In order to run the game on Ultra EA has released the need of two GTX580's in SLI, or two HD6970's in Crossfire. I'm sorry to say it, but even two HD6950's in SLI wouldn't be powerful enough to max out the game. It is based on an extremely powerful engine, and can be compared to Crysis of a few years back. It's a system killer, and a single HD6950 isn't going to cut it. If you look into it a little more you'll see that they set the HD6950 as the recommended card for this game, keeping in mind their tests were run at "Medium" settings. You'll need a little more power in order to max it out.

EDIT: And with "Ultra" I mean everything maxed out, full HD resolution and AA set to 16x on DX11 with tessellation and everything enabled.

ahh......2000$ for that is too much for your setup

if you are a hardcore gamer you should have gone for the higher gpu's

but you could try overclocking both your cpu and gpu to about 5-8% more than stock......but still you cant max it out

but i am sure you can max it out with HD6950 crossfire

and since your mobo is compatible go ahead and throw a 6950 into it......good luck

If I add another one gb of 6950 and can I able to set to max in ultra mode?
Is it possible to add 2 gig of 6970? Will my perfomance will increase?

Nope, you cannot "add 2GB of HD6970". The HD6970 is a different graphics card altogether.

This is all overkill from what I've found.

I have a SUN Ultra 40 Workstation, with

AMD Opteron 2222 Dual Core 3.0ghz
16GB DDR2 RAM
ATI Radeon 5870 1GB
250GB 7200RPM HDD


I can run BF3 everything maxed out, averaging at around 40 FPS. 1080P, everything set to ultra, and everything on.


If the thing is crashing, it's not because you have too weak of a system; it's due to some other issue that can be fixed. Make sure you find out if something is causing these problems before you upgrade.

No, you cannot. Not for a successful CrossFire setup, anyway. You'll need to install another HD6950 1GB.

I'm struggling to believe this, to be perfectly honest, partly because of that CPU and RAM setup (even if you went up to two CPU's) but mostly because the GPU doesn't even make the recommended cut. I may be wrong though, as I've not yet played the game on my system (and I won't, not with Origin).

For my two pence, I'd like to second ruhtraeel. My system is at the bottom of this post and it can run everything on Ultra and still pull in 53 fps.

The graphics engine truly is optimised. I changed from high to full ultra and it made little difference to my fps.

To the op: if my system can play this game at full ultra - then yours should be able to. It sounds like the card may be overheating.

Yes always showing 65% degree while playing games... How can I confirm this an over heat issue??

Hi Gumption,

I am planning to upgrade my desktop with the below path. Kindly let me know whether the new Mother board and the processor will be able to bring the full juice of ATI 6950? I would like to play the latest games of 2011 with full HD in ultra settings (1920x1080).

Current configuration:
Motherboard: Gigabyte 780G (onboard ati radeon HD3200)
Processor: AMD Athlon X2 4200+ (2.2 GHz)
RAM: 2GB + 1GB (667 Mhz)
Monitor: Samsung 17” sync master

I would like to upgrade it to:
Motherboard: Gigabyte 780G (onboard ati radeon HD3200)
Processor: AMD Phenom II Quad X4 - 965 BE (3.4GHz)
Graphics: Asus ATi Radeon 6950 - 1GB (EAH6950)
RAM: 2GB + 1GB (667 Mhz)
Monitor: Samsung LED 23" LS23A350HS (1920x1080)

Please be sure about your comments, I will be upgrading my PC this week itself.

Thanks.

Also let me know the performance - if I install GTX 560 instead of HD 6950.

HD6950 is a much stronger card than the GTX560. I'd rather spent the little extra and get the HD6950, even if you only take the 1GB version.

Two GTX 580's will definitely be overkill. A single 5870 can already max out the settings to my experiences.

Battlefield 3 is actually not demanding at all. The engine is really well optimized, unlike Crysis 1. In fact, my laptop, which has a GT 550m, can run everything on high with HBAO on and AA turned off and still average 30 FPS.

To my experiences, even ARMA 2 is more demanding than BF3, probably due to the larger environments in the game.

Also keep in mind that the successor of the 5870 as the fastest single card is the 6970, not the 6950.

BF3 really isn't a "system killer" as much as Crysis 1 was back in the day. The engine itself is powerful, but also well optimized.

Again, try to fix the issues at hand before upgrading. Other people are running similar setups just fine.






Also, regarding the GTX 560 vs Radeon 6950,

If you are talking about the plain GTX 560, then the 6950 wins by a noticeable margin. If you are comparing the GTX 560 Ti to the Radeon 6950, the margin is close to none. The 6950 wins narrowly at stock speeds, but also costs a bit more, runs hotter and louder, and overclocks less.

Stock = GTX 560 Ti < Radeon 6950
Overclocked = GTX 560 Ti > Radeon 6950.
