Often times I had heard leading up to the release of B3 that it would be a very hard game to "max". From what I understand, even DICE released a statement claiming, in no certain terms, that anybody without a Dual GPU could forget about maxing it.

Well, I put this video out to prove this is not the case. I play it without fraps, totally maxed, and get 45-60fps consistently. With fraps, I get 30-45fps consistently. Not too shabby.

Thanks for watching.

UPDATE: I lost patience and had to try Battlefield in Multiplayer, and there is hardly any difference at all.

Also, my "gaming skills" are NOT on display here. I was not trying, I just started playing, I don't care.


The video was poorly named. Should have said, "does not require an ungodly rig", or something.
When BF3 first came out, everyone was saying you needed a 590 or 6990 to max it out - which isn't true.
When I made this video, that's the context I meant it in.


When autoplay is enabled, a suggested video will automatically play next.
