2x580s for bf3 maxed LOL

so u all probably believed that *** about 2 gtx 580 but have u checked beta benchmarks probably not those 2 run an avg of 78 fps and most of u probably dont know that this game was preordered 7 times more than bfbc2 :O thats alot of people so how many ppl actually have that huge graphics power most of them also dont wanna max it but still 2 gtx 580 to max a game thats a joke moreover dual gtx 580 will cost u around 1000$$ all the other new games need a gtx 460 around 150$$ maybe to be maxed out lets just say 200$$ worth graphics can max out any game out there so how many times did u have to pay 5 times the money just for graphics to max out a new version of a game and its even same directx but the most important question u have to ask your selfs is how much money dice got off nvidia to say this crap yea and its even from twitter not official u cant sue them

More about 2x580s maxed
  1. i think gtx 560 non ti sli will be enough to maxout .. or 6950 crossfire.. that's for sure

    a single non ti will be able to max it at 1600x900 at playable fps around 30 so as for ti but more fps for ti a 570 is more than enough for 1920x1080 at playable fps if the 5850 was able to max it out in beta at 1920x1080 then thats what im expecting
  3. I am at least one of a few I know of who spent the 1200 dollars more or less necessary for the super 580's in SLI. I specifically built my system to subdue BF3 Retail to a playable state. Not necessarily the eye candy.

    Remember, Hardware is a weapon in gaming online.

    Advertised in Toms from time to time are custom systems costing you 4 to 8 thousand dollars in which you can have both zero degree frosted cold and 3 or 4 cards. Those systems will just about crush anything out there.

    LOL all you want. See you in the Battlefield.

    Who told you that? :lol: 2 580s aren't going to stop you from sucking online.

    2 580s is a great choice no doubt about that, but way too excessive specifically for BF3.
  5. ^^ I agree, i think even the 6850 will be able to max it. 1080p. Maybe not with antialiasing. but still max
  6. But can it play Crysis Battelfield 3?

    Ha ha ha. /sarc

    If my runt build is excessive why do Gamers pant after the latest and greatest reviews and announcements like hormone filled teenagers chasing the object of lust? Is it not one and the same? Money is no object if someone could build and run a Bulldozer system right now for the BF3 beta tomorrow.

    Consider that.

    Now that I got that out of my system... I explain further to reinforce that hardware becomes too old fast. So any time you buy something with basic strength and capacity to withstand at least a year of future game releases, the less you have to spend worrying about replacing it.

    It was BFBC2 that finally forced me off single core into dual and then quad core.

    If I valued your opinion your strange ramblings might of meant something to me.

    I say again (as you seem to have trouble reading)....2 580s is a great choice no doubt about that, but way too excessive specifically for BF3.
  9. Hey O.P throw a period in there every once and a while.

    Good hardware won't help you in online gaming, the people who really care and are good at those games don't always have great systems, but they play at the absolute lowest settings possible. Whenever I ask someone owning my on Crysis 2 what they have it's usually something like a HD 4850 and they are playing at 800x600 in the lowest settings because they dont want any slow downs and dont want eye candy distracting them.

    Yet another secret revealed.

    Also, Imagine BF3 on the lowest setting on the fastest hardware. Or any game for that matter. Meh, MW2 is flawless at max detail anyway. Very lethal at lowest.

    WAW CoD was the first retail game to burden hardware badly. It was barely playable in retail single, and hardly survivable in multiplayer. So I started to change from bottom feeding yesterday's has been hardware to the other extreme; the latest and strongest; cost be damned.

    This.

    Pro SC2 players like to play on low settings too, to increase FPS and to see invisible units.

    Your average gamer wants to be relatively competitive while enjoying the benefits of the sweet GPU they paid 400 bucks for.

    Haha fail.. I'm doing high, no anti aliasing, 1080p on my 6870.

    alright enough with this already I see you say this in every thread, you will not come close to maxing out the game at 1080p, maybe on low or medium but nowhere near ultra,

    to me maxing out in BF3 or any game means ultra settings (or highest settings available) at your given resolution and highest AA/AF settings or at least 4xaa 16xaf, while maintaining 50+ fps the entire time
  19. @ x Heavy:

    your using a COD game to talk about relative groundbreaking performance in your above post!? You cant be serious...

    it was far from the first FPS to challenge hardware, maybe you are joking or just young?
  20. O.o ?

    I think he is been deadly serious jjb8675309.

    Judging by his posts he doesn't seem very....well to put it nicely....bright ;)

    He also believes you need 2 GTX 580s just for Battlefield 3 to be in a "playable state", which is bull****, a single 580 can max it.

  22. I want 60 FPS minimum for online games, 2 x GTX570's @ 920/1840/2050 and a core i7 @ 5Ghz was just about enough for this @ 1080P completely maxed...

    Depends what you call playable to be honest.
  23. Mate you should be getting WELL over 60fps on ultra @ 1080p with your computer. 2 560s can get over 60fps on ultra @1080p
  24. Just to show I'm not telling porkies, thats 68FPS @ 1080 maxed, no explosions or anything going on either.

  25. ^ is that with tri fire or dual 570s?
  26. jjb8675309 said:
    ^ is that with tri fire or dual 570s?


    Dual GTX570's @ 920/1840/2050 (Core/Shader/Mem)
  27. Just like Oblivion when it first came out and next gen cards are not likely to be a big leap from current cards. As for this game everyone has their interests and if it takes two gtx 580 to max out then so be it but most will get by with less. Not every requires maxed out settings and some don't make much of an improvement in overall quality.

    BTW omgitzfatal we got the same psu ;)
  28. ^ Most games are made to run on the 360 anyways. So most games can be played on 6 year old pc's.

    Have you tried with just one card to be sure SLI is helping? I've got dual GTX 465s and SLI isn't working worth a crap on the beta, I get better average FPS with a single card and frequent crashes with SLI enabled.
  31. Bad troll is bad.

    Don't feed the troll!

    Look at the screen shot, both cards running at 98% usage, SLI was working perfectly.
  33. Yeah it does that for me to, it will say one card is at 90% and the other is 89% or so in MSI afterburner so SLI is definately functioning, it's just not helping my FPS.

    I get between 30-40 fps at 1690x1050 whether I have SLI enabled or not, but if I do have it enabled it starts stuttering and intermittently freezing up and then crashes after 10 or 15 minutes of playing.

    Which driver are you using?

    You should be getting much better FPS than that.

    http://uk.geforce.com/optimise/guides/battlefield-3-beta-performance-guide
  35. I'm using 285.38

    Not got SLI GTX570's anymore, Killed one of the cards getting 1 Ghz out of it with a modded BIOS and blew the VRM's...

    I think the Beta closed today didn't it?
  36. Good for you mate, and yeah beta has closed.

    That shows that a GTX580 gets roughly 30FPS min and 40-60 Avg, I was getting roughly 55-60 min and about 80 average which seems about right.
  38. Well you didn't say 80 fps on average earlier you just said 68 fps, but 80 fps on average sounds about right.
  39. If you scroll down from that chart it shows SLI 560s getting over 80 fps. That is at high, but I've heard that in the beta ultra really isn't ultra so it's possible SLI wasn't really helping you as it wasn't for me. I suspect when the real game comes out and real drivers that support it that SLI performance will be much better.
  40. Yeah I would expect SLI to perform much better for the full game.

    If two 560s can get 80 fps, two 580s around 110 fps and a 590 about 100 fps on high then I would of thought two 570s would be around 80 to 90 fps on ultra.
  41. Its a shame they didn't do a graph for ultra.

    Yeah I never said anything about average FPS, Just that I want atleast 60FPS minimum online.

    nvidia did
  44. guys the only noticeable difference between high and ultra is the 4x MSAA that is only enabled at ultra thats what nvidia said i cant see any difference between high and ultra


    the 4x MSAA effect

    there is a barely noticeable difference in shadows between ultra and high

    My cards withstood the 1 gig barrier, but only just. I backed it down a notch or two. Maybe I will feed it a few tenths of a volt to hold it stable at one Gig. At that point it will become a matter of thermal transfer of excessive heat and gaming at 55C max is pretty good overhead without using the winter air outside with window down.

    And to Gotham, I am so old here that there are few older than me. Those will be the ones I listen to.
    I am cautious with the interwebs because most of you seem not to have reached puberty yet.
