Great. Hope it is less buggy to BC2, which was pure PITA to run.

Do not know what it was. But faced immense issues, and researched the net. Was it the Xfire, or the ATI drivers, or the umpteen patches pushed. I clearly remember after the last 1GB patch, it never ever ran. Each time I started, CtD. Just uninstalled it.

But past is past, this time it will good.

Hmm that's quite sad, but this game also uses Frostbite 2, so i can't say things are looking bright for you :(

Why so..? Meaning.
I mean to say even Battlefield 3 will use the frostbite 2 game engine (minus no DX9 anymore) so i mean to say that if you are facing problems with BC2 (whch also uses Frostbite 2 game engine) you also might face problems in BF3 as both games will utilize the same game engine.

BF3 will also be using a brand new engine, Frostbite 2.0. This will have full support for directx11 and 64-bit processors.

Some more features of Frostbite 2.0 include:


* “Tile-based deferred shading acceleration” via DirectCompute.[4] This is being ported to the PlayStation 3′s SPUs.

* Morphological Anti-Aliasing (MLAA), again implemented with DirectCompute, for bandwidth conservation.[4] MLAA is currently available only to a few PlayStation 3 games such as God of War III and LittleBigPlanet 2. DICE intends to bring this feature to DirectX 11 GPUs.

* Quasi-realtime radiosity.[5]

* Improved environment destruction.[6]
