Why wouldn't they? The game is shown looking excellent, and in a playable state.

ROG Ares II has been available for a while, albeit probably not as cheap as what AMDs version would be. currently 1899$AU.

I know if I had a $900 gpu I would show games off with it to even if my 7950 ran the game very well.

I would expect more graphically than what was shown + there was a lot of screen tearing.And makes you wonder if that is whats needed for similar quality.

and this is why PC gaming sucks. It's all smoke and mirrors. They show you trailers looking amazing and then they tell you that you need a $1000 GPU to play it just like that and that's without counting the CPU, monitor, etc.

1)It's still in development

2)BF3 was probably the most optomized multiplat game for PC.  It ran on max settings on pretty much any decent rig at a decent framerate.  PC players need not worry.

It's better than showing amazing looking games, and then saying, "Oh sorry, you won't see it look anything like that :("

Not surprising, it looks great. I still expect it to run well on less capable graphics cards and it will probably also look great on PS4 and 720.

Assumes that there was no overhead from recording a video. Assumes that video was recorded at a standard resolution. Has no idea what frame rates were being achieved with the 7990. Has no idea about drivers and graphics optimisations.

BF3 was very well optimized (especially compared to another good looking games like all crysis games, metro 2033, TW2) so i won't be worried about it running well even on 560ti, 570, 580's.

And ironically, Bad company, 1, looks a lot better.  No ugly lens flare's and design that's not nothing but brown and gray and blue color grading.

After this generation i'm never going to pick up a shooter ever again, they used to be fun, now they're awful I can't stand them.  How long can you people actually continue to hype this crap?

also this news is more about AMD bragging about their fancy card than anything else.  Nvidia has been getting a lot hype with the Titan so they are just trying to make some headlines themselves.

And how do these smoke and mirrors not apply to the consoles too? I doubt anyone is showing their games off on consoles any more because people would complain about the graphics not realising that they're never going to get what's shown in the trailers.

I guess AMD is trying to put something out to compete with Titan. 

Glad I bought into this generation of cards early on, seems to be dragging on for a while.

until they show otherwise. Don't forget that the engine is upgraded most hermits comparing others at high res and framerate are also using games with last gen engines.Crysis3 takes a Titan to hit very high at close to 60fps :cry:

They've improved the engine but they haven't done a mass overhaul. It's pretty obvious the system requirements are going to be the same as BF3
