Turn resolution scaling up to 200% in BF4 with everything at Ultra and tell me what you think


Looks slightly better than bf3

crysis was boring as sin, a hard to run tech demo does not a game make.

You won't be able to run the next Crysis.
Hell, next "Crysis" is probably going to be a 8k game that no sli / xfire is going to b be able to run.


So... the next boring PC gaming benchmark is going to only support an 8K resolution.

Well no wonder it will run like s***.

There's no need for every game to be a turbo-graphics violent shooter, but they certainly have a place on PC. What's not cool about seeing a new game that looks more realistic than anything made before?

Uh... Metro Last Light? The game looks beautiful. To max it out, without physx or AA other than its built in AAA, you need a $650 gpu to get 60fps at 1920x1080 and over $1k of gpu power to get it to 60fps at 2560x1440.

And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.

I'll take games over tech demos. The increasing power of the average PC combined with graphics being held back by consoles has been amazing for the PC gaming market. PCs have long been more than powerful enough when it comes to game play at this point. Now better hardware just means better shiny graphics, which are nice but shouldn't hold back a game's design.

I have a fairly powerful machine right now but I'm still quite happy system requirements remain relatively low. Optional graphics settings and texture packs and mods and such are the ideal solution for the tiny minority that upgrades frequently or buys very expensive parts.

Even better, the explosion of "indie games" and "remasters" of some old 2D classics has revived sprites or other 2D techniques as something seen as valid in game design. Stylized 3D environments even mean that budgets need not shackle game design all because everything needs a multimillion dollar graphics and sound budget, and I'd rather see fun/clever game design than have every game need to cost many millions of dollars just to look pretty. Game graphics have long been good enough for me, and if they never looked better than the PS3/Xbox 360 era I'd be fine with that. The Xbox One and PS4 will likely set a new minimum standard for PC graphics, and that's good I think. A bump up in the minimum will happen, but it's far better for that bump to take 5-7 years compared to the rapid increase in system requirements that made PC gaming far too expensive in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Consoles holding back PC graphics is probably the best thing to happen to PC gaming in the last decade, because it's helped keep the PC market large enough to be viable.

While I agree Star Citizen will probably be the Next Crysis. I would not bet against X Rebirth pushing most PC's to the limit next month upon release, whether that is through optimization remains to be seen.

Pff Crysis.

Sure it was technologically advanced , but when it comes to PC gaming as a whole , it is hardly relevant in my eyes in comparison to games like Counterstike and Starcraft. You know, the games the PC community actually rallied around and played to bits, and that attracted people to the platform. Crysis was just a benchmark tool and a way for 14 year olds with confidence issues to measure their e-wang. Not saying it can not be useful, but PC gaming needs good games more than they need games with pretty graphics. Though of course, one need not exclude the other.

Too bad Crysis is a low point in PC gaming.
