Well been playing this for about an hour and man what a resource hog! I game at 1920 X 1080 and MSI afterburner said I was using 1.4 gigs of my 580's memory. Its fun even tho its only one map, can t wait for it to be released.

just played a few rounds and wow is this game good looking. Im really interested to see if the single player looks any better since most games do this. Pretty fun to play also, ill prob pick this up when it comes out. The game runs very good also, playing at 1920x1080 with everything maxed and 4x AA and it runs smooth as butter 60 fps.

didnt try running it with one card. This is with the new beta drivers with updates. Both GPU's are getting 100% load on both of them.

Ok using fraps and averaging fps for 2 minute durations at different points during the maps here are some numbers. 56, 57, 43, 47, 53, 59, 47, 47, 57, 40, 43, 50. Also using a whopping 1507mb of vram.

a single 6950 overclocked past 6970 speeds (and 6970 shaders unlocked) can play it on ultra smoothly at 60fps. I can't take it off auto to turn on aa though because whenever I do textures don't load for the maps and it gets all buggy.

You guys are making me a bit nervous with my gtx560.Big%20Smile
 
Hopefully the retail will be alot better optimized than the beta.  If not, than a little more tweaking is in order.

i wouldnt worry, the build everyone is playing now is a few weeks old. You prob wont be able to play at ultra but im sure it will be fine.

In game it only goes to 4xaa. That was 16x AF. Averaging about 50-51 fps during 30 minutes of gameplay.

Anytime I didn't notice any lag but I'm 31 so my eyes are old lol. Stinks I would add another 580 but I would need to upgrade my psu as well from a corsair 750hx. So that would be around $700 and my wife has a bun in the oven sooo not going to happen now lol.

Hopefully after optimizing, backing out aa and af, which I never saw alot of improvement with in other games, will make 560 gaming decent.
 
coolmasta, if your 31 year old eyes are good for no lag at 31-51fps, can you imagine 60+ eyes?  This game should rockAwesomeLOL

BF3 Beta update:  Just installed and ran BF3 for about 45 minutes with 23" at 1920 res on my ODE 0.  Fraps log showed a min of 28 but it averaged about 42-46 with whatever the default settings are.  I didn't see any way to adjust aa or af or gamer vs enthusiast mode.
 
I still have the 275.33 drivers, just ignored their warning to update, for now.
 
I can live with that.Big%20Smile plus retail vers. and nvidia update should improve it some.

Thanks :0 Ya my wife has dumped thousands into the nursery... and she knows what newegg boxes mean now lol.

Jeez I never noticed how much vram some games use. I bought AvP last week when it was on sale for $4.99 on steam, and while it doesn't stress my card at all it uses 1.5g of vram.

Hi bprat,

How is your ode 0 handling the beta?

i saw the fps you posted, so i'm somewhat worried/intrigued as to what kinda graphics are you seeing, is it bad, not bad, is it "smooth"? is it merely "bearable"?

how is ode  0  handling it overall?

Hi darbedo,  my ODE 0 is doing pretty darn good, IMO, with BF3 Beta.  Big%20SmileA couple of comments up I posted my fps with Fraps.  A low of 28 fps was recorded when benchmarking but I saw a pretty consistent 42-46 or so fps with bots all over me.  Everyone agrees that mid 50s and up, 60 seems the magic number, is smooth playing, but at even 42 fps the play was smooth.  I saw no hesitation when aiming, etc.
My temps in HDMonitor stayed solid. 
Hopefully the retail will be optimized and gpu driver upgrade will improve it.
Keep in mind I have 60+ year old eyes so......
Not sure of the graphic settings, like aa, af etc because I saw no settings tab to play with.  If a higher aa can't be played with my 560 then the badguys in the distance might be a little harder to focus on.  Just a guess.
 
First impressions were, DS with stable oc'ing and the 560 held their own.  Of course a 580 or sli 570 would be better but, it is what it is.

the game auto detects settings for you. While ur able to control a character hit the esc key and youll see the options in there to change video settings.
