I recently got a new Sapphire 6850 but I still don't have BF3 and I was wondering how well my gpu would perform in multiplayer. If some of you have this card please tell me haw many fps you are getting and on what settings.
At 1920x1200 I run high textures, 2xMSAA, high FXAA, 16xAF, SSAO, everything else medium. After much tinkering, this is what works best for me. I get a constant +60fps, averaging ~80fps. If I turn MSAA off, I can get the same fps with everything on high, but it doesn't look quite as nice with the jaggies. You have a single 6850 at a slightly lower resolution, I'd say 35fps average on high (AA off) is probably doable, but that's hardly a playable framerate for online shooters. You should start with medium and adjust from there. But don't worry, medium in BF3 still looks really good.
