GTX 590 SLI BAD FPS - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Well, I think the long and short is ... if all you wanted to play was CoD, you did, in fact, kinda waste your money on SLI 590's.

With something more challenging graphically like Metro, Crysis 2, BF3, or even Just Cause 2 ... in all likelihood, you'll see gains far more commensurate with the power of your rig.

But essentially there's very little out there that you can't max out handily on a single GTX590 (at least not on a single screen) so it's really not the best bang-for-buck setup to go with tbh.

The reason that one (should) be getting a really high-end GPU setup for is not so you can get "LOOK ZOMG!!! 1,000FPS!!!1!" in some easy-to-run game. You get them so you can max every setting out on the toughest to run games, so you can hold a steady 60 or 120FPS at all times, whereas lesser cards cannot. IOW, it's about getting a high "max playable settings" on every game ... not about raw FPS numbers.

If you maintain a 60fps average, what will your minimum fps be then? I would rather it be at 100+ with minimum not dipping below 70. So no. Anything above the refresh rate of your monitor is not completely pointless.

i've worked on a rig that had 2x GTX 590 before and seen it in action with a 3d 120hz monitor, this thing was a beast. it destroyed BF3 everything ultra with/without 3d. i really think you should enable vsync when playing with such high fps, it makes the game smoother. try it smile.gif

Did you try Doom 2 to see what kinda sick fps you get? No seriously go benchmark with 3d Mark 11 and tell us your scores and then we can talk about if your rig is underperforming.

Yea I know what you mean man. I've tried out vsync for a while and the slight, even the slightest mouse lag, drove me insane. I would rather the experience be smooth with just plainly high fps rather than have it smooth because of vsync.

Correct me if I am wrong but the mouse lag(with my calculation), is somewhere around 50ms.

possibly you are pushing too much AA into that game

Well, with a cpu bottleneck, I would push as much antialiasing and graphics settings as I can to stay above 80% gpu usage at 720p.

I don't know what AA has to do with this lol.

He did not say 60fps average, did he? He said any framerate above your monitors refresh rate is pointless. A point which is argued by many when it comes to responsiveness ... however if the point is 'how it looks' then he's correct.
