Ouch, dual core users are taking the old path of the single core CPU, forced upgrading or terrible performance, even with high-end gpu.

Good thing i put money into an i7 when i did, wont be upgrading for awhile still. I'd be pissed having to build a new system just so BF3 runs.

With you on that, nearly opted for a Q6600, Q9850 or E8600. Decided to wait and ended up with an i7 at very nice pricing. Been more than satisfied since :)

It's nice to have some concrete evidence that those idiots who thought BF3 could be run at 500FPS were just that, idiots.

TABSF2634d ago

That 500FPS screenshot was with minimum settings.

Anyway good to see these benchmarks, makes it a lot clearer.
With my RIG I'm possible looking between 65-80FPS on maximum quality settings 1920×1080 DirectX 11 depending on scaling of course.

Looks like I'll be maxing it pretty much out then :)

Nice video. I hope there is a lot of variance in the maps.

Some tighter ones like Oasis, and some massive ones like Heavy Metal.

The main thing is the big maps need more checkpoints/flags. So you don't get bored walking.

The scale of the maps is going to be the deciding factor on making this game stand out from CoD.

peowpeow2633d ago

Not necessarily the 'deciding' factor, but still a factor. The scale has always been there, confident this game won't differ
