my gtx480 is equivalent to the gtx570, so i don't worry, high-ultra for me.
Considering how many different versions there are of the GTX460 there are, its not that huge an issue for it to be compared to a 5830, as it's not as fast as a 5850, and maybe in this game both cards do have similar performance.
Also EA/Dice have been saying for a while now that this game had support, so likely also funding from AMD, Nvidia and Microsoft to help push the sale of new hardware and operating systems.
Whether it backfires on EA/Dice or not, we will have to wait and see.
hello low settings '__'
The Official Requirements are HERE:
Yes! They recommend GTX560. My GTX460 is running the exact same speeds as an out of box GTX560. They even share the same amount of 336 cuda-cores. Both 256bit!
Like I said for a few months ago guys: GTX460 with decent OC paired with an I5-2500K will give you smooth high quality gaming experience in BF3!!
Exactly! And when you tried to argue this with me a while back saying my GTX460 would be lucky to produce 30 frames on medium I said not true!
We will find out in the next day or so, well you guys will, as no beta for me.
Even though i'm only planning on using MLAA, i still don't expect much more than 30-40fps from this on Ultra, especially when the dev's have been saying most of the videos have been running on 2x580.
You tried to argue a 560TI was the same as your 460 which its not (TI has more Shader Cores and Texture Units which no overclocking is going to change)
you also said your 460 would max bf3 out at 60fps which it won't.
One thing I will say is I think it takes the piss when they re-brand cards as higher numbers, most people won't know the difference between 560ti and a 560 and even fewer know a 560 is just a re-branded 460.
But I honestly think they mean a Ti in the recommended specs seems as it paired with the 6950.
True. Very misleading using the non Ti model. The Ti model is a better card. It isn't night and day though. The difference is what? 50 cuda-cores in total? But that will really help a shader intensive game like BF3 me thinks...
How about an overclocked GTX 570 (900core/2000mem) and i5 2500k at 4.5GHz? Is that not good enough for ultra settings on 1080p?
"84% of gamers do not meet recommended requirements for BF3"
if true, that's good news, money will be spent to upgrade and companies will profit
bf3 for the win here
Which isnt that big deal for most of people.
I hope I dont struggle with 1GB vram. The game looks fantastic and I am glad to see it pushes hardware.
Lots of in game options to mess with to get it running how you want it on a variety of hardware my opinion.
sorry but I'll be skipping this the always on net connection is bull sh@t for single player or maybe I'll buy then crack it as EA or Origin don't pay my net bill they can get stuffed 30GB per month cost $70 here in NZ so I don't want a game chewing it up
Well that's cool but you can play sp offline.
So... is this confirmed to be for Origin only? Steam is the only computer parasite/DRM I will tolerate. If it's Origin only I'm not buying it. I may not buy it just because EA is associated with it.
Well guess I am good to go time three! I have sli 580's, sli 470's and a 5970! Guess my house is helping out that 16%!
Yeah, for bull**** reasons, too:
Yeah, **** you EA. "Only the best quality service"?
That's why Origin plans to pay per download, right.
