If you’ve seen the trailer or gameplay footage for Battlefield 4, chances are you already know it’s either running on PCs or on next-gen hardware as the PS3 and Xbox 360 simply can’t look that gorgeous.

It’s easy to assume that it was, in fact, running on a high-end PC and you’re right! Chip maker AMD has announced that the BF4 demo was powered the AMD Radeon HD 7990 ‘Malta’ video card, which the company claims is also “the world’s fastest video card.”

Here’s what AMD had to say (via LegitReviews):

AMD and EA DICE are proud partners in gaming, with a recent history that includes the award-winning Battlefield 3 in 2011. That relationship continues today with the world’s first public demonstration of Battlefield 4, powered by the AMD Radeon HD 7990—the world’s fastest graphics card! Today’s unveiling not only demonstrates the commitment EA DICE makes to state-of-the-art PC graphics, it stands as further proof that the critically-acclaimed Graphics Core Next architecture in the AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series is the best choice for truly advanced PC games.

Yep, you can now safely assume that Battlefield 4 will be an AMD title.

Speaking of BF4, we now know that its upcoming beta will be available to ALL BF3 Premium members.

If you’re planning on picking BF4 up later this year, I suggest entering our BF4 “Wishlist” video competition where you can win a Roccat gaming mouse! That should help you frag harder, no?

  1. I’ll stick with Nvidia, thank you. Yes the ball is to be in AMD’s hand atm (much of it’s hardware are in current and next gen consoles) but the only thing for it’s competitors-Intel and Nvidia- to do is to do even better. AMD was blazing with Athlon while ATI was kicking Nvidia’s behind with it’s own line of cards but soon enough Intel and Nvidia showed their own magical devices. Besides catering too much for a lot of parties (hardware for the PC, Nintendo, Sony and MS consoles) would put too much stress on single company especially when it’s competitors only have one way to go – up.

     
  2. Definitely sticking with Nvidia, but slightly worrying to see that this was run on 690 equivalent! Looks like my “old” GTX580 might have to retire in the fall! (£350 card lasts 2years!?!) :(

     
  3. “chances are you already know it’s either running on PCs or on next-gen
    hardware as the PS3 and Xbox 360 simply can’t look that gorgeous.”

    I know PCs can look better but consoles can come pretty close. And next gen consoles such as the PS4 will basically match the performance for the time being. It’s clear that the author is bias.

     
    • when you talk about battlefield even in B3 the difference between consoles and pc is more than obvious. So it’s impossible in B4 for pc graphics to be similar with xbox 360 and ps3.
