Witcher 2, only 25 FPS, 3x 580?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
When I play Witcher 2 at 2048x1536 on ultra settings, I'm only getting around 30 FPS for my three GTX580 3072MB cards. Is this normal? Do I really have to dial back to high settings? Shouldn't I be getting more FPS? Does the Ultra setting enable Ubersampling?

Or is it totally normal to get 25-40 FPS in the Witcher 2 with three GTX 580's?

Whats your gpu usage like?

Ubersampling is a system killer. However it should kill systems like mine, not yours...

The game does have very crappy sli support though. Chances are your only using half of two of your cards

Hmm... my GPU usage is around 90% on all three, and I'm still getting 27-33 FPS on High settings... I get 120+ FPS in maxed out Crysis 2 though, is Witcher 2 just insane?

Something is definitely wrong there - what driver set are you using?

Which current NVIDIA drivers are installed on your machine? (eg. version 280.19).

I'm assuming you played TW2 on an older driver set before upgrading to the current ones? Do you by any chance remember what your FPS used to be like?

Also, is it possible your cards are downclocking in a lower P-State for some reason? Are you monitoring the core clocks/voltages with something like Afterburner?

Disable ubersampling and see how much your frame rates jump. If they don't jump much, then you have a problem.

I actually got the game this morning, it's never been played on any other drivers.

I don't think they're downclocking, the Precision window shows the core clocks at 772 all the time, but I could be misreading something.

Also, I'm not even sure if I have Ubersampling on... how do I check this?
