Mhmm, only way I can efficiently use a 470 and max out all games. x3 Plus it's my only monitor.

What program is being used to measure fps in those screenshots? Not FRAPS?

The built in rivatuner thing from MSI Afterburner. it measures FPS, temps, frequencies, how much vram is being used. It's better than Fraps. :3

-Turn ON "Single Display Performance Mode" in nVidia Control Panel
-Turn ON "Prefer Maximum Performance" in nVidia Control Panel
Finally, once all settings are complete and you're happy with performance, set XML to READ only.
My specific problem with my single 680@1440p was that it would randomly drop GPU usage and play at 30FPS intermittently. Was driving me nuts and it works like a charm now, so above are my settings that cured+added FPS.
*All of my settings are at Ultra except Shadows which are at Very High and the said tweaks above. 50-60 FPS@1440p, Adaptive.
*I have collective mods 1.6 release compatible with 1.0.4 - latest Ubi Patch.

I have the rig in my sig and this fix has eliminated 90% of the stutter. Really glad I saw your post, thanks man!

Just tried this with my sig rig. Crashed 14 minutes into just free-roaming. I don't know how I was able to finish this game with minimal crashing before all these useless patches. But since they started patching, this game is unplayable for me. I have tried literally everything. This is the only game I have had this problem with that I can't seem to fix. frown.gif

Usually I find DSOG performance reviews informative however they missed the boat big time IMO with this performance review of FC3.

http://www.dsogaming.com/pc-performance-analyses/far-cry-3-is-the-most-optimized-pc-game-of-2012-pc-performance-analysis/

Wat do you guys feel? I think 'most optimised' is an extreme statement from an otherwise fairly subtle site.
post #1339 of 1920
Signature Rig:

1080P, HBAO, 4X MSAA, Ultra

In town: ~40
Dirt road w/ forest on either side: ~50-60
Looking out at the ocean: ~60
Running through forest: ~30-40

I would say my over all average is somewhere around 40-45. GPU utilization bounces all over the place, sometimes being pegged at 100% usage on both cards all the way down to 60% at other times. FPS takes a corresponding dip when GPU utilization drops. Overall I find the game to be hella fun, but the performance/optimization is disappointing.
post #1340 of 1920
My FPS is all over the place whatever I try. 44fps to 220fps. Occasional movement lag. GPU ram used can go to1200MB+ that I've spotted and I only have 1536MB. Love the game, just wouldn't say overly optimised for my hardware, and my hardware should be overkill I would have thought.
