How is the GPU usage in Battlefield 3 multiplayer for 2x 7970? - Page 7

It's the engine. It simply doesn't like Nvidia too well and favours AMD, people were bashing Nvidia about it blaming their drivers. Like i said earlier someone from Nvidia even said themselves it's nothing their end and actually to do with how the game is built.

thats is a sad excuse for unoptimized drivers plain and simple; if you talk about a game that NVIDIA/AMD worked closely with the publisher and in the end have better performance with that particular company then its ok.. BUT multi gpu scaling its the company to blame; AMD had crappy scaling or none at all (crysis 2 wich its clearly a nvidia tittle) AND YET they still could manage to fix it..


WHY NVIDIA CANT DO IT?!?!?!?

Try this. Lower you gpu clocks to stock and see if gpu usage goes up or if you are at stock increase clocks to see if usage goes down.

How is the GPU usage for 7970 in Crysis 2? 99% for both too?

Do you have a 120hert monitor? If not, out vsync on and stop worrying about. You'll never need more that two 670s in bf3 @ 1080p

I think you missed this post. His Ivy Bridge CPU @ 4.2GHz will perform almost identical to your Sandy Bridge CPU @ 4.5GHz.

I still think its system memory. You basically have no free memory and its just cached for, not sure if its bf3 or other programs but that would be my only guess. CPU usage is fine and GPU usage is fine too. Just think that's your issue man...

Yes I have and 99% of the time my FPS is below 120fps and the usage is at 70%, so if there is 30% for each card to be used, why it doesn't use??! mad.gif

What? I asked for GPU usage in Crysis 2...

I'm pretty sure it isn't bottleneck dude
