    Those of you who play or played Battlefield 3 (especially Multiplayer) on your 15" rMBP can you please provide some information:

    1) What rMBP-config do you have
    2) What BF3-config do you play at
    3) What is your experience?

    If you are very ambitious, please record a video showing when you play it. I've seen some people play it on a 650M but I want to know how it is in the rMBP specifically.

    Thank you in advance! :)

    Long story short: Battlefield 3 plays just fine. After the last firmware update, and latest nVidia drivers, I'm getting ~40-50fps at 1920 x 1200 with Auto settings.

    Turning off SSAO was the key. The game didn't look that much worse with SSAO off.

    I've got the 15/2.6/16 config, and it runs great. I can run high settings pretty well, and is semi-playable on ultra, but I find that medium works best overall. Sure the game is beautiful at ultra, but you're playing the game, not admiring the scenery.

    What should be the priority, higher resolution or higher quality settings?
