Battlefield 4 running at 4K resolution on 4x Nvidia GTX Titan

18
An impressive video showcasing BF4 at 4K resolution, which needs four Nvidia GeForce Titan cards to work.


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.

    I feel bad for the guy playing. Maybe if he put all the settings to low and resolution as low as it can get, he MIGHT get 120 fps :/. Fingers crossed for release.

      You can only tap into the full processing capabilities of the higher end GPU’s by increasing the Screen Resolution past a certain threshold. Putting the Resolution too low on the expensive graphics cards will give you a very low FPS (relative to higher Resolution), because many of the technologies of the card cannot even be activated at that point.

      Ex – Using 1024 x 768 might only get you 50 FPS, but running 2560 x 1600, might only get you 80 FPS.

    What’s the point? Just to say you can? Trying to impress people? Need fapping material?

    Clearly it didn’t help your skill any – that gameplay was pretty pathetic.

    I already have two EVGA Super-clocked TITANS @1058 so just two more!
    But for now I will keep it at 2560×1600 on ULTRA settings, this also looks OK.

      And 0% of console gamers in next gen will experience 4k on their games.

    If the guy has that much money to spend building a rig, then instead of 3 Dell U3011’s he should have bought 3 Asus PQ321QE’s to go with his 4 Titans.

    Ummm hate to be a negative nancy, awesome cards these titans are but shitty graphics on that game, looks like it was made to run on a sega saturn honestly, I can’t possibly be the only one that thinks this, don’t think this game scales to 4k well(horrible textures). Would never use this game to showcase 4k gaming, much better looking ones out already. (arma 3, to name 1)

      Do you have a 4k rig to view the video on?
      No, didn’t think so so it could just be your pitiful display running at 720p

    Sorry but, at 4k (8MP) resolution, you don’t need Full AA if you need AA at all.

    I just came here for the comments and seriously, BF4 is much better looking then Arma since that’s a simulator game with lazy developers. I own both games and Arma got some shitty animations, models and textures. The only thing Arma got is extreme view distances and the ability to hear sounds from miles away. And Arma is poorly optimized so you will need 4 titans to max things out even at normal HD resolution.
