Your best Skyrim "Awesome pictures"? - Page 800

post #7991 of 13464
The VRAM would definitely come in handy... but only if you plan on running games at fairly high downsampling resolutions. Otherwise, the 670 and 680 are seriously close, and with overclocking you could basically have the same thing. Would be hard to justify that cost unless you could sell your current cards.

I didn't change the sweetFX settings that came with K ENB. Well, I did lower the sharpening a bit. Didn't think it was necessary to be so high.

The only changes I made were in the enbseries.ini file. And I just lowered the bloom values for nights and interiors.

Do you know the specific names of the bloom effects like AmountDay, BlueShiftAmountDay, or ContrastInterior, etc..

Well, I game at 2560X1440 and I get pretty good FPS now, though it still dips to low 30s at certain times. Perhaps just overclocking the cards would be the best option. I hear these OC pretty well too. smile.gif

Try 2160p tongue.gif 1440p is like nothing... and isn't a noticeable improvement over 1080p really.

670s use up about close to 2GB on my setup. Also, I don't know whats going on, but I have this problem that SLI isn't being utilized with ENB on.

 

When I delete the d3d9 file, my FPS shoots up. With the file in the Skyrim directory, I get the same FPS as with SLI disabled. Strange thing is that the FPS about doubles only in the menu screen. When I load my game, the FPS drops down the 30ish when I know it should be around 60.

 

Disabled Vsync already...

Does whatever ENB you're using have the frame limiter set in the config? That may be the culprit. Some ENBs ship with the limiter set to 30.

SLI works great for me. Both GPUs are chugging away at 100%.

I pressed shift + enter and saw that the limiter was off.

 

SLI ON

 

  • FPS at Menu is around 400-500 FPS
  • Game FPS is around 30-40

 

SLI OFF

  • FPS at Menu is around 200-250
  • Game FPS is around 30-40 still!

 

Is there a OSD to show GPU usage since AFB and Precision are incompatible with ENB?

I use MSI Afterburner and just keep it open on my 2nd monitor. I don't use on screen displays (yuck).

I have a second monitor as well. Problem is with some games, the second screen instantly goes black once a game launches.

 

Also, I made an edit on my post on the last page.

 

Finally, Skyrim  w/ENB instantly crashes with Afterburner on.
