Kepler and Ivy Bridge falling short in BF3? - Page 3

post #21 of 191
Sometimes, with this stuff, you just need to go back to basics. Make sure cables are seated properly, same with ram, run some driver cleaners and re-install. Make sure your using EVGA drivers an not Nvidias. My next step would be downloading hardware monitor if you don't have it already, and running some becnhmarks that stress both cpu and gpu. Comparing 3d marks should help you figure out where your falling short, not every 680 is perfect, you could very well need to RMA.

yes ^^ check all of your cables. great point. I've seen a cable being just barely unplugged do some weird things

Like I said, I'm at work atm, but I will check it out when i get home. I think the cables aren't the problem, as I've taken apart my whole system and put it back together. I only have necessary processes running (ESET anti-virus and windows itself and a couple other trivial things) which honestly wouldn't be the culprit. I hope I don't have to RMA, but it's been the same story since day 1. I got the gtx 680 the day it was released (about 40 days ago) so idk if there's some 30 RMA limit or what. I got it straight from EVGA's website.

P.S. my hard drive just failed on the pc I was using, so they swapped my computer out. ***! lol

Idk if this would make a difference, but I read somewhere to put the setting to "prefer maximum performance" under nvidia control panel. I don't see why it wouldn't perform as it should under stock settings though.


How do I check the driver versions? Do I just go into device manager?
post #25 of 191
NVIDIA control panel will list driver version. Or GPU-Z if you have that.

Running benchmarks is a good idea. Also might check your BIOS and make sure that the video card isn't running at x4 or something.

It could always be hardware failure (GPU, PSU, motherboard).

EDIT: Oh, and please do monitor your CPU-, GPU-, RAM-, VRAM-usage and all temps while gaming. Might give you an idea where the problem is.

ok cool. yea it is strange that set up should tear apart bf3 at that resolution.

it seemed like there was an "nvidia recommended settings" type of thing in the control panel. < thats what it should be set on. is that what your talking about there? ^^

I'm not sure. I just read it somewhere while searching for an answer. I've seen it visually drop low without having fraps on too. Keep in mind this card has been on 2 almost entirely different set ups....just got new mobo, processor, and case this week with and a new monitor with different resolution not too long ago. I have a good PSU, RAM, and liquid cooling on my CPU (never had any problems with any of those 3). My hard drive, and peripherals are farely new as well (mouse, keyboard, dvd player, headset) I'm just trying to cover all the bases to show that many things have change but this has remained consistantly a problem.

PS...fraps was on and not recording just to get a benchmark

This is just really frustrating for me, having spent this much on my system trying to make it better to just fall behind.

What settings do you have in BF3?
I could see 4xMSAA and Ultra+Motion Blur+HBAO dipping a 680 below 60FPS in multiplayer.
Singleplayer, no.
