Saints Row: The Third FPS Problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have seen this topic on other sites but not this one so I'm starting it.

So here's the problem, I have 2 Radoen HD 6870 running in crossfire at 4800x900 res.(triple screen) on dirt 3, NFS Shift 2, WOW, Portal, Portal 2, Deus Ex HE, etc, etc, that all run well over 60 fps on max or close to max settings. But when I play SR3, I barely get 40 FPS inside a building or house and pretty much avg bout 27 FPS. Sometimes (more often) I get to 20 FPS. I'm not sure what is goin on but it seens to be happening at lower resolutions and the only step up from the GPU I have is 69**, so i shouldn't be having a problem. madsmiley.png

Also I am overclocked core 950, mem 1175 on both cards

Catalyst Version 11.10

Try updating to the latest catalyst as well as they have some fixes for it I think, also it's actually a pretty taxing game in DX11 mode with everything enabled. I'm lucky to break 35FPS on my single card on my single monitor.

Also it may only be using one card so check that if you can and monitor it as well. Also try bumping the settings down and see if you still can barely push 60.

Other then that not to sure to be honest.
