Benchmarks: Star Wars Battlefront, Far Cry Primal
The RX 480 can be seen delivering performance that previously cost $300 plus in Star Wars Battlefront, as it exceeds the R9 390 and GTX 970 by a slim margin. Interestingly, while the R9 390 and R9 390X both dip quite low in this test the RX 480 doesn't, which is interesting.
Playing Battlefront at 1440p the RX 480 delivered an average of 52fps, placing it on par with the GTX 970 and just ahead of the R9 390. It was however 37% faster than the R9 380 and 58% faster than the GTX 960.
Even at 1080p we find that Far Cry Primal is a demanding game as the RX 480 falls short of the 60fps target. Still it did manage to outclass the GTX 970 and wasn't a great deal slower than the GTX 980. An average of 55fps means that it was 44% faster than the R9 380 and 77% faster than the GTX 960.
Primal at 1440p does require serious GPU firepower and we can see that even the GTX 1070 falls short of 60fps. Despite only rendering an average of 39fps the RX 480 was 44% faster than the R9 380 and 77% faster than the GTX 960.
