Shafted with BF3 performance?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I mean, I'm not one to complain about how BF3 runs.
1920x1080
GTX 570
i5 2500k
4gb DDR3 RAM
on Ultra with AA to off
i have no stuttering and fps ranging from 50-70fps during multiplayer.

But recently Tom's Hardware put out an article on BF3 performance with AMD and nVidia cards. What I noticed was that equivalent priced AMD cards, outperformed the nVidia cards by 10 fps.



On the ultra setting, with MSAA, the GTX 570 outperformed the HD 6970


I mean seeing as I can't even use any type of AA without really bad stuttering and performance loss over time with my GTX 570, i'm guessing that a HD 6970 with no AA on Ultra will run it a lot better than my GTX 570.

Maybe i'm nitpicking, but anyone know what the performance is like on a HD 6970 at Ultra with AA set to off?

Have you turned off Hyper threading for you CPU? If you haven't that's where the stuttering is coming from.
I run SLi 570s but when I tried it with one, I could run everything ultra preset and the game runs perfectly smooth. I turned off the FPS counter for the first run and it seemed s with my sli. Iturned it on to see the frame rates and they never dropped lower then 30. I couldn't tell a difference between SLI and a single 570 until I saw the FPS counter.

the i5 2500k doesn't have hyperthreading, so i dont have to worry about that.

I mean, i'm not complaining that much, but i dont understand why BF3 and nVidia advertise "BETTER ON NVIDIA" when the AMD equivalent cards run better.

thats with no MSAA. if enabled, the AMD cards are slower than Nvidia's

Considering the game was "optimized" for nvidia cards those results are pretty surprising if accurate.

Also i have HT enabled on my i7-2600k but have never experienced any issues so far but have read a few complaints saying HT is causing issues, how can this be?

Meh, "Going Hunting" is an awful map to benchmark, it's basically a scripted plane ride with little to no actual action.
