Is there a Hardline of difference between AMD and NVIDIA?

Battlefield Hardline is in public beta for those who have tired of Battlefield 4 and are looking for a new online Frostbite 3 shooter to play and [H]ard|OCP has run benchmarks to show you what kind of performance you can expect.  They gathered together three cards from the two companies, a GTX 980, 970 and 960 as well as an R9 290X DD, 290 and 285 with a mix of default and factory overclocked frequencies.  As of yet there is no Mantle support in the beta so both vendors are using DX11 in the tests, with the top four cards at 2560x1440 and the remaining two at 1080p, all set to 4X MSAA and Ultra settings except for the Dustbowl map.  The GTX 980 takes top spot but the most interesting results are the 290X and 970; the difference is so minuscule that they essentially perform at the same level and the same can be said of the pricing.  Also worthy of note is that in only one test did the cards use more than 3GB of RAM and never hit 3.5GB.

"We hopped on the open public beta of Battlefield Hardline this past week and tested performance in all three maps with six video cards to find out how this game performs. We will talk about each map in the beta, and our experiences in terms of performance and gameplay experience so that you will know what to expect in the full game."

I read the actual article and really wonder if you did. Their conclusion, "As it is right now, NVIDIA GPUs simply offer smoother gameplay in Battlefield Hardline."

Agreed. The results show that all AMD cards are a stuttering mess in this game.

Hopefully AMD will be able to fix this in drivers or with Mantle support.

hardline isn't a demanding game it lacks all the destruction a real BF game has.

BFH can run on 560. It feels like made to run on PS2 and 1st gen Xbox, a step back from BF4. Even guns feel like CS.

True, my 570 just loved the game but not me.
