DX11: BattleField 3

Battlefield 3 is leaps ahead of its time with the power of Frostbite 2, DICE's new cutting-edge game engine. This state-of-the-art technology is the foundation on which Battlefield 3 is built - delivering enhanced visual quality, a grand sense of scale, massive destruction, dynamic audio and character animation utilizing ANT technology as seen in the latest EA SPORTS games. Battlefield 3 also delivers all-out vehicle warfare with an incredible Array of vehicles to control, including Jets, tanks, jeeps and helicopters.

In our benchmark tests of Battlefield 3, the first two minutes of action in the single-player mission 'Operation swordbreaker' (after skipping the interview scene) are captured with FRAPS. Relative to the online multiplayer action, these frame rate results are nearly identical to daytime maps with the same video settings. The Frostbite 2 game engine in Battlefield 3 can strain even the most powerful video cards when all the settings are on max, so for these mid range video cards more moderate settings are used.

  • BattleField 3
    • High Settings: (High Quality, 2x MSAA, AA Post High, 8x AF, SSAO)

Cost Analysis: Battlefield 3 (1680x1050)

  • $129.99 HIS Radeon iCooler HD 7750 costs $4.41 per FPS
  • $119.99 GeForce GTX 450 costs $4.30 per FPS
  • $119.99 MSI GeForce GTX 550-Ti costs $4.25 per FPS
  • $139.99 GeForce GTX 460 costs $3.38 per FPS
  • $109.99 Radeon HD5770 costs $4.84 per FPS
  • $149.99 Radeon HD6850 costs $4.08 per FPS
  • Test Summary: Battlefield 3 is where the action is at right now, even at these moderate settings the game still looks 10x better on the PC than on consoles. If you want the ultimate experience then I recommend looking at a higher end GPU but for now the HIS HD 7750 iCooler delivers some respectable frame rates and its Cost per FPS is not bad at all, the question now is... How much power does one need?
