DICE has revealed the ultra high end PC that will power Battlefield 4 at GamesCom later this month.
i want to see what it looks like on the PS4. do you guys think will see it running on the PS4 at GAMESCOM at all???
Judging from what I’m reading. We’re looking at a AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor, so including everything you posted. The price of this PC would stand somewhere just under $2,000. Not bad actually.
You get the same result with a $400 ps4
PS4 doesn't have a 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor...
PS4's cpu is clocked lower, and less performance than an Intel chip at the same clock speeds.
No. you don't get the same results with a PS4. Don't fool yourself. The PS4 will first off, have a mobile processor isn't isn't as strong as this processor.. I don't even need to go on after that. Besides, what does that ahve to do with this conversation?
PS4 will have nice specs for what it is. But it won't compare to this rig. PS4 has a slower CPU with a low clock speed because of HSA. The CPU will be used for the most basic of things. However, because the games will be multi-threaded, you don't really need a super-high IPC for basic things like A.I. and positions of objects on the map, etc. The GPU will handle the visual things, the textures, the usual, as well as physics, taking nice loads off the CPU. But no, the PS4 won't get you the "same result" as a ~$2000+ gaming rig. You pay for what you get most of the time.
in general the PS4 Is better
"You get the same result with a $400 ps4" But you get nowhere near as many exclusives as you get on the PC.
4,000$ ...LOL these articles...Judging from those specs its not over 2000$. As for "modesign" comment : No you don't get the same results with a 400$ PS4. It can't run this game at 60fps with 2560x1440 resolution,4x AA and 16x AF ultra settings. Sorry but you get what you pay for
So ea designed bf4 specifically for a 4k PC. For $4k I'm gonna want the game to have maps the size of states and 5k npc' s on screen
Are you not listening? He just said judging from the specs, it own't be over $2000...which is exactly like I posted. Don't fall so hard for the Sony propaganda dude. Sonys (and microsofts) NEXT Gen, is PCs, Last Gen. And unlike consoles, we're not limited to Resolutions for Frames Per second. I'd invest in a gaming rig if I we're you. This rig they're talking about will set you back about 2k. And LORD knows the gamers are way cheaper on PC. I just got 6 games today for $5. One of them was Battlefield 3. You can't go wrong with that bro'ham.
@zeph. I would have to see how planet side2 runs on the ps4. If its shit then I will invest in a PC. Hate to be a buzz kill but publishers are going to invest in what they feel will get them most bang for their buck and so far its consoles.
Awesome, they are using a Corsair C70 Vengence.
Noticed that too. Corsair is probably my favorite case maker. Rocking their Obsidian 650D myself.
Nice. I just looked up that case just now. It's definitely a nice buy and reminds me slightly of the R4 by Fractal. What's your specs man? Are you going full lighting with LED's or just keeping it simple and clean?
i7-2600k @ 4.4ghz 8Gb RAM GTX 780 2x OCZ Vertex 3 SSD (Raid 0) 1.5TB HDD No LEDS and kept it clean and simple. That's the main reason I went with the 650D also.
I have the same Case but in Military Green i7-3770k OC 16Gb RAM AMD 7970 OC 128 SSD 2TB HDD Corsiar H100 Extreme Water Cooling Corsair 750WT PSU Asus P8Z77-V LX2 MOBO Neon Blue Fans (just Added,Changing as look Crap) LG 24" 3D Monitor Roccat Kave Headset Plantronic Wireless Headset Roccat Kone+ mouse R8 Keyboard. http://lookpic.com/O/i2/806...
I would never blow $4000 on a PC just to play BF 4
You actually really don't need to honestly. The PC at gamescom and other conventions are built towards the idea of SLI and other configurations that aren't really necessary, but are fun to look at. Meaning they may have a lot of LED case fans, a lot of graphics cards that have SLI attached to them, when in reality having just a single one uses up less energy and just buying a better one in general is better. They also have higher case fans which cost around 200-300 dollars and so on. I think you get the point. Battlefield 3 could be easily played on a 1,200 dollar desktop or even less if you have a room that's friggin ice cold.
They show these expensive rigs because the parts are given for free by the manufacturers of the part. what better way to promote your gear than showing it in a custom BF machine playing BF4. @Murad BF3 can be played on a £400 machine, £1,200 to play BF3 is over kill big time, or did you mean BF4?
Your comment shows just how little you know about shopping for and building PC's.
I'm not entirely understanding this getup. The C70 is around 140 bucks. Then it has SLI and my guess being that it's not EVGA, but more so AMD, but why not just get a better graphics card in general. I really wish this article told us the exact specs rather than providing a picture and having us guess the specs.
I'll settle with the PS4 version that looks the same. Aw man I can't run it at 120FPS in 4K. Darn.
No you'll be playing it at 1600p 30fps @ Medium settings on PS4. Darn.
So it's almost as powerful as the PS4.
Ahahahaa.... that was a joke, right?
The level of delusion on this site grows daily
atleast with call of duty as bad as the graphics are atleast they dont try to show pc graphics and try to pass it off as console graphics
because COD looks bad on everything lol no point in getting high end pcs when it would look as rubbish as a $200 laptop.
" The graphics cards alone sport 6 GB of GDDR5 RAM " Hmmmmmm funny, doesn't DICE and AMD know that going with DDR3 RAM plus some eRAM thrown in would have been the better choice for those graphics cards ? I mean everybody round here knows its superior to GDDR5 RAM in that it has less latency and such. DICE and AMD what a bunch of ametuers, hell even MS knows that would have been the way to go.
wow, just wow...I really hope everything you said is parody because otherwise I feel very bad for you.
If u call facts pardody then so be it. Fact, the high end PC theyre are using for BF4 has GDDR5 RAM on its graphics card. Fact, PS4 is using GDDR 5 RAM in their console. Fact, all you X1 fanboys keep saying that GGDR3 RAM + eRAM is actually better than GDDR5. So that would mean DICE and AMD know less about the subject than MS and you fanboys. Now you can tell me if im lying.
You are such a fucking derp. Almost all PCs run GDDR5 for graphic cards and DDR3 system RAM. Xbone doesn't have GDDR5 for graphics, and PS4 doesn't have DDR3 for system. I guess you read over this sentence in the article as well. " In addition, the PC has an 8-core AMD CPU and 8 GB of DDR3 RAM."
Yeah the PS4 and XB1 versions will not be playing it maxed out, not a chance. My PC Spec: Intel Core i5 2500K @ 4GHz Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 @ 1.1/6GHz 16GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1.6GHz 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD (Windows) 240GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD (Steam) 2TB Western Digital Green HDD (Steam) 1TB Western Digital Green HDD (Everything else) I can max out BF3 at 1080p with 4xAA at 60Fps Oh and in total cost about £1200 converted to USD $1850 however we get charged higher prices in the UK, have higher Taxes and don't get rebates. So I'd say $1500 for my PC if build in USA Edit: Just priced a PC with almost identical specs for $1214.87 was $1373.90 before rebates and discounts. We in the UK get shafted YAY
TABSF, you do know that the PS4 cpu pushes more gflops then a i5 2500k don't you. I know i have the same cpu. Topend is 94gflops for that cpu, PS4 cpu is 104gflops. 7870 is very close to PS4 gpu. I'm guessing BF4 will be 60fps on PS4 at 1080p with it's own aa solution.
You've got to be kiddi- Nope. Not even worth it.
I'm sorry but did you just say that. GFLOPs is a computational calculation, doesn't mean its got higher performance. AMD FX 8350 Piledriver was their flagship CPU it has about double the performance of the AMD Jaguar found in PS4 and XB1. Pretty much every Intel Core i5 since 2010 is better than AMD FX 8350, so how will a laptop/ low end desktop CPU compete with that?
Hopefully I don't have issues running it, I7 2600K with 8 GB Ram and SSD drives, dual Graphic cards in SLI mode. But when BF3 launched I had crashes until they patched the game. This and Titanfall look good.
well whatever platform you play on PS4, X1, PC. we all can enjoy the epicness that is BF4!
High-end: Radeon HD 7970 2 GB ($349) Mid-range: Radeon HD 7950 2 GB ($249) My 7970 is actually 3GB just like 7950 But nice to see a AMD Showcased for once instead of Nvidia.
So I'd have to spend a few thousand dollars to play video games. I'm much smarter than that! I'd never, NEVER spend that much money just to get the best graphics possible on a video game. Which arent that much more noticeable to justify spending $2500 more than the coat of a new PS4 That's absurd and only morons would do such things.
You firstly don't need any of the cards I've stated above to play BF4 and certainly not need spend crazy money. This was a showcase PC to show partnership with EAs BF4 partnership with AMD called promoting while tryin to sell AMD products. A midrange card would suffice with a little tuning in graphics settings.
Thanks for the reply. I wasn't aware of that and neither am I "educated" enough about all the PC jargon, specs, GPUs etc to understand most of the talk about it. When I read an article like this one intend to believe it and run with that opinion. I've tried PC gaming and never got hooked into it ya know? I he we all enjoy gaming no matter the console of choice, or rig. Happy gaming hiredhelp.
@supes 24. Cheers man if only others are like you :)
I just built a PC with an 8 core AMD CPU and a 7950. :)
Damn dude I was planning on building a PC with an FX 8350 and a single Radeon HD 7950. I hope it will get the job done for BF4
You should! Great rig going into next gen!
If you are going with an AMD graphics card, you should wait for the 8000 series. It is supposed to be out right around the same time as the new consoles.
Yea I got my 7950 for only 220$ brand new with 3GB GDRR5. It will last well into next gen and by the time I might want to upgrade the 9000 series will be cheaper.
Can I have it when they're done?
For DICE PC is the main platform. The XB1 and PS4 versions won't max it out and I'm getting the PS4.
