Battlefield V is a first-person shooter EA DICE and published by Electronic Arts. Battlefield V is the latest games in the Battlefield series. Battlefield V takes place during World War 2. It has both a single-player and an online portion. For this review, we tested part of Battlefield V single-player, War Stories. The section that was tested was the second act of the Nordlys War Story. You play a young woman who is part of the Norwegian resistance whose mission it is to save her mother and help destroy a key component the Germans need to complete their atomic bomb.
In Battlefield V, there really wasn’t a clear winner. In 1080p, the Pulse RX 5700 XT came out the winner with an average frame rate of 155 FPS. Next was the Vega 2 with an average of 150 followed by the reference 5700 XT with 136 FPS and last was the reference RX 5700 with an average of 128 FPS. In 1440p, it was more the same with the Pulse averaging 127 FPS, the Vega 2 averaged 111 FPS. I was surprised at how far behind the reference cards were with the 5700 XT averaging 99 FPS and the 5700 with an average of 69. In 4k, the Vega 2 came out on top with an average of 68 fps. Next was our Pulse 5700 XT with 64 FPS. Then the reference 5700 XT with an average of 56 FPS and last was the 5700 with an average of 52 FPS in 4k.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an action role-playing game with first-person shooter and stealth mechanics that released in 2016. Set two years after Human Revolution in 2029, the world is divided between normal humans and those with advanced, controversial artificial organs called augmentations. You take up the role of Adam Jensen, a double agent for the hacker group Juggernaut Collective, who are equipped with the latest and most advanced augmentation technology. This game is beautiful and still very demanding on your system. The section benchmarked was near the beginning of the game, after the tutorial.
In Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the reference 5700 XT did best with an average of 100 fps. Next was the Vega 2 with an average of 97 fps followed by out Pulse 5700 XT with an average of 94 and the reference 5700 with an average of 91 fps. In 1440p, the reference 5700 XT and the Vega 2 were dead even with an average of 690 fps. Next was the Pulse 5700 XT with an average of 67 FPS and the 5700 was last with an average of 63 fps. In 4k, the Pulse 5700 XT and the Vega 2 tied for first with an average of 37 FPS. The reference 5700 XT was within margin of error with 36 fps and the 5700 was last with an average of 33 fps.
Far Cry 5 is the latest in the far cry series. It takes place in the fictional Hope County Montana. You play the role of the un-named deputy who’s sent to arrest Joseph Seed, the leader of the dangerous Edens Gate Cult. However, things do not go as planned and you spend the game trapped in Hope County attempting to take out Joseph and the rest of his family as they attempt to take over the entire county. Far Cry 5 was released in 2018. Ubisoft has developed a beautiful open world with amazing visuals. However, the game is very demanding on even the most powerful systems. This game was tested with the in-game benchmark, as well as near the beginning of the game when you first leave the bunker owned by Dutch as you attempt to clear his island of cult members.
In Far Cry, at 1080p resolution, the Pulse 5700 XT came out on top with an average of 134 FPS. Next was the reference 5700 XT with 129 fps followed by the Vega 2 tied with the reference 5700 with an average of 120. The Pulse again came out ahead of the pack with an average of 117 fps in 1440p resolution. The Vega 2 came in second with an average of 107 fps at 1440p. Next was the reference 5700 XT with an average of 99 fps and again the 5700 was last with an average of 88 fps. At 4k resolution on Far Cry 5, the Pulse 5700 XT was again the winner with an average of 63 FPS. The Vega 2 was second again with an average of 60 fps.

Final Fantasy XV
Fans of the Final Fantasy series waited well over a decade for this game to release. Final Fantasy XV is an open-world action role-playing game. You play as the main protagonist Noctis Lucis Caelum during his journey across the world of Eos. Final Fantasy XV was developed and published by Square Enix as part of the long-running Final Fantasy series that first started on the original NES back in the late 1980s. The section that was benchmarked was the first section near the start of the game, where there was actual combat.
All four cards performed similarly in Final Fantasy XV. The Pulse came out on top again in 1080p with an average of 113 FPS. Next the RX 5700 and the Vega 2 tied with an average of 107 FPS. To my surprise, the reference 5700 XT came in last with an average of 105. However, I feel this results may have been skewed a bit due to the extremely low minimum of zero fps. In 1440p, the reference 5700 XT came in first with an average of 79 fps followed by the Vega 2 card with an average of 77 fps. The Pulse was right behind the Vega 2 with an average of 76 fps and the 5700 was last with 75 fps. The reference 5700 XT was again first in 4k with an average of 47 FPS. Next was the Vega 2 with an average of 46 FPS in 4k. The Pulse 5700 XT came in third with an average of 44 FPS in 4k and the 5700 was last with an average of 42 fps in 4k.
