My HD5870 awaits thee... at 1280x1024... Bring it on!!
that was DX9, pretty much everyones machine could handle that...
Probably because not everyone has state of the art PCs,or they dont want to spend that kind of money, or they can't afford to. If he says you need the most expensive system around at the time to play the game, not many people are going to buy the game, in essence commercial (money) reasons.
Looks like i'll be getting a second gtx 570. Tho gona wait and see what its like when its released
But I thought multi gpu setups were garbage. That's what I'm always reading on this website and forum!!!! Wonder if the consensus will stay that way?
How does it suck when on crysis 2 when I was running a GTX580 I was getting 75fps with the ultra setting's and textures etc, but when I turned on the 2nd card it shot up to 110fps.
I think you might be thinking of SLI of old.
The alpha ran fine on my i5-760 / 5770 at 1080p. Grated it was on a small level but i cant see any reason why the final game wouldn't run amazingly on a 570/580...
twitter.com/repi (Frostbite Senior architect I think), I believed said something along the lines that the target is for 720p. (Minimum = low settings @ 720p).
Considering what this game has the potential to look like, how the GDC talks cover what they are doing to push the envelop, and how dice doesn't really do "incredible optimization", I can certainly see this being true. (Public demos have supposedly been running on 580 SLI, and that probably isn't with all the bells and whistles turned on, for performance reasons)
The best I can manage is a 6950, hopefully that will look awesome (definitely not the best though). Some tweakability, and hopefully a good implementation of FXAA, and it should be noticably better then BFBC2 *crosses fingers*.
take into account microstutter at higher resolutions (SLI is only really useful for higher resolutions) and it starts to look less viable. OK you might not get microstutter, but plenty of people report it.
I seem to remember test rigs running a single 580?
That's why they have minimum specifications.
Reccomended specs should be what you need to play it at its best.
IMHO a time proven game is a good game, not a good looking one. HL, HL2, UT, etc etc.
Ah FFS now I have to build a new PC. My Q6600 got old very quickly and my GTX 470 that is less than a year old is out of date already.
But then how does the Dev know what is 'the best?'Your Best? His best?
Are you playing on a 30 inch monitor? 3D ? Across 3 or 6 monitors?
Can we PLEASE have some benchmarks of the game on a few cards (modern and aging) when it comes out?
+1 please do this for the beta too, obviously plenty of interest in the community
Finally an excuse to upgrade the 5850 to the 7xxx when they're out
You speak sense. I'll wait until the game is out. Hopefully 580 will be able to do 2560x1440 at high.
Don't really fancy dual cards anyway. FT03 mATX is what I really want in the long run (eg when going for ivy bridge)
probably best to wait for the new gen of cards, maybe run high rather than ultra for a while then build your uber mATX system (FT03, mmmmm)
The only microstutter I have ever heard off is with ATI graphic's card's due to poor drivers, but I use to get stutter on a single card at high resolution's with only a single ATI card (x1950 Pro) changed that for a 8800gts and the stutter went away.
