BF3 2600k, 6970 FPS...

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
G'day, so i've played the bf3 beta and thought wow this is really demanding. And am now onto the retail (slightly better fps). The games graphics are jizz x100.

I built my rig about 2 months before it came out hoping the max it, I can and its playable. But the more fps the better.

Atm im getting about 35-42 fps in Caspian Border, drops usually when i'm fighting or looking at a lot of detail, ie: the awesome landscape.
The resolution im playing at is 1920x1080, i have a 2ms samsung bx2450. I know most of my specs are in the sig, but just listing anyway.

I don't see much difference in the gpu overclock (930 by 1410) thats really all i can go with my temps, im on stock cooling except for my cpu cooler (hyper 212). Fans up high dont worry...

So my main questions is: to get my fps a little higher, would OCing the cpu help at all? I know if the cpu isnt at 100% usage then dont bother but i herd it may help.

Lastly, does anyone have any settings that I could ditch that dont affect the graphics too much? ie: msaa down a bit to increase fps.

Thanks in advance.

Those fps sound abt right. You really need xfire to play at 1080p with maxxed settings. Nothing u can do except add another card

Disable HT, you won't notice a difference in games and a lot of Intel users report it works better with it off.

I tried to overclock my 6990 for BF3 and it didn't see much help if any at all. Not quite sure why. Makes me think driver limitations.

I'd wait a week or so to see if the memory leaks get fixed. Also, I think official ATI drivers are coming out in a few days. Once things are sorted out, it will be easier to make decisions on what you need to do in order to increase performance.

I can confirm that turning off Hyperthreading definitely increases performance on my sig rig
