[Official] Battlefield 3 Information & Discussion Thread - Page 726

post #7251 of 52874
I was about to pre-order from Origin, but the "deal" (with ME2 for free) expired, so I'm holding off.

Single GTX 570 (1.25GB version) ran BF3 Alpha flawlessly... at 1920x1200. I don't think we need any more than a 570 unless you want tri-monitor play, which I really don't care for.

the rigs that EA had were running 580s SLI, so i'm not sure you will be able to run it at MAX but that depends on your resolution and how many monitors you're playing the game on..
Yeah, I forgot to mention I am only running a single monitor at 1920 X 1080. I am also considering a 6970. They do scale well, but I prefer a single card because I have so little room between my pci-e slots since I have an x58 board. I'm kicking myself for not getting the asrock instead of the asus even though asus is a better made product....

Yup, AMD cards had better performance than NVIDIA cards in the Alpha (even with the R280 drivers and all), plus, I don't believe they had all those crazy random crashes.

If BF3 ends up being a "AMD Gaming Evolved" title I'm getting a HD 7900 card without blinking.

BFBC2 was an AMD title, and NVIDIA cards (especially Fermi based cards) had all sorts of performance issues up until ~4 months after release -___- (they're even fixing performance-related issues/glitches for BFBC2 in the next R280 Beta release).

I ran with very smooth gameplay. Don't remember the fps dropping or any lag, but then again it was only low/medium detail.

Actually no I never got into any of these deals and I missed them, told EA LIVE CHAT that this is just stupid as hell and that I ordered in March... I was like wth I support EA / Origin and they gave me the game.. not even the one from the list since I had all of them so I picked a NFS game for 50 euro lol

Yup that's it, if DICE partners with AMD for BF3, I'm getting a HD 7900 card without blinking.

Some news on servers.

There will be both ranked and unranked servers

Ranked servers offer some freedom to server owners/admins to set the map, game type etc. Ranked servers will track player progression EAs master servers, much like in past Battlefield games.

Unranked servers give the server owner/admin more freedom to select which weapons are available to players etc. The unranked server option is suited for tournaments because everyone has a level playing field (no ranks/unlocks). You cannot rank up or unlock new weapons on unranked servers.

Ranked servers will be provided by select Ranked Server Providers (RSPs).

The official list has yet to be released.

Pricing is likely to be higher than Bad Company 2 server due to Battlefield 3 requiring “considerable more CPU power per player than Bad Company 2″.
PunkBuster will be the anti-cheat system for Battlefield 3.
Third party anti-cheat organizations like PBBans will be available, it’s up to the server owner if he wants to use them.

Players won’t be able to create their own servers running on their own machines.
