Will my specs run battlefield 3 at ultra.
just bought an alienware m17x r3 and want to know if my it can run bf3 at ultra.
Here are my specs.
Intel Core i7 2760QM 2.4GHz (3.5GHz w/Turbo Boost, 6MB Cache)
16GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1600MHz (4DIMMS)
Alienware M17x 240W A/C Adapter
17.3-inch WideFHD1920 x 1080 60Hz WLED
2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M
500GB Hybrid Solid State Drive.

I have heard mixed opinions and just want to finally know. The computer is still being shipped so I havent been able to test it out so that is why I'm asking.

Probably not. You'll have to turn some settings down to high because a single GTX 580M is about as the same power as GTX 570M. 'specially if you're tryin' to run 1080p resolution wise. I assume you're asking if it'll run at Ultra & maintain good frame rate... aka 40+FPS steady.

Howdy.

Check this one out. Unfortunately I was unable to find M-version settings and their approximate framerate.

http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/OPS/Battlefield-3-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-580-OPS

But please observe that a M-card will never perform as an equally good as the standard version. Due to needs in cooling the device, it'll be running differently. I.e downclocked compared to the large version. I don't know how this particular card works, but that's "always been the case" when gaming with a laptop. The geforce card does 2GB RAM on it. And BF3 settles around 1.3GB GPU RAM usage on my computer. So you'll be able to load Ultra textures and geometry no sweat. Rendering them in X fps on average is another story.

My guess is that ULTRA settings can be applied but turn MESH to HIGH, AA = Off, Motion Blur = Off, 16xAF, SSAO, and try turning down shadows to High or even med, you could try using the GTX 460 OPS [url="http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/OPS/Battlefield-3-NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-460-OPS"]My link[/url]
