Don't Let Your Powerful Cards Sit Idle while Gaming.

If you have the horsepower use it in BF4 and other games!

I suspected I had everything on Ultra, which I did, but then followed with Cyro999's suggestion of upping the Resolution Scale from 100% to 145%.

I get in the game and low and behold everything is so sharp and the view distance is so clean that people without this capability will be handicapped in game. The screen looked like it could have been 1600p or something, it almost seemed photo realistic!!!

And look at the pics below, the r9 290s were sitting around doing nothing at 1200p but once you ask more of them by upping the Resolution Scale they produce at a consistent GPU usage while my experience remained butter smooth!

I went from this...


To this!

Just watched the video - holy freaking crap.
They're taking the piss out of a guy, that really loves watching them - and complaint about him spawn camping with a TV missile!?
There's a reason I haven't watched one of their videos for ages - those stupid mother....
Seriously - absolutely ridiculous. I don't blame my lil cousin getting annoyed (he gets annoyed too easily at this game though - even more than me! haha)
So he should have just held back his emotions, but the disgusting reaction to those 20+ yr old acting like absolute idiots - and playing with little to no skill - absolutely brilliant.
I would have locked to rock up in that game and teach them a few fair things.

Note: If you ever get a Rivalcampnoob or vehiclecap in your game - just c4 + buggy / boat them - and they'll soon leave the game (happened to me several times now, funny to see them rage quit, poor noobs)

You and your cousin really seem to hate these Youtubers. And your cousin complains a lot in chat, lol. I wouldn't call it camping if he's assisting the team, but to each his own. lol.

PS - not being a fanboy. You just hate on them whenever they come up.

Assisting the team? CA isn't won by camping thumb.gif
Also why would I "hate youtubers" - when I've been longer than 90% of the YouTubers, on YouTube? Being a Youtuber myself.

I just hate some of these idiots - mainly those that are sell-outs.
Just look at their channels, and ever since that "EA is paying people thing" came out, how many videos have been made by those YouTubers showing flaws in the game.
Oh oh ohhhhh! You show it now, not when it was first released? I wonder whyyyyy!

VRAM? Nvidia cards would be bottlenecked by what you just said to do.
You're on 1080P I presume?

Res scale on 1440p won't be possible (unless you got SLI of those cards) - as it won't cope.

When you stop the enemy from capping the points that shoot missiles to destroy the enemy carrier, it's assisting thumb.gif

And I didn't say "Youtubers". I said "these Youtubers" as in the ones in the video and the ones you called 'Rivalcampnoob' and 'vehiclecap'.

You can try it - you got 3GB VRAM to play with on your 780 - so you should be fine.
Most nvidia cards have only 2GB.
Most AMD ones 3-4GB

I think you're underestimating your WC 780 man - push it! haha

Extrovert you mean?
Not really, almost quite the opposite - I just express my opinion freely. Problem?
