All settings set to low - great performance. I've pre-orderd the game just because I was able to get it for $40. Otherwise, EA can suck ....

in other words the bean counters wouldn't let the programmers fix memory leaks because "it works."

Fine with an i3, but need that 8GB. Seems a bit odd.

At least memory pricing has come down again, for those that might need it.

Nearly 8? GTA V (for me) uses over 9 GB and hover in 10 GB quite often. It's the only game I've observed to use that much RAM on my system. Dragon Age Inquisition uses just over 7 GB and every other game I have uses 3-4 GB.

exactly what I was thinking when I first saw the title. How poorly optimized is this game?

They have 10x the budget, 20x the sales, 50x the technology and resources. Engines built specifically for that game to make development easy.

And all the hard work they put in results in a game without singleplayer campagin, no space battles, less than half of the maps we used to have

 

Yeah. You have game engines that used to take up maximum of about 15,000 lines of code. Now you have ones that run into millions (Cryengine = ~1mil, Unreal = ~3 mil) because of the sheer amount of stuff they are trying to achieve to mimic real life. Instead of games that used to reuse a vast majority of assets created, you have people that make non-generic assets that are quite possibly used only once in the game. Hence you get significantly more detailed and unique environments. Oh, then you used to have 20 people on a dev team, but now you have teams of 100's (some studios 1000's) of people, all who deserve and demand to be paid a salary worth living on. Oh, but you cannot charge more for your game to match inflation rates and the sheer amount of people that have to be paid, because consumers have it stuck in their head that game development is somehow cheap (keywords: it isn't, and costs have been driven to astronomical amounts). And to cap it all off, you have release dates that make the sheer amount of work even that much more steep to climb. This is in part due to higher ups, and also in part due to the consumers themselves constantly demanding something new from the franchises they love.

 

 

Dude, there is a ton that goes into game development these days that wasn't there even 5 years ago. The sheer scale is astoundingly much larger than it used to be. And if you want things that are newer and nicer, and more like real life, then don't complain when something has to give. Because part of the reason this happens is due to consumers themselves.

I think the issue is that the recommended CPU is something that came out less than 2 months ago.

It's an i3. Low end of current gen - you can easily effectively match it for this engine with a closer to midrange processor from previous gens.

I think I know why, BF3 actually loads from your pagefile. Meaning if you disable your pagefile the game might not even load, at least it didn't in my experience. Try setting a pagefile on your ssd and see what happens.
