Crysis 2 Dx9 Vs Dx11

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
C(onsole)rysis 2 had a patch not too long ago that adds DX11 support. Wow did they mess up on the optimization for that or what? The reason why I am posting this is because even with tesselation off, shooting at a wall causing smoke drastically reduces the framerate down to 5fps from 60fps. Turning the game to DX9 removes this extensive framedrop, with also no noticable graphical difference.

My question is, why would such a reputable company such as Crytek allow themselves to 1) use consoles as the leading platform and 2) add a patch after release that adds DX11 and blotches tesselation everywhere at the cost of 50% of your performance?

The high resolution patch, which should have originally been with the game mind you, is of good quality which I do not mind.

Does anyone believe that this will be a trend of originally PC companies will follow for years to come or will it end eventually so that us PC gamers do not have to worry about unoptimization, poor console to pc ports, and online game issues?

Also, if Witcher 3's lead platform is 360, if they create a new one, I am going to die inside.

That's weird, I've never seen a dramatic framerate drop like that ever while playing. Yea adding the DX11 patch and high res maps did overall cause my FPS to go down on average, but I dont have any weird spikes like that. Something else going on? thinking.gif

Nope. Nothing. No background processes or anything. My specs are Intel Core i5-2500k @ Stock, Seagate Barracuda Green 1TB, EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC 2GB, 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair Vengance DDR3 1600MHz 1.5V, Cooler Master Silent Pro M850 and I am running the game at 1440x900 so there should not be any issues.

In DX11 I turn tesselation off and the problem still persists. In DX9 I put everything to Ultra and there are no issues as such. Very weird. Not even BF3 has any issues like that with me (Ultra w/o 4xmsaa but post high).

DX11 has always been terribad for me in this game.

Which reminds me, why is there no DX9 option for Battlefield 3 if its technically a console port?

Console gamers are a much bigger market than PC gamers. People who develop games want to make money, that's just how it is. We need to hope that there will always be grassroots PC game developers or a PC department of a larger developer.

As far as the DX11, of course there is a performance hit, you don't get something for nothing and that's the nature of hardware-intensive games. I didn't see a hit to the extent you're talking about though, still ran smooth on my sig rig.

1) Money speaks?
2) Not interested in PC version (again, money speaks)
