    Wrong. Tessellation killing anything 5000 based will depend entirely on what AMD does with its driver-side "AMD Optimized" initiative, which we have yet to see the fruits of.

    Other than Civ5, they never really had a game that needed this initiative to do anything, but considering the large marketing push nVid is doing for GTX 580s in Battlefield 3, this may be the game that makes that team start earning their paycheques.

    Very well actually. Everything on high and it's smooth as pie.

    That doesn't solve the fact that I suck. :p

    My 460 plays on ultra, so there is no method to the madness of how well this game runs. I have a feeling it is very dependent on the CPU (actually I know it is).

    Console play is much slower, I tried it out last night. I'm assuming you are just camping? Seems easy to hold a great KD on consoles if you do that.

    Thats nice to hear, but doubtful on news. People just figured since you can't squad manage in the beta, that that was it, none in game either. Everyone thinks betas mean demo now, just look at the last page in the thread :laugh:

    It's not consistent for me though. Some games I can crank up EVERYTHING to max and it's smooth, but some games I have to lower AA/AF/whatever for it to be smooth.. Dunno why.

    I've played it both with Crossfire On and Off and I believe I'm using the Auto graphic selections which put everything on High except for Texture Quality, which went Ultra. I'm only using the 11.10 preview they released for BF3 and no additional CAPs as was recommended. And my 920 is only at 3.33GHz.

    Not sure what to tell you. I'll edit this post once I've confirmed exactly what my specs are.

    Lot of reviewers that reviewed the game for mid/high end setups at the end of the reviews said that it was pointless using the beta as a benchmark as the games performance in general is so inconsistant.

    Better to wait for the finished product

    lol! I'm pretty average at best as well and I'd like to join the club.
    I just started playing BFBC2 a few weeks ago and I love it. Old CS player, I haven't really played an online shooter since.

    Keeping strict to presetting(s) from a video card driver is more common then with games I would think. It should have been tested with MSAA as illustrated here. How else would any reader define "demanding" for that game if there is no numerical data to show the reader? Furthermore, I could understand MSAA not being used at 2560 resolution but at 1920 and 1680 some of the video cards should have been capable of offering playable results. This is why I pointed out there was no AA used.

    But like I said before, lets wait until the final release to see what happens. There are few things not mentioned yet that I would like to know. For example:
    -Results using MLAA/SRAA/FXAA/MSAA. IQ vs Performance, which will be better (if any are used).
    -Will any of the drivers from AMD or Nvidia use multithreaded rendering? If so will we see any performance improvements?
    -Does having Vram over 1gig make a difference in performance?
    -etc
