  • Dual-core versus Quad-core - BFBC2 abuses CPUs!!

    So I just upgraded from a 3GHz dual core [Athlon 64 x2], to a 3GHz quad core [Phenom II x4]... The difference is absolutely stunning.

    I have a 5770 video card, so I expected decent framerates when I first installed the beta. I was sorely disappointed... even at 1280x1024, with all low settings, I was only averaging framerates in the teens. I was pretty much relegated to playing armor from distances.


    Since I put the upgraded CPU in earlier tonight? DAMN! Now I'm running med/high settings at 1680x1050, and am sustaining framerates probably are in the 50's!!


    so yeah - it's not your 'old' video card that's likely holding you back. wow.

    I'm getting somewhat acceptable framerates with my e6750 at 3ghz, but its not happy with the abuse. I'm looking into to upgrading to a quad core also.

      The Dual core I got from Khaerus is doing itself proud, heavily overclocked but is managing to keep frames in the 30's for 905 of the time, very playable.
      I also have a 5770 which means I get almost the exact same fps on high as i do on low, so I play on high. :D
      30-35fps @ 1280 (that's all this old CRT will do) on mostly high settings is much better than what I expected.

        The devs have indicated they are doing a good amount of optimization still so I wouldn't run out and buy a new processor yet. I know the consoles all operate around a base thats three cores(360) or higher(ps3) so it would not surprise me if that base is influencing why dual cores are having such a tough time with this game.

          I got a quad 2.8ghz and a 4870, and the game is nice on medium for me. I haven't really tried to tune it, i'll do that once we're out of beta and maybe buy a 5850 so i can run high which is my goal. :)
