According to EA, Battlefield 3 garnered 3 million pre-orders by the day of its release. It is unknown at present whether these figures are worldwide or just for the US. The pre-order total makes it “the biggest first-person shooter launch in EA history”, according to the publisher. The engine is beautiful on the PC and very demanding of the partnering hardware.
Battlefield is a fantastic looking game and it runs well on the AFOX HD7850. When using two cards the frame rate performance improves, close to an average of 100 fps.
