weird FPS in crysis?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
is it just me, or does fraps not work on crysis?

i just installed a 2nd 6870 yesterday, and played crysis and unigine to test them out. on unigine i got double FPS, but on modded crysis, it kept telling me that i had around the 20-35, sometimes 60 fps range(i also used the crysis fps counter in dev mode, and msi fps counter. they all read the same thing).

however, the weird thing was, i knew i was not playing at that fps, because:

1) with just 1 6870 i was getting better fps then that, even with modded crysis

2) the gameplay was super smooth, i could not tell the difference in fps when the counter read 60 fps, 30 fps, or 20 fps. i shot rockets everywhere and threw grenades to see if it would slow it down but it didnt.

i was wondering if this happened to anyone else, or if there's a fix since i wanted to know what my fps in that game was.

thanks!

Not excatly sure, but ill give you my 2 cents anyways.
I own Crysis 2 on steam and you can see my rig in my sig. I have the DX11 patch and the high rez pack. When I run it on ULTRA it says i get around 35-40 and when im on HIGH I get 60 flat so it works for me.
Have you tried other GFX detail settings?

Maybe the game doesn't like crossfire?

thats really weird, i wonder why its like that o_o

its not that i get half fps, its just that the recordings keep telling me i have half fps...or maybe im so used to playing on 25 fps low end computers, i cant distinguish between all of them anymore ^^".

yea, ill try different settings when i get home, at school at the moment
