I want to MAX BF3 out. *HELP* - Page 3

post #21 of 32
geforce fan here, but ati 7970 is faster. thinking your in need of a 6990 + one of your 6970s in xfire, beat out geforce 580 sli IM looking for keplar 2gens to roll out or sli my 580 till then if price drops , i like 120 FPS tho, I dont have aa on but i got post on ultra setting in bf3 and run good till the server laggs 50-80 65 avg cpu not overclocked right now My main ram is in need of rma. 10 fps faster with cpu over clocks. Gpu @ 925 core stock 772. Cpu @ 2.8 overclock is 4.20ghz.

Mite want to get a full water loop for the cards + cpu. then by then Kepler is be out soon (we can hope) and can pick from 7970 or 780/785 I want 785 or More. But depends on cost.

It's hard to max out BF3 with 1GB vram. I tested it with 560 Sli and couldn't do it. One card got to High/ultra a second card did
nothing other than a few fps and all due to the 1GB vram.

So probably any other set up with 2GB should work?

Yeah that is what bothers me.

I was a GTX 580 owner up til about last week. The GTX 580 will need a 900+MHz overclock on the core to keep decent frames at 1080P and Ultra. If you drop MSAA and use SMAA instead (search for FXAA injection) you should be able to get very good frames with stock clocks. SMAA provides anti-aliasing that is better than that offered by MSAA while reducing performance by only 2-6% (MSAA reduces performance by 15%+).

As for HD 6870 Xfire being "faster" than a GTX 580 -- I have a 6990 right now and 70 FPS on the 6990 feels "worse" than 40 FPS on the GTX 580 did. Probably due to multi-stutter or something, so I can imagine the 6870 CrossFire suffers even more.

I'd get the 7970 3GB if I were in your position.

My 6870's don't micro stutter noticably.

if you want to max bf3 then yes. most other games no.

So I guess maybe a 7970 is in my future... No one really said any rumors of kepler. I have not the slightest idea what to expect.

Drop AA my friend even with HD 6990 it feels really bad with ATI. 70fps will not feel worse. Micro stutter is noticeable 2 lower fps but not 60fps+. Also you get used to it and go with the flow. Instead of waiting for AMD to fix the frame lag program ur brain to stutter too and you will be in sync.

I highly doubt that. BF3 is highly GPU-dependent. See the performance gains from overclocking and % GPU utilization from 7970 + Sandy Bridge owners. Pretty much all in the 99-100% with overclocking giving very nice gains to BF3 performance.

I have MSAA off and pretty much only SMAA on. I don't know, it just feels really bad when I get suppressed or scope in on a big firefight even when I have 60-70 FPS where the GTX 580 would be getting 40-50.

I have a GTX 590 too that I'll be checking out to see if it fares better WRT smoothness.

GPU usage in Battlefield 3 scales depending on what you have available in VRAM. On my 3GB cards the most I've seen it get up to is 1.7GB. No micro-stuttering issues on my side either. If you really want to go with Nvidia and want to max this and other games out a 590 or 580 SLI is your best bet.
