Will this Mac Mini run Battlefield 3 via Bootcamp and Superdrive with better than ps3 graphics and textures?

Specs:

2.7GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i7
4GB memory (Maybe 8gb Manually)
500GB hard drive
AMD Radeon HD 6630M
Windows 7 via Bootcamp and Superdrive

Will it look better than on ps3? Improved textures and Graphics? I looked at the beta requirements.

6630M will be a bit weak as well.

Agree.
BF3 is pretty CPU intensive in the beta. Your HD 6630m is also a let down.

Don't listen to these naysayers. If you're really running an i7, coupled with a 6630, you'll be able to run it just fine at very high resolution and graphical detail.

The PS3 is 5 years old, and the technology put into it is even older still. Battlefield 3 is coded to take advantage of PC hardware, so if you had a PC running the same vintage of hardware that the PS3 uses, the quality of your game would still be better than a PS3.

PS3 is like running the game in low at 1280x720, your machine should be able to handle a little higher settings than that, but not much.

Using an i7 and a HD6630 won't let you run any game on high settings and resolutions. You need a good video card to do that.

its a note book gfx card and no, it wont match the quality of the ps3... it will barley run the game on minimum as the 6630m ist as strong as an 88gt and thats minimum recommendation... your gonna be lucky to hit 4 fps at absolute minimum settings and rez gounf by the bench results i have linked.

its 1 thing to want to play games on a laptop. but to try on a mac ?
the sad fact is that if you had of spent half the money on a acer or similar you would probably be able to run the game.
