The Gods have disappeared and the old sun has died, letting a vile twilight engulf the world of Nyn. In exchange for all treasures the mortals possessed, the evil giants agreed to forge a new sun and hurl it into the sky.


But the deal was betrayed, the treasure stolen and now the mortals flee the wrath of the giants. Under the light of a new sun the mortals stumble into a world changed and twisted by an age of twilight. The long journey home has become a conquest of survival.


Note: Supporting DirectX 11 we have seperated the graphs for NVIDIA and ATI cards. While the numbers between the two brands can be compared you have to make note that ATI based HD 5000 series cards are running DirectX 11.




BattleForge is one of the most intensive games in our lineup. When we're not dealing with a minimum we consider an average of around 60 FPS to be smooth. You can see that the GTX 480 is able to offer this at 2560 x 1600. Of course, more FPS is always better, especially when we're talking about a card getting the minimum of what we really want.


You can clearly see the HD 5970 offers a huge increase over the GTX 480 and the Sapphire HD 5970 TOXIC offers an ever bigger bump with it being roughly 15% faster than the stock one.
