Min frames are what matter, I ran dual 5850's and even with a single 6950 my min frames are higher than the dual setup.
How is that possible. A single 5850 is ALMOST as fast as a single 6950

A faster system memory bus will help those minimum framerates.

True, but I still like the looks of that for my dual 6850s..slightly less powerful than 5850s but better scaling (hopefully such shines in this game).

How is that possible. A single 5850 is ALMOST as fast as a single 6950
Speaking of scaling...

An education is more important then any game you will ever play.

However,
If its an educational game you be playing then thats a different story.

People fail at life exams because they spend too much time glued to Warcraft or just computer games in general.
More BF3 talk and less Life Coaching, I say...

My 5850's had a way higher peak and a higher average. I'm just assuming it's something to do with CF vs Single card.

A faster system memory bus will help those minimum framerates.
I don't got a black edition proc, I've ran as high as 280 FSB, right now I'm at 250.

It would seem to me that the map is also a good choice to get the "COD" crowd interested in BF3....no? They might not like a full on war with planes helis and huge open maps like us "adults" do. :)

It also gives them a change to show off light effects such as flashlights and light sources you can destroy to those who have not seen that yet. It also gives the alpha players a comparison point so they can provide feed back on improvements they notice. I was sure the Alpha and beta would run the same map, but many were hoping for a second map to play on as well.

Makes sense, especially the Alpha to Beta part. 3D spotting was all funky, some lights couldn't be shot out, I don't think destruction was completed yet, and ground had no tesselization. So should be interesting for those that got to play it before, wish I could compare, but didn't get a chance to play myself.

It makes sad knowing that the retail version will probs be 10x more demanding than the alphatrial. On the alphatrial I was getting about 93-113 fps on average @ 1920x1080 D:

As long as I get 60+ fps at max, I will be a happy camper. (Not that I camp in game or anything lol)

Well at least my Two 5850s is faster than 1 580 :p

http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l227/GSVHammer/General/BC21920.png

..so maybe I can play at Max Settings

of course BFBC2 is using the old Frostbite engine, hopefully this picture can be the same when BF3 comes out, (wishful thinking)
I think that frostbite uses more CPU than people normally credit. I don't know what that test setup was, but I have yet to see my minimum drop below 75 on my 580. usually hovers between 90-110. (rig in specs)


if my min is below 60, I will likely pick up a second card. we will see.

If you were happy with how it looked, then I wouldn't be worried since you had some frames to spare. Should allow you to use some of that extra eye candy that will be available.

If you were happy with how it looked, then I wouldn't be worried since you had some frames to spare. Should allow you to use some of that extra eye candy that will be available.
I also remember reading one of the DICE tweets stating that "If you can play BC2 just fine, you'll be able to play BF3" Something along those lines. So this brings some comfort.

I thought I did too, no one else seemed to remember I thought I was crazy lol ;3 If the engine is close enough It'll be fine. If I need to bring down the AA down to 2x it's fine. I just dont want to have to bring it all the way down to low with shadows off to have it run at a decent res.

A Q&A with BF3 Global Community Manager Daniel Matros (zh1nt0) on a public teamspeak with the German community, and details of the discussion from the EAUK Forums have exposed some new unconfirmed details regarding Battlefield 3 and the release of the BF3 Beta next week on September 29th.

  • You can not UPDATE alpha client you need to re-download the new Beta Client.

Are you going to whisper in his ear, "I'll cut you so bad, you'll wish I didn't cut you so bad"?

No way. He should say that stuff in German when the Nazi was slowly plunging the knife into the Jewish soldier in Saving Private Ryan.

Or you could just broadcast this over VOIP

Well.....If you fail exams because you were playing BF3 instead of revising like you should - thats BF3 related talk IMO.

At least you can look back and say what a great game BF3 was in style with a big red 'F' for Fail stamped on your forehead

It makes sad knowing that the retail version will probs be 10x more demanding than the alphatrial. On the alphatrial I was getting about 93-113 fps on average @ 1920x1080 D:

As long as I get 60+ fps at max, I will be a happy camper. (Not that I camp in game or anything lol)
Ummm no it won't. The alpha trial was a incomplete game, but it was the full core engine. The retail product will be only slightly higher demand than the alpha and beta tests due to the engine simply being used more. It would never be even twice as demanding.

Unless they have an ultra crazy graphics setting up their sleeves like The Witcher 2 and Ubersampling :laugh:
