Results: Battlefield 4
Battlefield 4’s 200 FPS cap takes a big toll on the $2400 Q1 PC's value, though that machine finally started to show SLI's advantage at a resolution of 4900x900. Using just one Radeon R9 290X, the Q2 and Q3 machine are closely matched.
Better GPU overclocking helps last quarter's machine stay ahead of the Q3 build under Battlefield 4's Ultra quality preset. Both PCs used the same graphics card, so this advantage is attributable to the same luck of the draw that hurt Q2’s CPU overclock.
