So you are telling me no 64 player rush?! That'd be epic
Just got the online pre order and dling the drivers. My user name is catnipkiller or catnapster.
I found rush in BF3 a little more enjoyable than rush in BC2. Maybe it's just the fact you can really stay behind cover more or maybe that the game is more dependent on guns rather than noobtubes.
Or maybe it was because you had no choice and it was love it or leave it.
That is possible. Once the Caspian servers were open I didn't play rush again.
I found (as some poster said above) that it was good to have both maps. Playing Metro over and over again was boring, but so was Caspian imo. Caspian was a bit more enjoyable but I would hate it if the game only had one type.
The first thing that people made a fuss over in the server docs is "Every BF3 PC player has exactly one EA account. The player can then have one or more soldier names."
Don't get your hopes up...
You only get 1 soldier.
I wonder if this is enough for maxing out the game?
why then was there a "soldiers" (notice the s) menu in battlelog during the beta? i'm just wondering whether that is your best guess or you know for a fact somehow?
In the spirit of BF I remember this and how it made me really want to make bf movies and I did! Awesome vid , not sure how many of you have seen it. enjoy!
It should do just fine if the beta was anything to judge by even with only high settings being available the way 6950's tore through it Ultra should be fine and steady at 60 FPS also are your 6950's at stock clocks? Also I run 3DMark11 and get a score nearly 1000 points under you with the processor and card setup should I be concerned about that?
I think everything comes down to crossfire support but it all depends on what you consider fluid when maxxed out. I would rather drop a few settings to keep my FPS @ 80-100 rather than maxxed out @ 50 FPS.
Also your cores peaked @ 81c
Pretty sure he was being facetious. As far as your score goes, among other things, your system specs say your 2600 is only at 3.4MHz.
Hmmmm OC time i guess. And that teaches me to look carefully at the picture next time lol
Your system is great, overclocked 2600K with dual 6950's should be more then enough, not sure how well BF3 scales in crossfire though.
I should be able to max it out with my single 6970, as the beta on Ultra with my GTX 470 ran great, granted it was not 60 frames great.
The retail version is supposed to include tessellation though and that might be the breaking point for most modern DX11 cards.
I wanna see if i can run this game with everyting maxed but aa. I also wonder if this game is more cpu or gpu baced.
The beta utilized multiple threads/cores, didn't check how much GPU usage i was getting though.
It also seemed to have had a lot of missing details visually so i think in the retail version the GPU usage will be higher overall, especially with the DX11 features.
Yeah, in LinX, but I am just using an H70, with the in-line resistors in place, so not maximum cooling the H70 offers, either. Frankly, I'm perfectly happy with those temps, as during gaming the CPU is usually mid-60's.
Did you miss the post from DICE saying Ultra needed 580 SLi? There was no "Ultra" in the beta. I did put in 25 hours on the beta, and notice ZERO difference between High and Ultra, so I'm not so quick to say a single card will be fine, at all.
Actually, no, I'm not be facetious at all. Don't forget I'm also an Eyefinity user, so my "requirements" are going to be far more than the average user. I'm seriously considering dual 6990's, or 4 6950's...but if I go with four, I want four matching cards. Not liek I can afford either option right now, anyway :
Cadaveca if you get dual 6990's I would honestly have to worship your pc
I'd actually prefer four separate GPUs so I have a nice eight-slot-thick slab of GPU goodness.
good news everyone!!!
Due to the company i bought the game from f**king up - I could have my copy of BF3 by tomorrow!!!
