It was before the patches and beta amd drivers that improved the performance even more.

How did it look with AA disabled ? That sure takes a toll on the FPS. I had it at MSAA 4X (maxed I think).

If you plan to play BF4 a lot, I'd go AMD. 7970 and up. Might as well go 280x or up. Mantle will be something you will want to take advantage of. I suspect it will offer better visuals at the same performance, if nothing else. I bet some visual features will be exclusive to Mantle.

 

If you do not care about how the game looks, go Nvidia.

So that Mantle thing isn't just marketing fluff ? Never really been into AMD/ATI. Don't think Mantle would be enough to convince me if the 280x benches lower than the 770 to begin with...

Definitely not, but we won't see how it actually performs until December.

I played the beta with a 570 GTX and very low settings and awesome FPS. I'm holding out for the final version before I do anything. I'm due for a major build soon anyways. 3G graphics onboard would be nice.

If you are serious about gaming on your PC I highly suggest you get a discrete card (not onboard).

Mantle was developed in collaboration with DICE who makes the best rendering engine of the entire game industry, so if anyone knows what an API should provide it's them. I think it'll kick ass but the adoption is a big unknown at this point.

Yeah adoption is gonna be crucial.

 

Anyone knows where I can find a Sapphire R9 280x TOXIC in stock (easy shipping to canada) ?
