AMD is everywhere.
It's good to see them expanding their 'Gaming Evolved' program. Reminds me of Nvidia's 'The Way It Was Meant To Be Played' program that was used in the past
AMD is the real winner of Next-Gen. They are powering the Xbox One, PS4, WiiU, my current PC and will power my future PC.
Same thing for me, FTFTL. I am making the switch to PC full-time this gen and AMD are my components of choice.
Amd has the hadware but their software support sucks, if your serious about games get an i5 and a gtx 770 and avoid amd, saving a few dollars is going to cost you a lot more with their terrible drivers. The 770 is faster and cheaper than the 7970 anyway, intel cost the same as an fx 8350.
Disagrees from people = have never owned and amd pc, go ahead buy it. You will regret it, there is a reason almost every manufacturer has dropped their cpus in favor of intel.
@hdshatter Terrible drivers? Utter nonsense spread by people who don't even use them. AMD single card drivers are easily on par with Nvidia's, this isn't 5 years ago. Their Crossfire profiles have latency issues but they should be fixed with the an upcoming driver. But in terms of single GPU latency, AMD often beats Nvidia. "The 770 is faster and cheaper than the 7970 anyway" Uhhh, no it isn't. A 7970 at stock yes, but I've yet to see one that won't do 1200Mhz stable with a tiny voltage bump, with some doing it on stock volts. Then the two are about the same at 1080p, but at higher resolutions the 7970 pulls ahead, just like it was with the GTX680, which the GTX770 basically is, just clocked higher. Not to mention the 1GB fewer VRAM, which I bet will hurt like hell come November. And cheaper where? A 7970Ghz can be had for just over £300, I bought one myself 2 weeks ago that also included Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3 Bloody Dragon and Crysis 3. The cheapest GTX770 here in the UK is £329, with no games and only 2GB of VRAM. The 4GB version starts at £429. The disagrees are because you're wrong.
I can't believe people still go on about drivers. Been with AMD since 08 and I've had no problems.
@NioRide "I can't believe people still go on about drivers." Oh, there's a good reason people still go on about that. I've had an HD5870 Mobility for several years now and I can testify that AMD's support for mobile GPU's is downright horrible. AMD has the better price/performance ratio, but I will vouch for Nvidia when it comes to the software.
@hdshatter i agree with you in the GPU part i completely disagree on the CPU part, my friend has a i5 3570k and i have a FX-8350 both of us are using the same card 660Ti and i get sightly better if not the same FPS on various games and my CPU was $50 cheaper than a 3570k but yeah, never buy an ATI they have terrible drivers and usually Nvidia is way better.
If AMD wasn't around. nVidia would have raped PC gamers with its prices... lol And that's why competition is good (sometimes, it has pros and cons ) !
I spent the last decade or so AMD only. From the Athlon XP 1800 to the x2 3800's and ended at the phenom II x4's. I've since switched to Intel and with what AMD's been putting out lately I don't think I'll be switching back AMD had some marvelous chips in all honesty. I never once had any issues with their CPU's. As far as GPU's go the last Nvidia card I owned was was a geforce 5700 fx I still use ATI/AMD The GPU is where people say drivers suck but I've owned an x1800 xt HD3870 HD4890 HD5870 HD6970 currently using an HD7970 I had only a hardware failure with the 4890 and the 5870. Both replaced under warranty. I don't think I've once had some of these AMD driver issues that nvidia users seem experience with their non AMD cards. Control Panel>Uninstall Catalyst Control Center>restart>Install New Driver/CCC>restart Also. Always unintall CCC when upgrading video cards. just shutdown instead of restart and install your new hardware. If I'm gonna drop a few hundred bucks for a new video card. I take the extra 5 minutes to make sure I set it up right.
Let's not forget that cost/performance is massively in AMDs favor... Nvidia doesn't follow thermal rules and that's how they get these slightly better performance boost... nothing that can't be dealt with using a OC version of a card and OC 10 percent more
I'm looking forward to seeing this game maxed out on a high-end PC.
Not sure why anyone would decide to choose current AMD hardware? Obviously it looks like that will change with release of there newer current popular chips that are being used in these systems but remember these are being chosen because there cheaper, not better. If you're experienced with PC's already or look at real world benchmarks on the internet etc AMD/ATI have always played second fiddle & never been able to quite match quality of Nvidia since the beginning of time.
AMD Sapphire Radeon HD 6970 here No Problems!!!!!!!
Its an AMD branded game on PC sooo....hardly expect Nvidia hardware in there. Battlefield 3 was AMD branded too, but it ran better on equivalent Nvidia hardware.
Funny thing is battlefield 4 at launch will probably run better with nvidia, because it takes AMD a week to release a driver for a game that there so called partnered with, whereas nvidia come out with driver updates on launch day or the next day especially if its a popular title. I'm glad amd is around because I do agree it keeps intel and amd prices at reasonable levels. But I won't build a amd rig just because it says its better on paper, and that's just IMHO.
I built AMD/ATI about 4 years ago and slightly had regrets. There were some moments where I wish I had spent an extra 200-300 for intel. Overall though, it's fine.
apart from the cpu which i think intel has the upper hand in, amd wins in everything else most notably the gpu and console market. i think with the boost from the next gen of console gaming if amd focus their cpu's to be optimised specifically for gaming then they will be in a strong position. apart from ready made home pc's which are dying out and high powered editing pc's for people who work in that field (not many) gaming is the biggest reason why people buy pc's all other uses for pc's have shifted to laptops, all-in-ones,mobiles and tablets
This is nice to see pc running bf4 even with new consoles there! PCFTW!!! PS4FTW!!!
but why not on the new "Supercharged PC" called the PS4?
Because it isn't as supercharged as a true high end gaming PC. ;-)
Gaming is going from strength to strength it's absolutely great .
everywhere but in the black
Yeah they are everywhere along with their shitty driver crashes, also in my laptop :@ #REGRET
Yeah, it has nothing to do with Money and Exclusive Partnerships. Nah, it's all about the best performance. The delusion of fanboys...never ceases.
my gtx titan can shit all over this puny game. no challenge here. good to know its going to be the PC version that on the show.
AMD/Intel/Nvidia I've owned all of the above, they're all great, they all have they're pros and cons. Currently using Intel/Nvidia, but AMD is a damn fine company also. Looking forward to seeing this.
lol nvidia seems to be butthurt everywhere
@hdshatter Ive always had AMD/ATI graphics cards. All have served me very well. While there are many nvidias that benchmark better, AMD are just better value. Nvidia are not. Whilst I am not a big PC gamer anymore, even for standard tasks I would choose an AMD. For gaming I would still choose an AMD. Ive had nothing but good experiences with them.
Fantastic! So Battlefield 4 will be looking pretty damn gorgeous!
I expect my eyes to be melted out of my skull if it's running on a computer like that, lol.
I wouldn't expect too much. It's not the hardware that's the issue but BF 4 loos like BF 3.5
Many people say this but at the time the demo was released it was at a very early build; this is why they included assets from BF3 to be placeholders for the final BF4 models. For many game sequels, the early builds of them mostly contain a lot of assets from the previous game.
I would hazard to guess that those are Crossfired 7990s.
That is what they used for the reveal, so likely unless they somehow got 2 8990 samples running smooth.
It would be full of microstutter since its crossfire and then if you fixed amds crappy drivers with radeon pro EA would ban you for cheating because its an injector.
Shut up about your drivers, we get it, 3 comments later, you dont like AMD. I can say the same thing about nVidia. Their drivers always break compatibility and aren't as great as you make them out to be. I have been running AMD since 07 and have had no problems at all.
Don't care how it looks, what will be the specs?
My guess for recommend: i5 or fx 8350 Nvidia: 760ti/AMD 8870 30-40gb of storage space 8gb ram To max it: i5 4670k + 8gb ram + gtx 780/8970 or better
Lmao why did you include Nvidia? They specifically said that they're using AMD.
he added nvidia for those gamers who are running Nividia cards.... a little common sense goes a long ways
The cost to performance ratio with Radeon cards is superior.
But the power consumption is higher. Also, their cards tend to be monstrously huge. People may be riding on the AMD train right now but an Intel and Nvidia PC combo is probably the best currently in terms of performance, support, and power consumption. Also, the best cost to performance card right now is a 660Ti... unless I'm far behind the times (I haven't been keeping up too much recently).
For $399 and GTX 680 performance, I would say GTX 770
7970 and GTX 680 trade blows evenly. With what you're saving on a 7970 you can pick up a really solid SSD for gaming. This is the route I've been having people take when they ask me for new builds
the hd 7950 is about the same price as a 660ti and performs on par with a gtx 670. so for nvidia it is, but over all that goes to the hd 7950
Scoring the exclusivity to console hardware is huge for AMD. My gaming rig is an eyefinity AMD system and I have nothing but positive reviews. The fact that the new consoles run on AMD architecture means smooth crossplatform gaming for all and subsequently smoother ports. Win-win for gamers!
"Win-win for gamers!" Well, not really since that would leave out nvidia fans.
True but Nvidia is a master with drivers--they will cope better than AMD would in their shoes. I'm excited because it may mean more native eyefinity support!
Lets make a quick comparison: Call of Duty® Black Ops II for the Xbox 360™ currently has 1,235,187 players online. Battlefield 3 for the Xbox 360™ currently has 43,000 players. Call of Duty® is a far better game and the people have spoken.
Don't feed the troll people.
I've never seen somebody lose bubbles so fast lol. Before he even started trolling topics he had 5, that was about an hour ago.
Lol this guy is so deluded. How the hell did he manage to lose three bubbles that quickly? He saw me make one comment on a CoD article and he somehow decided that he saw me on "every CoD article" lol. Don't feed him.
Add red lights for speed obviously.
The fact that they don't use ps4 or xbox one to demonstrate the game makes it obvious that the graphics won't be exactly same on consoles. For example: While they will show the demo with 'environment quality' at very high, on the consoles versions it can be at 'medium'
of course they wont.. but if it looks on consoles as good as BF3 or maybe a bit better i will be extremely happy .. that was an awesome looking game already
games are made with pc moron, so its obvious that they wont use the consoles, but the parts will be the same just not in a normal xbox one or ps4 case.
You won't find the parts in that PC in the consoles unless you're paying upwards of two grand. They're using the highest end available, creating a failsafe way of rendering in 4K mode, across multiple screens. Consoles will come nowhere close, and it's already been said that BF4 is 720p @ 60fps for next gen.
Yeah, I think the PS4 version will be generally comparable to the PC version but will run at 1080p/30fps or maybe 720p/30fps (but not both).
And is very good Intel is greedy.
It will start walking at mid-presentation and will kill everybody
I prefer nvidia, except the newest drivers are complete unstable trash.
I've had very poor experiences with AMD GPU's in the past (up till december 2011) so i've gone to Nvidia for now. However, with AMD being in the consoles, i think games may be way better optimized for AMD hardware in the coming years. Might give AMD another go next time i buy a new PC (last chance!).
Good point there... I might get AMD this time around. They also give free games with purchase so its awesome. edit: but Nvidia has better 3D support and I want to buy an Ocullus Rift. hmmmm decisions.
Why do they always have to show it on PC, why can't they show it on PS4.
I don't want to start a console vs. PC war, so I can say that, for example, the PS4's software is still unstable to handle so much in a very important presentation.
