GTX 580 SLI and FPS in BC2

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering, is it normal that my minimum FPS goes to around 95-100fps when i play BC2 online ? I bought another GTX 580 (for BF3), and i thought i would be able to never go below 120fps in BC2.

Tested maps like Africa harbor, Oasis, Valparaiso with 32ppl.

Max fps is about 180-200
Average fps is about 120-140
Min fps is about 95-100

1680/1050 @ 120Hz
All setting to Max
HBAO on
Bloom on
AA 4x
AF 16x
Vsync off

GTX 580 SLI (stock)
i7 930 @ 4.2ghz (1.34 vcore)
6gb ram 1600mhz

So, is it even possible to never drop under 120fps in BC2 ? Or am i asking too much ? Am i CPU limited ?

I think that's what I was getting with Crossfire 5770. It doesn't make that much sense to me unless there is a FPS limit or your SLI is not on?

SLI is on for sure. Also MSI afterburner show usage of both GPU @ 100%

Oh and i'm using the 270.61 drivers. (i found the 275.33 drivers to be worst)

Well, thats what is weird. My minimum FPS and average FPS is about the same wether i use a single GTX580 or SLI GTX 580... In both case my FPS drop to 90-100, and average about 120-130.

The only difference is that the maximum FPS is higher with the SLI set up. I can see that when i join an empty server with no players. I clearly get a high maximum FPS with SLI vs a single gtx580....

But with 32ppl, i thought a SLI set up would give a steady 150+fps, and never drop under 120..... But it's not the case, idk why i get about the same minimum fps as a single GTX580.

I'im thinking to sell one of my gtx 580, cause i find SLI pretty useless in BC2. . .

what does the number of people on the map have anything to do with FPS and your video card?

something is wrong with your SLI... not SLI... because you are the only person having issues with SLI. I have tri-fire and my cards light this game up at max settings, while one card wouldn't get me playable frames at max settings.

I have setup and seen many systems with SLI that play this game in all its glory and don't have the issues you speak of.

Clean up your drivers, run the newest official drivers and set vsync to ON... shouldn't have any issues after that or you again are doing something wrong.

God dam, it's called Arica Harbour .

Turn HBAO off. It adds far too much glare, dust and other stuff that I find graphically unpleasing, while forcing you to have Bloom on. Also, on my setup, it gives me 15 fps less. Might be enough to put you over 120 fps 24/7.

The number of ppl on a server have A LOT to do with the frame per second you get.... The more ppl you have, the more action is going on and the more your GPU get stressed. Join an empty server and join a server with 32pll, your frame per second is totally different.

And i'm pretty sure my SLI is set up correctly... when i run Unigine heaven 2.1 i do get a way better score in SLI vs a single GTX 580.

It's just that in BC2 maxed out (bloom on, HBAO on, 4x aa, 16x af) i still get drops to 90 fps, just like my single gtx580 give me drops to 90fps also. And i thought with a SLI set up it would never drop under 120fps or so....
