Battlefield 1 Test Setup


While playing and benchmarking the Battlefield 1, I am using a Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 motherboard powered with an Intel Core i7-6700K. The CPU is set to run at its default stock speeds of 4.0Ghz to 4.2GHz (boost). Below are the rest of the system specifications:

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7
Processor: Intel Core i7-6700K
CPU Cooler: Cryorig A40 Ultimate All-in-One
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200MHz 32GB
Storage Drives: Zotac Sonix 480GB NVMe SSD OS, OCZ RD400 NVMe SSD (game drive)
Power Supply: FSP Aurum PT 1000W

The graphics cards used are as follows with their respective default clock speeds:

Graphics CardBase ClockBoost ClockVRAMMemory Clock
Galax GTX 1080 HOF1734 MHz1873 MHz8GB (GDX)1251 MHz
Zotac GTX 1070 AMP! Extreme1633 MHz1835 MHz8GB (GD5)2052 MHz
PNY GTX 1060 6GB1506 MHz1709 MHz6GB (GD5)2002 MHz
AMD Radeon RX 4801266 MHzN/A8GB (GD5)2000 MHz

For the GeForce graphics cards, I used the NVIDIA GeForce GameReady 373.06 WHQL driver, while for the AMD Radeon RX 480, I used the newly released AMD Crimson 16.10.2 Beta Win 10 64-bit driver.

In getting the minimum, maximum and average frames per second while in DirectX 11 or DX11 mode, I used the good old Fraps utility. However, Fraps doesn’t support DX12 yet, so I used another method to extract those numbers. I used PresentMon for the DX12 mode; I only got the chance to test it with the Radeon RX 480 due to time constraint. PresentMon is still an unpolished small utility to extract FPS in DX12. I was also quite interested to see whether the Radeon RX 480 would somehow get better results while in DX12 mode compared to DX11. DirectX 12 is one of AMD’s forte and we have seen (huge) improvements while on DX12 or Vulkan on the Doom 2016 game.

Note: Battlefield 1 doesn’t have a built-in benchmark system. I used the war stories, The Runner mission, to benchmark the game because I find that graphics was more intense compared to other missions. I haven’t fully explored the game yet; I haven’t finished all the war stories at this time and haven’t tried all maps during multiplayer. Probably, there might be maps, scenarios or environments where it is more graphics intensive than The Runner mission. This would also mean that for maps or missions that require lesser GPU power, you may experience higher average FPS.

Now let’s proceed to the next page for the benchmark results…

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
