Star Wars Squadrons Laptop and Desktop Benchmarks

X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter. Only a year after the first-class Jedi Fallen Order, EA sends its next Star Wars epic into the race. Squadrons offers action-filled space fights and turns out to be surprisingly undemanding when it comes to hardware.

Star Wars Squadrons

Technology

Star Wars Squadrons is based on the Frostbite Engine 3 which fuels many titles from EA (Need for Speed Heat, Fifa 20, Battlefield V, ...) and is known for its good quality and moderate hardware requirements at the same time.

Squadrons scores with a chic look. In addition to the effects (laser beams, explosions etc.), the lighting and the sharpness of the textures can convince. Star Wars fans also look forward to the detailed spaceships and lovingly crafted interiors on the space station. Thanks to the original music and coherent atmosphere, there is generally a lot of Star Wars flair. Even Newbies find their way into the space genre, thanks to the quick start and the easy access (keyword controls).

Concerning the graphics menus, no criticism is appropriate too. The video menu offers close to 10 detailed settings in the lower area, which can be changed globally via Graphics Quality presets. There are also controls for the brightness, resolution scaling, sharpness of antialiasing as well as on and off switches for the vertical sync, film graining, and HDR. The resolution, picture mode, and framerate can of course also be adjusted. Very nice: Chenges to the settings can be applied without restarting the game.

Typical for the Frostbite engine, many settings have little effect on the look or the performance. Therefore, Squadrons still sports nice visuals even in low details, except for the weak shadows. Because the engine is being used for many years, the game usually leaves a well-optimized and clean impression as we will see in the benchmarks.

There were hardly any technical problems during our tests, although - independent of the installed hardware and the chosen settings - occasional stutters were observed (especially shortly after loading new levels or savegames). Sometimes, the game wouldn't start correctly (the anti-cheat software then reported an error code). Loading times vary depending on the storage device used. They are acceptible with an SSD but quite long with an HDD.

Benchmarks

We use the Practice mode for our speed tests, it is hidden in the Multiplayer and Training menu. We start a flight on the Galactic Empires side and use the tool CapFrameX to capture the performance for 30s (see video). The demands of the sequence are on a medium level, which means that there are more demanding but also less demanding scenes within the game.

Since Squadrons is a fast pace first-person action game which requires quick response times, it should reach at least 40 FPS or better 60 FPS.

Results

FHD (1.920 x 1.080)

While most other action games scream for a real gaming-GPU, Squadrons proofs to be very modest in relation to the offered graphics quality. 1.920 x 1.080 pixels and medium settings can be played on a low-end chip such as the GeForce MX330 or MX350.

Während die meisten Action-Games nach einer waschechten Gaming-GPU schreien, erweist sich Squadrons in Relation zur gebotenen Grafikqualität als sehr genügsam. 1.920 x 1.080 Pixel und mittlere Settings werden bereits von einem Low-End-Chip auf dem Level der GeForce MX330 bzw. MX350 ordentlich befeuert. Letzteres Modell reicht laut unseren Benchmarks auch für hohe Details. Wer Squadrons in Full-HD mit allen Reglern auf Anschlag genießen möchte, dürfte derweil ab einer GeForce GTX 1050 (Ti) glücklich werden, welche in der unteren Mittelklasse angesiedelt ist.

UHD (3.840 x 2.160)

Selbst beim Einsatz von 3.840 x 2.160 Pixeln muss es nicht unbedingt ein High-End-Vertreter sein. Schon eine GeForce GTX 1660 Ti knackt im Ultra-Preset fast die 60-FPS-Marke.

May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.

Because of my interest in computer games I started studying computer science, became a psychologist, but stayed true to the games and the hardware. For example during my year abroad in London as a games tester at Sega. In my spare time I find a balance between PC games and sports (meanwhile mainly indoor soccer and running after my toddler), playing guitar and building bamboo bikes (well, so far only one under guidance).
