Battlefield 4 running at 4K resolution on 4x Nvidia GTX Titan
Battlefield 4 is a good looking game. But it’s also one of the most demanding games when it comes to PC hardware. You need a beefy graphics card and CPU in order to take full advantage of the visuals and play everything on “ultra” settings.
But when you want everything on “Ultra” quality, and run the game at 4K resolution (4x the resolution of 1080p), the hardware demands are quite astonishing.
The above video shows the Battlefield 4 beta running in 4K resolution (4096×2160), with fully maxed out visuals. To achieve this at a playable frame rate, four Nvidia GeForce Titan graphics cards are required. The Titan is the most powerful graphics card in the world, and retails upwards of $1,000 per card.
Each GeForce Titan card has 2688 CUDA Cores and 6 GB (!) of GDDR5 memory. Put all four together, and you got over 10,000 CUDA cores of processing power — something that would have been considered a supercomputer just 10 years ago.
On the CPU side, the rig features an Intel Core i7 3970X overclocked to 4.8GHz, coupled with 32 GB of DDR3 RAM. Yep, that’s one expensive machine.
