DX11: BattleForge

BattleForge is free Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) developed by EA Phenomic with DirectX-11 graphics capability. Combining strategic cooperative battles, the community of MMO games, and trading card gameplay, BattleForge players are free to put their creatures, spells and buildings into combination's they see fit. These units are represented in the form of digital cards from which you build your own unique army. With minimal resources and a custom tech tree to manage, the gameplay is unbelievably accessible and action-packed.

Benchmark Reviews uses the built-in graphics benchmark to measure performance in BattleForge, using Very High quality settings (detail) and 8x anti-aliasing with auto multi-threading enabled. BattleForge is one of the first titles to take advantage of DirectX-11 in Windows 7, and offers a very robust color range throughout the busy battleground landscape. The charted results illustrate how performance measures-up between video cards when Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO) is enabled.

  • BattleForge v1.2
    • Extreme Settings: (Very High Quality, 8x Anti-Aliasing, Auto Multi-Thread)

EDITOR'S NOTE: AMD is aware of performance concerns with BattleForge, and offered us an official response:

"We are aware that there are some abnormal performance results in BattleForge with our new AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series graphics card. Keep in mind this is a new VLIW4 shader architecture and we are still fine tuning the shader compilation. We will be able to post a hotfix for Battleforge shortly that will provide a noticeable increase in performance."

2 GTX-470 = 2 X 1280 RAM = 2560(AROUND)
2 GTX-560 = 2 X 1000 RAM = 2000

CAN TWO GT-560 STILL BEAT TWO GTX-470?

first off, ram in a graphics card doesn't determine performance. having said that, two 560 ti will most definitely beat out two gtx 470

When you put two cards in SLI or crossfire you dont double the memory. The memory on the second card is lost Be aware of what you write, there is a lot of misinformation on the subject.

it is not personnal.. :)

Sli/Xfire will double the bus to the memory though. The memory isn't lost, its just stacked. For example 1gb 256 bit plus 1gb 256 bit=1gb 512 bit(in theory). So one card doesn't have its memory shut off, both memory sets are working on the sharing the load.

One mistake made in this review.A 6970 should have been thrown into the mix,seeing as how it only takes a simple bios flash to turn a 6950 into 6970.

That wasn't a mistake at all. How do you justify comparing a $370 video card against one that costs $250?

How much is a GTX 570 in your American dollars? and flashing a 6950 to a 6970 costs no money...

You guys don't get it?A 6970 should be thrown into the mix because you can reach that exact same level of performance out of a 6950 with a bios flash and a slight overclock.This would give you a better Comparison of the difference in value between the 6950 and the gtx 570.
