BF3 High vs Ultra Settings

#1Benjamin_ButtonPosted 6/2/2012 11:22:20 AM
How much better is Ultra settings than high?

Is it one of those games wherein Ultra is only marginally better yet uses 200% more resources?

Or are the improvements in gfx actually worth it?

I can hardly tell the difference at 1080p.

Not worth the performance drop, imo.

yea im gona go buy the game just to find out.

you know because going on an online forum and asking people who already own the game and can answer the question is stupid.

using your brain? this is madness!

Other than looking a smidge more blurry, not a difference to me.

I find it kind of neat that BF3 on low settings still looks better than a lot of games, though playing it at that detail won't help much on the competitive side. Crysis 2 is this way too.

Best way to determine what each laptop GPU can run on each game. Look for yours in CP

But you presumably already own the game. Otherwise your recent posts are somewhere between silly and bizarre trolling

Why don't you just look at a scene on high, take a screenshot
Do the same thing on Ultra and see the differences for yourself
Seeing is believing and it will be better than what anybody here can describe to you

Wow someone actually reads my posts.

Yes it does sound like that. I don't. Thankfully I have a friend that owns it. Then there's youtube, not as accurate obviously but helpful to compare glaring differences.

But honestly I shouldn't need to cover up something so pointless, when anyone being cynical on such a little point probably won't consider other possibilities.

Actually some competitive players play on low settings to get 120 fps for smoother gameplay, and guys like them are just as good. (Rivalxfactor comes to mind)
