As the title goes

More about : radeon 6770 good bf3

October 23, 2011 12:18:13 PM

I was able to play BF3 beta on a Phenom II 925 + 4GB RAM DDR3 + Radeon HD 5770 at 1680x1050 and medium settings and the game ran fluent.

Can't give more specific data as I didn't measured FPS.

i managed the beta with a 5670 at 1080p was right on the limit though and i had all low settings, a 5770 should be fine at lowers settings

Maxed at 1080? Not a chance. Runable with many/all details on, yes.

Like they said, if you're willing to lower some settings, you should be able to play any game with that card.

i meant it was on the limit of playability, therefore a 5770 with more than double the power will run the game at low settings well

Wasn't replying to you. I was talking to the OP. I bet it can do better then low settings. As brann said he was able to do medium settings on 1050.

Weird...I played the game on high settings at same rez with i7 870+gtx 275.Got a constant 30+fps.It must be your CPU.A quad core with a 6770 will easily net high settings at 1680X1050

also i think my dual core cpu was the limiting factor as i switched to a overclocked 470 but my fraerates barely changed, dual cores are no good for bf3 it seems

Frostbite engine is VERY CPU DEPENDANT.I got 100% usage on my overclocked i7 870 on all 8 cores and thats with hyperthreading.Just for the sake of it I limited it to 2 cores and my frame rate nearly got halved so yeah you need a monster CPU for this.

If running at a lower res like 1650, you should be fine,but with something like 1080p, it might struggle.

@OP u should post your System Specs so that everyone can tell u about whether it will be enough for you or u will need to upgrade u'r CPU/GPU and plz tell the resolution u want to play...


If u can tell u'r specs it will help us determine whether it is good enough for you or not as everyone has to Assume your CPU/RAM/Resolution u wanna play the game.

Assuming you meant 1050. (1680x1050) 1650 is higher then 1080. 1050 isn't that much smaller then 1080, so the scores should only be a bit higher. A lower res would be 1440x900 or 800. That's quite a bit smaller.

the game doesnt look that good IMHO.I was kinda underwhelmed with the visuals I was getting.It looked worse than bfbc2,but thats just my opinion.Hopefully the full game would look and perform better

Based on my observations,the difference between 1080p and 1680X1050 is like about 4-5 fps.Nothing ground breaking

if you want high level quality and all effects for BF3, I think at least you need to buy 560Ti. If don't, I think 460 is fine.

In pixels the difference is around 1/8th less. 1080 is just over 2M pixels, while 1050 is around 1.75M. I would think the difference here wouldn't be much. As I said, dropping down to 1440x900 (1.3M, nearly 50% less) is something that should make a huge difference.

Flint and others have it right. You'll be able to play if fine. You won't be maxing it out unless you drop down in res a lot, but you'll be able to play it just fine.

Sorry, by 1080 I meant like 1920x1080. Even then, like the others said, you should be fine.

your 6770 will be fine.

my specs

Windows vista 32bit
quad 8400 OC 3Ghz
4 gig ram
saphire hd 6770 with 1 gig ram and at a 825 clock speed (OC)
850w power supply
P5E asus mobo
12.4 Cat driver
12.4 Cap profiles

Game settings

RES - 1680x1050
graphics set on LOW gets me a good 50-54 fps with dips to 45 fps when game gets super busy
graphics set on MED hangs around the 45+ with the odd dip into the high 30's when super busy

that was with FRAPS on. with FRAPS off the game play was slightly better.

on MEDIUM settings the game is very playable and runs smooth.

i am currently setting up 2 x 6770's in crossfire but am having Direct X issues. will let you know how that worked out when sorted.
