Battlefield 4 optimized for AMD hardware

DICE is making sure that Battlefield 4 runs the best on AMD hardware, so get ready to upgrade your PC!... (AMD, Battlefield 4, PC)

I'm upgrading.

It's a promo deal, of course they have to advertise AMD as being better optimized.

It begins, a whole generation of games optimized for AMD over nVidia. All going according to keikaku.

Bad news for me I have a 680

Can't see why you say that Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 pretty much runs every game ever made at max settings.

If people actually do their research and look at review websites Nvidia hold the crown over AMD in performance.

So AMD may have got a promotional deal with Dice but Battlefield 3 runs much better on Intel and Nvidia solutions. Battlefield 4 has the same system requirements as BF3.

Yes but ive seen hi power AMD cards run like crap on a awful NIvida splash screen game. A game with no business doing anything to a high end amd card.

Another smack in the face of Nvidia.
Murad  +   824d ago
No it's not.
Donnieboi  +   823d ago
Actually, yes it is.

Murad  +   822d ago
No it's not. You're clearly wrong in every way. Especially considering the highest GPU can still run BF4.

I mentioned in a previous post that i built my gaming pc around amd and radeon hardware,a smart move me thinks:-}.....

It is if you will only be playing Battlefield!

Try playing Saints Row 3, and you'll get a glimpse as to how bad AMD really is. Not saying everything about AMD is bad, but it's really irritating that they never update everything, or that they don't have things that are exclusively built for an AMD chip, aside from BF4 apparently.

Its marketing bullcrap bf3 was also a amd sponsored game yet it ran better on nvidia hardware amd just recntly caught up with nvidia performance wise for bf3 . What a load of bull.
alexmac  +   825d ago
It most likely is, and they are working with Nvidia too anyways.

Why not just make it optimized for both platforms? Surely, business speaking, alienating one half of your consumer base is not a smart move. Obviously EA/Dice are in bed with AMD and have been given a lot of money to make such claims - but I seriously can't see there being a big difference, just as there wasn't with nVIDIA optimized games over AMD. The only reason a game will perform worse on one platform over another is because of poor engine coding and development - that isn't the fault of either nVIDIA or AMD, but rather the development team.

I seriously don't forsee either modern AMD or nVIDIA cards having an issue with this game, and if there IS a performance advantage with AMD, it'll most likely be so minimal (1 or 2FPS increase) that it's really not even worth the argument. All claims like this do is cause another fanboy war. Consoles have the 'PS4 vs. Xbox One' argument, PC's seem to have 'AMD vs nVIDIA'. They're both great vendors that produce some amazing hardware. If a studio with as much funding as these guys can't optimize their game for both platforms, then maybe they should start re-evaluating their development team.

Thats nividias money bags for you. Developers said nivida was paying them 2 million dollars each to make their games run on nivida better.
ThatEnglishDude  +   824d ago
Regardless of figures, we're still talking likely under 5fps difference, even IF there's any at all. It's all PR bs to get people ranting and raving. I have a very high end rig so I'm not worried anyway, but it just seems like a waste of time.
awi5951  +   824d ago
Also intel got caught making their cpus run slow when they detected amd products.
Pandamobile  +   824d ago
And yet the game will probably still perform better on NVidia hardware.
alexmac  +   824d ago
They are optimizing with NVidia too, but truth nonetheless.
