This is the ultra high end PC that’ll power Battlefield 4 at GamesCom

DICE reveals the monster PC that will power BF4 at GamesCom later this month.

Battlefield 4 PC systems
We’ve gotten some images of the official Battlefield 4 PC that’ll be present at GamesCom. This ultra high-end system sports dual AMD Radeon 7970 graphics cards — some of the most powerful graphics cards in the world. In addition, the PC has an 8-core AMD CPU and 8 GB of DDR3 RAM. The graphics cards alone sport 6 GB of GDDR5 RAM. This setup is somewhat similar to the PCs used at E3, which cost over $4,000 each. We’re sure the GamesCom PCs are a bit cheaper, as they use cheaper graphics cards and less RAM as well (E3 systems had 16 GB).

Previously we reported that Battlefield 4 will be AMD optimized, since both next-gen consoles from Sony and Microsoft run on AMD hardware. If you’re looking to upgrade your system for BF4, check out our Best graphics cards for Battlefield 4 feature.

DICE has confirmed that they will reveal a new Battlefield 4 map and multiplayer mode at GamesCom, and recently announced that some new weapons and gadgets will be revealed as well. At E3, EA set up 64 PC systems for gamers to try out Battlefield 4, and it’s expected that there will be just as many at GamesCom. Just like with E3, DICE will live-stream Battlefield 4 gameplay as well. GamesCom starts on August 21 in Cologne, Germany.

Thanks for the tip, Cooper!

    How did you know about this PC ?

    Judging from what I’m reading. We’re looking at a AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor, so including everything you posted. The price of this PC would stand somewhere just under $2,000.

    Not bad actually.

      According to my calculation it is 1400 euros excluding SSD/HDD and peripherals. They seem to be sponsored by AMD and Corsair: Vengeance Pro memory, Vengeance C70 case, GS800 power supply, H100i cpu cooler, Asus Sabertooth 990FX, AMD FX 8350, 2x MSI HD7970…

      Still wondering about that too, sticking with 64 players when having 5 man squads seems a bit odd. They could have opted for 60 players instead, just to be sure it can run on next gen consoles.

        There was a rumor that dice is testing 70 players

    “The graphics cards alone sport 6 GB of GDDR5 RAM”
    Which is actually 3Gb used by the system because of the x-fire but 6 + 8 + whatever is better to ears? :/

    Yeah, crossfire setups do not share VRAM, so it’s actually 3GB GDDR5.

    also, the 7990 Malta is better than CF 7970.

    and the CPU is not even an issue, an i5 2500k/3570k will run bf4 just fine on ultra.

    There’s no way they dumped $4k into these builds and 7970’s are great cards but they are not the most current powerful graphics cards out their. You can build up the same exact system for about half that price and that’s buying retail and not buying used parts on ebay. If the case was modded and they had custom water cooling loop setup then I can see it running upwards of $4k but its not.

      The article says that the computers used at E3 cost $4000, not these ones which will be used at gamescom. These are obviously estimated to be less than those at E3.

    Well it doesn’t surprise me they are doing their demos on a PC rather than a console. Clearly the X360 will make this game look like junk and in typical EA fashion, the X1 version probably isn’t even ready to go.

    The COD Ghosts multiplayer reveal was done live on current gen consoles, EA are opting for more powerful than console PCs to show off.

    Anyone else’s Spidey senses tingling over this?

      “COD Ghosts multiplayer reveal was done live on current gen consoles” You sure it wasn’t on X1? Besides the main difference is that CoD’s graphical capabilities is the same since CoD 4 w/ minor improvements. Ghost look the same as MW3 & BO2. On next gen system its gonna look the same but 1080P and some AA, unlike Battlefield 4.

    They should have used a couple of 780s in SLI and a i7 for this. Next gen is only on the PC not some lame console crap.

      are u idiot? is a game sponsored by AMD how on earth would they use the hardware u are suggesting?

    Great build, wouldn’t have went with the FX-8350. But overall, I am a fan of MSI and they make great things, but I still would not be paying 4k for that build. With a game like BF3/BF4 two high power cards is a bit overkill.

    What is the case on the left called, I know its custom but what is the case called by itself without custom graphics?
