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?
