Same with my card, I was quite happy to see that. HBAO is nice but I enjoy the performance boost I get from leaving it off.

Anyone notice much an improvement with MSAA on in gameplay or do you really have to be looking for it at a resolution around 1080 or 1200p?

I'd like to know this too. I left mine on 2x yesterday while I played and only tested 4x for a brief moment because it brought my frames down to the gutters.

I just remembered about that setting. I turned if off and the game looks better. I gained some FPS so win win.

Sad, but not surprising - look how they trumpeted all the GPU Bottle-Necked Testing at the release of BD. Their marketing is suspect.

Core i3 did well in this game as well. Even Athlon II X2 did well

This game is not very CPU-intensive when you play at high resolution. If you buy core i3 2100 + GTX 580 you will propably get higher fps than i7 2600 + GTX 570

I can't say I trust everything about those reviews. Battefield 3 is certainly a cpu intensive game. Not for those of us with the power to handle it very well obviously, but it does take a toll on the cpu.

Even with settings turned down, this game looks fantastic. This game will last well past the next round of computer builds, so higher settings are inevitable for us.

I have my settings lowered to high on everything 8xASF and no AA, hbao on. Might be able to turn hbao off and get some better performance. I need to go figure out what it does first though. Anyway, with those settings, on 3 screens, and in the giant conquest mode servers, I get around 60 a lot of the time. Unfortunately, I cant play across 3 screens right now.

Errr, am I misunderstanding something, or are some of you folks simply overlooking the CPU utilization chart?
While the FPS didn't change much, the 2600k used 34% - crudely put, less than one-and-a-half cores, while the 8150 utilized 46%, which makes it almost 4 cores. Even the 920 utilized only 40% - just above one-and-a-half cores.
How is this "BD doing well"?
Am I missing something here?
