BF3 requirements

Post by Bradders » Sat Sep 24, 2011 3:49 pm

I cant remember if someone has already posted this but here we are anyway,

The developers are saying to achieve the recomended settings you at least require a GTX 580!

Nvidia and ATI will be rubbing their hands with glee, the community reckon 85% will need to upgrade.

Actually recommended settings are for "HIGH" Per Repi (Frostbite rendering architect) on his twitter account. I also know needing SLI/Crossfire to run high are just rumors from what I recall all their demos were on a single 580.

I refuse to play anything on a low setting. Let the fps lag begin!
