Not worth the money. I got the same board gtx 970 and i added Arctic Accelero Mono plus on it. I got max temp 50’C and pure silent. Gpu is on 1200 MHz (1400 MHz turbo) and ram on 7000 MHz (very bad elpida). I dont put more on core, bcuz i dont need to get extra 50 Mhz with really heavy load.
