What would you like to see tested at 7860x1440? Star Citizen? BF4?

I knew these blogs would be used for greatness, with a quick tease of what I'm about to get knees-deep into: 7860x1440 testing in two of the hottest titles out right now: Battlefield 4 and Star Citizen.


I'm going to begin with Star Citizen, which is going to be one of the biggest PC games when it comes out. It is not hitting consoles, and will be exclusive to PC. Chris Roberts, the brain behind it, along with his team at Roberts Space Industries and Cloud Imperium Games are looking to make a game that will literally leave your PC in a bunch of molten plastic and metal, because it pushes your hardware so far.

Right now, if you're backing the game, you can get access to the Hangar Module. What I've done is upgraded to a better hangar, and run around through the hangar to get a sense of the stress across two MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning BE GPUs... these GPUs are no low-end parts, but some of the fastest GPUs on the planet. 7860x1440, though, is one of the most stressful resolutions you can run, and this is what you'll be seeing here on TweakTown in around 24 hours.

I'm about to jump into a few hours of Battlefield 4 testing at 7860x1440, so we'll have some of those results on these two MSI HD 7970s coming up shortly, too.
