Radeon Users: Boost your FPS in Battlefield 3

How to increase Battlefield 3 FPS significantly!


A lot of my friends and I have the HD 6870 and 6950 card with great system specs. I have the 6870 OC version. When we first got battlefield 3 a few weeks ago, it lagged on ultra settings. Even without v-sync and anti aliasing especially on the b2k maps. Well, if you are experiencing low fps from 25-40 or some random lag, here is what you should do..

1.) Make sure everything is on Ultra but turn off v-sync and all of the anti-aliasing settings. (this takes a huge load)

2.) Make sure you have the latest drivers - http://amd.com (top right, click support & drivers)

3.) Go into catalyst Control Center -> Gaming Tab -> Set everything to off / performance and make sure triple buffering is checked.

4.) Download this file to increase FPS by 10-15: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/29513342/smooth_bf3.zip (by Ev3ryth1ngRed) now remove the direct x line from the file.

Thats it! If anyone needs to see my catalyst control center settings, I will post a picture. Let me know if you see any improvements!

uh triple buffering isn't needed if you're playing without vsync.

also if you turn off all graphics effect via drivers, then you're practically running the game on "low" rolleyes.gif
nice attempt though thumb.gif

Not necessarily.. Turn everything to performance and you will see that the graphics do look the same as ultra but without anti aliasing. I can also record a video if you want.

James is right about triple buffering. And if you turn off AA, AF, etc. in game, changing from application settings (which is the default for most of the settings) to off in CCC makes no difference.

Also, what exactly is that file you linked? Is there a review or anything to go along with it?

Some random YouTube comments isn't exactly technical evidence... what does it exactly do?

changes some key parameters by what the video is suggesting within the user configuration file which seems to easy in most cases when they can go ingame and do just about the same redface.gif

What baffles me the most about his post, is what the hell was he doing wrong that a 6870, or a 6950 was getting such a low FPS? A 5850 with my old triple core hit 50-55 fps on ultra... Clearly his "great system specs" is utter BS.
And people are right, people on youtube's "likes and comments on how it actually helps" is the lowest common denominator. It's like going to a "poetry slam" full of sad hipsters in a hole in the wall coffee shop, and taking them telling you that you are good as a sign that you should try and sign a book deal of your collected works...

What I'm simply stating is you have the hardware to get higher than you claim you were. Clearly you messed something up in your setup, and likely should take your computer back to Best Buy so the "Geek Squad" can fix the "Virus" that is in your power supply.

I looked at the video it's just a recording of your desktop, not proof of anything in game, and "I guess it optimized the game and increases the fps"... You guess? Who did you rip this off of? All your doing it turning the settings of the game down, you don't need CCC, or a custom *.cfg file.

Programs that already do that, and there is some control over what settings your changing instead of trusting some guy who swiped it from somebody else not to screw your game up....

First of all know what the "Config" your peddling actually does, and know that people are going to have questions. Especially when pretty much all of your steps contradicts eachother, and don't get pissy when people do. If you don't know what your talking about don't claim it's the best thing since sliced bread.
