BF3 AA issue

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Refer to my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCHmJoPATio&feature=channel_video_title

I discovered this only happens when I have AA set in the game settings (so in the video i had 2x AA for the custom and 4x for ultra setting, both of which yielded the problem)
When I attempt to override the application setting for AA in NVCP, the setting does not change. So if I set it to 4x in NVCP, it would not be 4x in the game.
Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Thanks

Yep, tried 285.38, 285.62 and 285.79.
From memory, i don't think it happens on .38, but the performance is pretty shocking, since they were the BF3 beta drivers. It does happen on the .62 and .79 drivers though, but I don't know why.

1. Try playing with MSAA without post AA enabled.
2. Try using a different browser.
3. Make sure you have sufficient power going to the card and processor.
4. Unplug your PSU and leave it for a bit to fully discharge.
5. Latest drivers?

EDIT: 6. Try playing without that CPU overclock.

I've heard the different browser suggestion before, and I'll try it right now, but I'm just wondering how that would change anything? What do you guys use? I have a 650W psu with a 1055t and a gtx 570 so I think there's enough power.

Already done that, no change. My system is apparently 12 hour prime stable.

I use firefox, but I don't think the browser's the problem after all - still worth a try though. Regarding power, 650W should be plenty for your setup, but just to be sure try removing all unnecessary components, like those hard drives, and remove the CPU overclock.

Eh just speaking from experience there. My proc. would handle prime for 12 hours stable, game would freeze within a few minutes though. Entire system would start acting funny after that happened. All of my browsers would start flickering and text would get distorted and discolored, rest of the computer worked fine though. Really strange problem that I still don't understand but I've just lowered my CPU speed and everything's fine now.

Tried chrome, no change. I also already tried it without the CPU overclock, but it still happened. It's might also be worth noting that if I launch BF3 with 2x AA enabled and play, it's fine. But if I alt+tab out of the game and then come back in the problem occurs. If I alt+tab again and then go back into it again it's fixed. So every other time I alt+tab in or out the problem occurs.

What resolution are you running the game at? If its 1680 x 1050 or higher, then the reason this is happening is because your GTX 570 does not have enough Video ram to run AA. I have a GTX 590 with 1.5gb of vram and its still not enough to max AA. I see it hit 1.5gb of vram consistently and I have experienced the exact same problem as you. Just back off the AA. You really won't notice it if your focused on the game play. Still frustrating for me though as I payed $750 for this thing hoping to completely max bf3 and I cant. mad.gif
