We fired up the same missions to see how well the AMD solution with the latest Crimson ReLive driver can cope with the demanding scenes of BF1 with DX11 and DX12 renderers.
It is hard to declare which version is the winner as the frame times are nearly indistinguishable from one another. The frame times are far from smooth in the Break of Dawn mission as the German onslaught intensifies and the town section of Steel on Steel. Surprisingly, the air combat is no issue for both renderers.
The performance characteristics of BF1 on AMD A10-7860K coincide with our findings in HITMAN. DX12 is not a game changer on integrated graphics, but at least we haven't find any regression as on the i3-6100. Can't wait to test these games on the big guns - BoostClock dGPU FTAs are on the way!
