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.

DirectX 11 (ATI HD 5000 Series Only)

DirectX 10 (NVIDIA and Older ATI HD 4000 Series Only)

Across the board we see the HD 5000 series cards put out good numbers in BattleForge. Compared to the GTX 295 we can see that the HD 5970 is able to outperform NVIDIAs dual GPU offering while implementing the latest DirectX technology as well.
