    still waiting for my flipping beta key.

    Nice to see a performance boost though!

    Re: News - Battlefield 3 receives a 38 per cent performance boost

    Q: What does a "Rendering Architect" do? Sounds like someone that'd figure on an episode of Grand Designs.

    I'm still ambivalent about Battlefield 3. Everyone I've talked to has said "GET IT!", (because they know I'm a keen BC2, CoD and MoH single player), but they've also said: it'd have to be on the PC (because the console version sucks); I'll need to get a headset; and I'll probably have to go to NVidia 500 series graphics (I've got a late model, vendor-overclocked GT460).

    Anyone got any advice? (I've got an 8GB RAM equipped hex-core box, so I figure I'm probably okay for memory and processing power).

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Re: News - Battlefield 3 receives a 38 per cent performance boost

    I'm just hoping my PC is powerful enough now I've been able to get a cheap second hand 285 GTX to replace my 4850 plus a new HD monitor. I suspect it'll be ok though as the Alpha worked ok on the 4850 at 1680x1050 and my new monitor is only a little bigger (1920x1080) - in fact along with driver and game optimisations it might not play half bad...
    Trust

    Can anyone shed any light on this ?

    Thanks for doing this. (although maybe I should have not been a lazy slob and checked those for myself?)

    Hopefully when they say "Recommended" they mean 'meet this and it'll run as we intended', not the usual meaning which is 'meet this and at least you'll be able to play the game', as opposed to the minimum which is code for 'yep, it'll load at this level, just don't expect to use it'.

    Looks like my system is only at this lower limit as regards graphics power (hopefully that doesn't mean 800x600 with no visual tweaks), hmm still thinking about that nice 560Ti that I saw on special offer somewhere, (unless someone's going to recommend that I go ATi/AMD - which might be sensible because I've got a CrossFire-capable mobo). But quad core - for a game! That must mean a heck of a lot of processing being done - physics simulations? I figure that BF3 is really an online title, in which case opponent AI doesn't figure as a part of the processing requirements.

    Interestingly enough - the system I had up until Christmas last year (which itself was only three years old) fails on pretty much every single bullet point.
