bf4 performance vs bf3

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, so im pretty sure I want to get bf4 but i want to make sure it will run well.

I ran bf3 at almost maxed settings except for shadows and AA ( dont really care for them much).


hopefully performance will be similar? the game doesnt look MILES ahead of bf3 in quality.

There arent any demos so I cant try it myself.

thoughts?

Well list your system specs so we know. BF4 runs much better on Win 8.1 for most people than BF3 ever ran on Win 7, including myself.

i can run it fine and have vsync locked at 60fps. everything maxed out but i am using fxaa which is not very demanding at all.  ofcourse this is at 1080p. my system specs are up to date on my sig. the game does not look much different than bf3. lighting and weather seem to be better weather especially. a bit more destruction and better explosions and things like that. overall its a pretty nice game.

 

 


PS: With vsync off i get around 110-80fps. rarely goes bellow 70fps. seems to run really nice.

Campaign will run fine with some combination of medium/high settings. Ultra settings will be way out of reach though.

CPU is fine for campaign. May need to OC some for multiplayer

i would at least upgrade the gpu. you can get gtx 680 for a good price used now. and the deal of the year seems to be the hd7970 cards. for around $220 you can find one which is an incredible deal and probably the best fps/dollar that you will find today.

i would also overclock the cpu if possible. would be nice to know your entire system specs.

I have a laptop >_<. Well I often use MSI Afterburner to OC. I Mean it can't be THAT much more of a hog than bf3. Unless they screwed up optimization

ah a laptop =/

 

no the game runs about the same as bf3. i think it is a little bit smoother on my setup but i might just be seeing things.

save a little bit of cash and build your self a gaming pc with used parts. no need to spend a ton of money on a great setup now in days. picking off parts from this forums and ebay you can make a gaming pc that will pretty much chew every game at 1080p for less than $600. I am not a fan of overclocking gpu on laptops. the gains are minimal and usually have more stability problems than performance gains.
