Star Wars: Battlefront

Star Wars Battlefront

Star Wars: Battlefront is a series of first- and third-person shooter video games based on the Star Wars films. Players take the role of soldiers in either of two opposing armies in different time periods of the Star Wars universe. Star Wars: Battlefront is built on the Frostbite 3 engine. Thief is the fourth title in the Thief series, developed by Digital Illusions CE and published by EA DICE/Disney Interactive on November 17, 2015.

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.


Benchmark Results: The performance gap between the Zotac GeForce GTX 970 and XFX Radeon R9 390 was wider than we’ve seen in the other benchmarks with the R9 390 averaging 83 FPS versus 75 FPS on the GTX 970. 


Benchmark Results: When moving up to 3840×2160 the  Radeon R9 390 actually was within 1 FPS on average of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 reference card with exactly the same minimum frame rate. The XFX Rafeon R9 390 Black Edition OC 8GB Graphics Card packs a pretty mean punch and it’s impressive that this $339 card can hang with a GeForce GTX 980 4GB card that starts out at $479!
