AMD reveals the $4,000 PC that ran Battlefield 4 at E3
AMD and DICE are partnering for Battlefield 4, as AMD’s Radeon card ran the very first singleplayer demo we saw a few months back. Now it’s been revealed that AMD supplied over 64 ultra high-end PCs for the E3 show floor.
AMD has revealed the PC hardware that powered Battlefield 4 at E3, and they’re quite expensive machines — the gaming PCs were some of the most powerful ever made, and each would retail close to $4,000.
On the CPU side, they sported an FX 8350 CPU, which has 8 cores and runs at 4 GHz, paired with 12 GB of DDR3 RAM.
On the graphics card side, the gaming rigs featured dual Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards in Crossfire setup. Those cards retail for $1,000 a piece, and feature 6 GB RAM each.
All that powerful hardware made sure that Battlefield 4 ran at a steady, smooth framerate at the highest settings during the show. And we’re sure DICE had quite a power bill at the end of E3.
AMD also released a photo of the fancy gaming rig, which you can find below:
