Garena Free Fire vs Free Fire Max: GARENA FREE FIRE MAX OFFERS BETTER GRAPHICS
The major difference between Garena Free Fire and Garena Free Fire Max is the better graphics that the latter offers. The standard game did not have as high graphics as one would expect from the likes of Call of Duty: Mobile and Battlegrounds Mobile India, and Garena Free Fire Max was launched last year as a more direct competitor to the two games. The standard version that was banned earlier this week was a rather low intensity game, and ran smoothly on budget phones as well. With Garena Free Fire Max now being the only option, many players may have to upgrade their smartphones.
Garena Free Fire vs Free Fire Max: FREE FIRE MAX NEEDS DOUBLE STORAGE SPACE
Given that Garena Free Fire Max offers better graphics, it should come as no surprise that the game requires more storage space. While the standard Garena Free Fire was somewhere around 500-700MB in size, the new game goes up to 1.5GB in size and will require more space on users’ smartphones. It also consumes more battery, according to online reports.
Garena Free Fire vs Free Fire Max: FREE FIRE MAX NEEDS MORE RAM
With the better graphics, comes the requirement of more RAM and a more advanced processor and GPU. Free Fire Max consumes more CPU, GPU, and RAM than the standard version that is now banned in India. The game’s system requirements ask for about 4GB of RAM or more to run smoothly.

FREE FIRE MAX: NEW FEATURES, CHARACTERS, AND ABILITIES
