I think the pictures are funny
We are just playing people, Are you really that mad?
Really! its a club house were no post count is. OMGWTFBBQ
I quoted Hardcop trolling. Problem?
All unnecessary pics make me sad.
lol, Pitler! Or is it Huten?
Are we bored today boy's ?
More like Hitler.
extremely! Wished I had a laptop that would atleast play BF3 on low. I cant even start the game cause I have a DX9 card
You shoud look at the picture again.
This is Vladmir Putin.
This is Adolf Hitler
That photo is obviously Vladolph Pitler.
Doesn't use MSAA.
Did not include 6970 in outdoor results. But they did use a Asus Mars II Dual GTX 580, lol.
The 6970 has a frame rate increase of 17.373 FPS going from ultra to high outdoors.
The 580 has a frame rate increase of 14.097 FPS going from ultra to high outdoors.
It's not clear what CPU they are using for their benchmarks. However, they show that the x6 can be a bottleneck.
And when was the last time any AMD GPUs showed any wins on PCGH? Honestly, I want to know, link me.
I ain't saying that H's review is flawless but when I look at the other reviews I find concerns. Oh well, lets see what surfaces on release.
Dannibus do you know where you got that Danger sign on your avatar.
I'd like the fullsize picture of it. That is so great.
That's the only one I found. I googled it up. There's probably bigger ones in the wild, but you'll have to dig through Google to find it.
Sign like that is easy to make so I just made one up quick, enjoy!
Link to fullsize one
And small preview of it
lol, one above as well, probably the original.
Vladamir Putin couldn't look more Russian unless he had a bear crawling out of his ass.
Just wanted to quickly point out that Techspot's review states, or at least implies via its wording, that they were using the Ultra and High presets. As they are presets, the game... and I quote from the testing methodology page...
"When set to Ultra every setting is maxed out with the exception of anti-aliasing post which is set to medium. The anti-aliasing deferred settings is set to 4xMSAA while anisotropic filtering is set to 16x. Other quality settings such as texture, shadow, effects, mesh, terrain and terrain decoration are all set to Ultra.
The Ultra preset was extremely demanding, so we also tested using the High quality preset. This turned anti-aliasing deferred off and left the anti-aliasing post settings on medium. All other visual quality settings as detailed above are turned to high. We'll be looking for an average of 60fps for stutter-free gameplay."
In other words, the High preset is what is turning off MSAA, not the tester. Furthermore, anything the tester did change from the preset would thus change the "Graphics Quality" setting in the screenshots to 'Custom' from 'Ultra' or 'High', indicating tickering.
I'm not saying the techspot review is perfect either, but it certainly does seem to be the data with the most integrity in that group of links. Even more so because it compares different CPU performance (a lot of people, including myself, still have those legendary i7 920s and didn't have a reason to upgrade to every testers poster child Sandy Bridge) really well, and is something not even my preferred GPU testers (Anandtech/Tom's) do often enough.
Finally, for the record, all of these performance reviews both linked and elsewhere while interesting for the curious, are all rubbish to the objective. With the beta comprised of one map (I would've loved to see data on Caspian Borders, though I can imagine the difficulty a tester would've had pulling that off), incomplete Ultra engine implementation, rushed Beta drivers from both nVid and AMD and a bug filled play environment with map clipping, unoptimized foliage and animation glitches abound, none of this means anything until its November, nVid and AMD put out WHQL drivers (or at least further optimized preview ones) and a comparison is done between the FPS results of a tight Squad Deathmatch versus a 64 player Conquest map taking place in the desert or urban environments EA were so happy to market in Fault Line and E3.
I'll be particularly interested in an analysis of what exactly 'Anti-Aliasing Post' does exactly and why it remains at 'Medium' when Anti-Aliasing Deferred' itself is turned 'Off.'
I'm an extremely avarage player (might have something to do with me never playing these kinds of games ), should I join your club????
Where's the damn tesselation?
Does your new card play the game decent?
I have been playing BF3 and its super fun. I have been playing on Xbox 360 though, I can easily get kills on the console(22K/10D), I play as Engineer, but whenever I play these games on pc i get killed all the time.
Its better on PC /end troll comment
LOL Yea I love playing the game too! I finally started using the smaw and RPG
It's an early build, tessellation should come with the final retail version.
As multiple people have mentioned, this Beta really isn't to test all the game features on peoples hardware (if that was the case then they have a LOT of work to do)
Im thinking the new tessellation that will be in the release will kills 5xxx series cards
