40-70 FPS with uber sampling off sounds about right for your CPU and GPU configuration.

That makes me sick. Looks like I'll be buying a Bulldozer.

So is it possible that my CPU is bottlenecking me even at 4GHz?

But thats how it works around here? Claim a company is bad and be labeled a fanboy. wink.gif


Also can someone chime in here, as I have little knowledge on the newer ATI cards. He's using a 850W PSU with 2x 6970. Isn't that around the recommend wattage for just a single 6970? My GTX 580 loads my computer at ~750W according to my UPS. I'm highly doubting 850W is enough.

850W is enough for 6970 crossfire, I should think. As long as it's a quality PSU.

Broni, while you play watch your graph from MSI Afterburner, watch GPU 1 load and GPU2 load.
If they are both used over 90%, there is no bottleneck.

Most likely. You have loads of GPU power and a CPU that doesn't seem to do well in this specific game.

Definitely do this to confirm the CPU bottleneck.

My computer which had a 920 and x58 extreme loaded with my two 6970s fully OC'd to 600w or so.

I was actually wondering that exact thing lol.

question: Why do you have a thuban and so much ram? Do you do a lot of video encoding, rendering, etc?

It's old architecture, what do you expect? I hope you are using your comp for some of the reasons I listed above, otherwise whoever told you to buy a thuban is an idiot.

Yes, without Ubersampling I'm pulling around 70fps. With it, now with the hotfix around 18-25.

I was going to build Intel/Nvidia but my buddy is a huge AMD fan and convinced me to go with the 1100T. As for the RAM, I don't do anything besides game. I know the 16GB is infinite overkill, but I've wanted a serious system for as long as I can remember, so when it came time to build it, the extra $100 for an additional 8GB was worth it. Just for more personal well-being more than anything. Stupid, I know. haha

Anyone here at OCN that tells you, that you have too much of anything, is just not doin it right wink.gif

OCN is all about overkill gunner.gif

You may be already doing but: make sure your not using edge detect AA, as it kills virtually all game's fps for 0 image quality boost, just use x8 normal, or enhance current setting. and leave off morphalit-whatever its called filtering as it looks like ..well, it looks bloody bad lol.

Edit: Oh, and make sure your using 'AMD Optimized' Tesselation, as thats another monster fps killer when set to manual.
