What kind of FPS can I expect for BF3 on 5670?

I will be getting a 5670 very soon. and wanted to know if anyone had any idea what kind of FPS I could be getting on it .

PC Specs:
Phenom II X4 840T 2.9
6GB RAM
1TB
5670 512mb


My monitor has a native res of 1980x1080p but I plan to play at 1280x720p . I also plan to play low-med settings since I know the GPU isnt the best.


Also would it perform better than Xbox 360?

More about what kind expect 5670
  1. It would probably run better than the Xbox 360 version, which probably will struggle to get 30 FPS at the equivalent of low settings, kind of like the 360 version of Crysis 2. How much better would depend on how much eye candy or anti-aliasing you enable. Considering the game isn't out yet, and I don't think the beta is open yet, you may want to wait on some benchmarks before you buy a GPU for that game.
  2. There is a closed alpha trial going on currently. My brother sitting 10 feet from me is playing it on his pc.

    You have a Quad core, and a phenom II not athlon, so that's good. Remember, Bad Company 2 was extremely dependent on your cpu(you almost needed a quad to run it good), but not so much your gpu. So, since you plan to play it at a reduced resolution and medium settings, I think you should be okay. Don't expect 60fps, but I think you will get over 30.

    Then again, no requirements have been officially released, so I can't say for sure. My brother's pc is running it decently, better than I thought it would, and this is still in alpha apparently, so the optimization may not be there yet even. The one thing that I hate about it is you can't customize the graphic settings, it's only low medium high and recommended. Same thing they did with Crysis 2. Really?
  3. since your computer is better than the consoles, you will definitely be able to get playable frame rates if you lower the settings low enough.

    No no no no no, PLEASE tell me your kidding about the graphics options! D;

    Also, I will be waiting till after the open beta to see if it gets playable FPS.
  5. yes it will run easily better then the console version

    console version will be 30 fps with 800x600 or 720p resolution lol, with low settings

    frostbite engine games are more cpu intensive then gpu, so you should be fine
  6. your cpu is quite capable one. why not getting something better than 5670? if you got budget constrain may be you can start saving from now and buy better gpu later.

    Ugh, I wish I was kidding about it. Hopefully, this is just for the alpha/beta, and it won't make it's way into the retail version. However, look at what happened with Crysis 2, same exact thing. Like why would they even do that? One of the reasons we have a pc is so we can customize graphics options to higher quality. But no, let's make pc's like consoles since we are putting the game on consoles anyways!!! /frustration

    OP, the next thing I would look into is replacing your graphics card. However, even with the 5670, you should be fine, even at medium settings. But if you are on a 1080p monitor, why play at 720p? I think a resolution like 1366x768 would look better. My brother's pc specs are Origninal Phenom@2.6GHz(don't know exact one sry), 4GB Ram, 5770, and a 1680x1050 monitor. He can run the game fine on the auto/recommended setting, which I believe is medium. And keep in mind there is still optimization that may have to be done.

    Well I plan to get the 5670, hopefully it'll hold out 1 year, then when I upgrade, I'll be getting something like the GTX 570. I just dont have the money now.

    Battlefield 3 didn't come out yet, so why buy a weak card now? You should be saving that money and buy a better card. You have a few months to upgrade, if you can't save up a few bucks I don't know what to say honestly.

    it's your call. but if you buy the card because of BF3 you can save a little more money before the game comes out. something like HD5770/HD6770 are much more better to have if you really want to play BF3
  11. In an interview by game-debate the DICE spokesperson stated that the new frostbite engine only requires a little more power than the older one.Now at 720p the 5670 can run bfbc2 at medium with around 40-50 fps.So at 720p you should be able to run on medium settings.You will require a 6770 or more if you are planning to play at high settings at 1680X1050

    Source?
  13. You think i'll be able to get away with high on dual 5770's and a 2500k? and get 60fps? how many fps is your brother getting on med?

    As you may know E3 allowed us journos an early look at the latest BF3 trailers which focused on tank gameplay footage. Naturally we were excited and headed straight over to the EA booth to see what else we could learn. For example, we have heard mention of the suppressive fire effect. Where you get points for suppressing the enemy. Suppressed enemies will get a blurred screen and maybe other debuffs.

    But more importantly I would like to highlight the chat we had with an EA spokesperson at E3 about the predicted BF3 system requirements.

    Needless to say we had to push hard for any information and were faced with answers like 'Battefield 3 is still being optimized' and 'Its too early to say what the BF3 system requirements are going to be'

    Unperturbed we tried a different approach. We asked, would we be able to run the game on a machine that could run Battlefield Bad Company 2

    We were told

    'I cant say for certain, but I would think so. Although the Frostbite 2 engine (Frostbite 2 is the new BF3 game engine) is capable of far more than its predecessor (Frostbite 1.5 is the engine used on Bad Company 2) we are pretty confident that it will still only need the same sort of hardware to get it to run. Maybe we will see a small drop in frame rate due to the extra power used by BF3 with the FB2 engine but hopefully nothing to worry about.'

    So from this snippet of gold we are going to put together our predicted Battlefield 3 system requirements

    RAM: 4 GB

    GFX: GeForce GTS 250 or Radeon HD 4830

    GFX RAM: 512MB

    DX: 11

    As I stated in my above post frostbite 2 is only slightly more demanding than frostbite 1.So you will destroy the game at max with dual 5770s

    Nice, i'm glad i didn't upgrade my card(s) then and saved my money instead, these cards still have a bit of time left in them it seems.

    As long as you can max out crysis,crysis 2 and metro 2033 on your rig you are covered for 3-4 years at least :lol:

    Well, i can't max out crysis 2 on ultra, but one below ultra with dx11 and get around 40-60fps with vsync on. I can easily max it out with out dx11 though haha
  19. Hahaha sweet! Only a few FPS? I'm guessing thats a little more or less than 10 fps, lets hope.
  20. Hi,

    I´m a heavy BF BC2 playera and my Kill/death Ratio improved significantly when I upgraded my PC first from Core 2 to I5-760 keeping the 9800GT and then to the 6950. After that there is not much difference in BC2 with two 6950 in crossfire and an i7-2600k. Now I'm ready for BF3... :D

    I do not recommend to ply without enough computer because the result is getting killed far too frequently... :fou:
  21. I have crossfire 5750/5770 and can run Battlefield BC 2 maxed out. One card gets about 79 C but I moved fans around and it only got to about 62 C. I also ordered one more fan so hopefully that will help.
