HardwarePal : The team goes one step further and tests the new BF4 Open Beta on three monitors pumping those pixels to the max.
Hmmm..... seems cool. Strikes me as more of a novelty than anything that would enhance gameplay tho. Maybe I'm wrong. Can't wait for this game either way.
Increased FOV and having peripheral vision is quite handy in a game like BF4.
pretty dumb if you ask me...
It's only dumb cuz you can't do it ;-)
no its dumb becuase its not needed only stupid non esports players who go for 100 inch tvs would want this
Not impressed. At the AMD press event they had Dirt 3 running at 12K 60 FPS.
Dodgy footage of a naked guy playing BF4. No thanks. I mean how are you supposed to show off how good it looks across 3 monitors via a camcorder? It's like the adverts that show off how awesome a TV plays. The fabulous TV is only going to look as good as the TV the advert is played on.
Yeap thats the truth, will do a better one with some recording software at ultra settings. Thanks for the headsup El lanf.
Oh come on, anyone would have to admit this is cool. I game exclusively on consoles, but admit myself that this is very cool. Just the field of view alone would be worth it. If I could connect 3 PS4s together to do this, I would. Can you imagine 3 60" TVs connected together, to do this? It would be amazing.
As nice as it is, it's not particularly new or BF4 exclusive. It's also possible to have a 6 monitor set-up. It'd be pretty insane doing that with 4K monitors. You need about 3 titans or whatever future top-of-the-range card is to do it though,
A single Titan at this point is struggling to run the BF4 Beta on Ultra at 1080p. 4K would be impossible right now. For a single monitor.
My point was more how insane the requirements would be not whether it's actually currently possible. It was a slightly off topic offshoot of what WOULD be impressive. Whilst running 3 monitors requires a lot of grunt, it's not a particularly impressive feat to see someone do.
Lol the dude spent all his money on the setup and now he cant afford a shirt.
Pandehz I wouldnt mind you sending me a few bucks :). We have been benchmarking on this x79 system ,am3+ systems , a few different Haswell systems as well as interchanging the gtx680s , gtx580s , single gtx680,single gtx580 , 7970 ghz , 7950 , 770 4gb etc etc. I think the shirt here is irrelavant. :)
There is a rumour that this might be possible on PS7
....and Xbox 9.
Forza has had multiscreen support since the first Forza on the original Xbox but you needed 3 Xboxes and 3 copies of the game to do it. On Xbox 360 you can do it with 2 copies if you buy one digitally. Here's a video of Forza 4 on three monitors: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I game this way on BF3 and other games, naturally looking at my side monitors (peripheral) is worth it all in itself
"OMG Console 720p 60fps, true next gen" "6040x1080p? Not impressed."
I'll probably get -5 bubbles for saying so, but that is so true on this site, XD lol
Does this say it's running off of two 680s in sli?!?! Wow! The 680 is still holding its own, even if it's two. Impressive.
Its even playable on Ultra but you have to cut down on MSAA, as maxed out (x4) it bottlenecks because I was one of the early adaptors and got the 2gb versions. The 4gb versions in sli should be ok , but no one in there crazy mind would play BF4 MP in ultra and 4xMSAA on these resolutions and expect to be competitive.
