PlanetSide 2 Benchmarks

PlanetSide 2 may not be as popular as the other games we tested, but still fares pretty well, enough that Sony is preparing the game for the PS4. Players tend to praise the huge, intense battles, that even at low levels you feel you are contributing to the war effort, and the smart implementation of the free to play model.

At 1680x1050 high-end GPUs handle the game with ease, however budget to mid-range cards like the GTX 750 Ti start to feel the heat when graphics settings are set to Ultra.

Dropping the graphics to High gives a generous boost to mid-range cards and makes the game somewhat playable with Intel and AMD integrated graphics.

At 1920x1200, the $150 discrete GPUs barely make it through the 30fps barrier. The R9 270 delivered a playable 40fps, but you will need something faster for silky smooth frame rates at this resolution and Ultra graphics.

PlanetSide 2 becomes very taxing at 2560x1600, with even high-end graphics cards failing to meet the fps cap of 60fps except for the GeForce GTX 780.
