One such game is Battlefield 4 and according to AMD the Battlefield 4 demo at AMD’s GPU 14 event was running on a single AMD Radeon R9 290X at 5760 x 1080.

I has been widely reported that AMD will launch their next generation “Volcanic Islands” graphics cards in the 4th quarter of 2013. The 4th quarter of 2013 also happens to be when Battlefield 4 will be released, more specifically October 29th.
