PC Games shows you the differences between low- and ultra-settings in Battlefield 3. Check out their graphics comparison.
Yes, PC is better. But we all knew that.
Did you even read the title or click on the link? Its a PC comparison between the two settings. EDIt- that website is horrible. Its inundated with ads that take up half the screen.
That the pc is able to upgrade its abilities with a little money;) Otherwise it wouldn’t stand a chance against the ps3 or xbox 360 with its low settings! OMG, it Looks gawd awful.
Army_of_Darkness I'm actually really surprised by just how bad the low settings are. It looks like the sort of graphics you got when some developers were still complaining that the ps3 was too hard to work on. The high settings look great though.
What ads? AD BLOCK PLUS!
I like my PC <3 High settings is all good :P, can run ultra but framerate is like 20 - 30 :/ Comparing these to xbox and ps3 is painful. But on the bright-side it still looks good as! DICE you have done a very good job <3
Failing to read the article is a fail
[anti-PC elitist comment here]
Lol, he's right, but got the wrong article.
Ok, what you gotta understand is that an article is more than just a title...
This is Bi-Failing. 1. Failing to read the article before commenting. 2. Failing to read the god damn title before commenting. It's as if Lugia 4000 stop reading at Battlefield 3 PC: Graphics before spewing some canned knee jerk reaction.
The slider is more useful than side-by-side comparisons. The jaggies are horrible on the low side and there is dust on the ultra. One more day to go!
The jaggies seem to be in extreme abundance. I'm wondering if this is from image compression, not the game itself. Most of the textures don't look that bad on Low. I'll probably be running around there with 2aa. I don't mind putting off upgrading until necessary.
No game looks that jaggy on my monitor. Must be compression.
No AA :( ouch. The battlefield games need AA, they have a lot of square flat edges. 2 X AA would clear up the very worst so it wasn't quite so eye stabbing. I believe in the beta an 8800GT was enough to squeeze on a little AA on low
Hopefully my 6950s in XFire can handle this on Ultra. I may have to flash them to 6970s.
I think you should be fine. I have dual 6990m's in CF. And they handled Ultra in the beta around 50 fps... Granted, all of the polishing of the 'true' Ultra was likely not in the beta, but I'm still expecting 40+ fps.
You realise those dual 6990m's you paid for (oh the thousands of dollars) are equivalent to downclocked desktop 6870's
u mad arjman? Im pretty sure he knows what he has.
i played beta on ultra with my 5990
wtf? dual 6990's only got you 50 fps? my single 6950 unlocked got me 50 fps on ultra. i dont understand?
THERE WAS NO ULTRA IN THE BETA PEOPLE! Germans PC Mag said you need a GTX 580 to max it out in 1080p an get around 30 FPS. But if you do so BF3 looks like a damn Trailer! Simply amazing. They called it Avatar of VideoGames.
@ gamesmaster He said 6990m. I'm not too sure but doesn't m mean mobility? I.e. weaker than desktop versions
InNomeDiDio they're just comparing their obviously well off builds going "lol i don't know, will it run it on ultra???"
I was able to get around 60 FPS running BC2 on max settings. DICE seems to have an affinity for AMD cards. I'm banking that Battlefield 3 will be just as optimized.
6990m's are pretty crappy dude. A regular 6990 will push well over 60fps with everything maxed.
I have a 5850...and it's a little concerned right now.
I have that too. Run it on high no problems. Never lower than 30 FPS.
Nope better go drop another 500 bones.
In all honesty, I'm playing battlefield 3 right now on ultra everything, with only crossfire 5830s, and I am getting a solid 50 - 60fps, albeit, my cards are overclocked on both core to 1000mhz and mem at 1250mhz each, but yah, I think the recommended requirement of needing a gtx580 to really max out the game is complete bs.
i really hope my ps3 phat and my tv can run battlefield 3, otherwise i would have to buy a ps3 slim *sarcasm
Best comment ever lol! +Bubble. I have a pretty High spec rig but timing on this post was sublime. I had to call my friend and tell him about it. lolololololololololololool!!! !!!!!!!
Now that was funny! +bubbles But i would be cool to run two PS3 in SLi configuration!
not much difference to your average skittles fan
