Homefront’s PC version was developed by Digital Extremes, a Canadian developer responsible for numerous Unreal Tournament games and Bioshock ports. It received mixed reports, although Kitguru really likes the single player aspect of this title. The engine isn’t the most demanding on the market, but it requires decent partnering hardware for solid frame rates at 1080p.
Performance from both cards is very strong, with the HD7870 slotting in right behind the HD7950, averaging a few frames less each second. The HD7850 manages to slightly outperform the GTX570 with this engine.
