The battle between AMD and NVIDIA is neverending. Hardware.info tested 13 graphics cards in Battlefield 1, a new first-shooter game released a couple of weeks ago. Here we will touch few interesting details of that test and summarise the information.
AMD and NVIDIA
Again, the two main competitors in the production of graphics cards are brought together to determine who is the best. 13 graphic cards were tested in Battlefield 1 with different parameters. We will pay more attention to performance in DirectX 12, as it is the present and the future of games at least for a while.
Running the game with Ultra graphics configurations and in high resolutions, such as 2560 × 1440 or 4k, both NVIDIA GTX 1080 and Radeon R9 Fury X show great results. The difference in performance is between 13 and 8 frames per second. However, NVIDIA is the leader in this race. Even though NVIDIA prevails in many tests, the following comparison changes the game.
If we take into account prices of those graphic cards and compare it with performance a different picture appears before our eyes. In performance per $ chart, the leaders are AMD Radeon RX 480, Radeon R9 Fury X and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060. The difference, in this case, reaches up to 33 units between the competitors.
Overall, NVIDIA performs better than AMD in DirectX 12 Battlefield 1. However, AMD does not lag far behind and seem like a more cost-effective choice. Here at Bits & PCs, London computer repair service, we can give you a valuable advice and assistance upgrading your gear.
