So as per the topic I just want to know if other fellow AMD user'r how their set up works in BF3.
I'm kinda having second thought of upgrading to either X6 or FX( but need new mobo if FX)
I know Intel will give me gaming CPU but I'm a AMD user, I get the satisfaction if in on AMD
Hope to see in below formatReso:Game SettingsFPS min-ave-max
High (custom-no AA-motion blur off)
11.11 with CAP 2
I have the same setup. 6870 CFX with an X6. I play at 1080p, high with 2xMSAA and FXAA. I target for a locked 60fps.
I am bottlenecked on 64 man servers. My 6 cores at 3.5GHz are above 90% and the framerate goes below 60. GPU usage is not maxed out. I am fine of 32 man servers.
I am not sure there is an AMD product to play BF3 without issue. I think some 2500k are also having 64 man server lag.
In my opinion, stick with AMD for the GPU, buy a 2500k or wait for Ivy bridge. Best bang for the buck.
