But that's with the 3930k @ 4.6Ghz and the Lightnings at the stock 1202mhz tongue.gif This game is kicking my 3930k's ass even at 4.6Ghz, what a sight biggrin.gif So well-optimized too, so demanding but great usage and great framerate. The 'new (and better) Crysis' anyone?
Runs absolutely perfect with the 310.64's and the 1.01 patch.

Well optimized, runs worse than Crysis 1, and looks worse in 90% of the cases.
Looks like Far Cry 1 at mid to long distances.

Yeah, dont hang on a HW forum if you dont know what optimized is.



And here is Far Cry 1


They really screwed up the fire too, does it look like there was a big fire here 5 seconds ago? I think not.


And you spent like what, 3000 on that PC to run a game that dont even get close to Crysis in most cases, at only 100 fps? D: Sure who needs more than 100, but still.
On a single card, with my 680 I get 50 on average, and it looks like the screens above.

Right. Because it runs beautifully it's so horribly done rolleyes.gif How many games have either low usage, max out a core, or run the GPU at full load with only 30fps? You think Metro's looks justify its framerate? Sorry for thinking Far Cry 3 runs so well.

Right, I spent all that money on one game. Great. love to make things personal. Those type of people seem to be popping up more and more these days. Only 100fps? rolleyes.gif
It uses all 6 cores, and SLI works great while giving me 120fps 90% of the time, so I don't see why I should complain. That's more than I can say about a lot of other games I have.

Yes, only 100 fps when it looks like it does, it has terrible LOD and Poor view distances.
Textures are highly repeated and most of them are quite low res (mainly speaking of terrain)
The grass is the same everywhere, no variation to that, and it looks like it belongs in a celshaded game rather than one trying to look realistic.
The SSAO/AO settings make everything have a black outline, kinda like the celshaded look!
The water, is poorly done, no waves or anything, just two flat decals moving in diff directions with a glossy surface and speculars.
No destruction other than barrels and some fences.
Heck, even the 360 version looks the same as this game does, with the exception of slightly better textures and extra features such as Antialiasing and higher LOD on Geometry.

My CPU runs at 60% in FC3. GPU at 99%.
But wait, my GPU runs at 99% in Arma 2 too, does that make it optimized? Think not.

It uses 6 cores...must be optimized. The only answer!
BF3 uses 6 cores too they say, but an i3 outperforms the bulldozers and 1090t. biggrin.gif

My point exactly. Arma 2 doesn't look nearly as good yet stresses the system just as badly for a MUCH lower framerate. Hence my previous point of games like Arma2 and Metro running horribly, and Far Cry 3 running great. Looks are subjective, as seen by the poll in this thread. But comparing Arma2 or Metro to Far Cry 3 is exactly my point.

Now you're making fun of me for being glad there's a much more even load across all 6 cores than most games. Jeez, attack someone else for a while.

Just ignore him. Nice system buddy, and this game does own. Yea no need for anyone to make it personal..

Anyone in here on a 7950/7970? I'm on Ultra @ 1080p, with 2xMSAA, Alpha Coverage disabled, GPU Buffer to 1, VSync to 1, and SSAO, and I'm getting about 55 average. Lowest I've ever seen it go was 44 and that's in the beginning location with all the lights and people and such. I'm on 12.10 as well, any word on FC3 driver updates for us? Would love to stay at a constant 60, really bugging me that it's not.

But done much more poorly, fire is nolonger cool as it doesnt affect the enviroment, just turns green into a darker shade of green.

Its also stupid that a bird can kill you in 2 hits, but a tiger needs 3.
And a Buffalo can take 3 mags of 1911 into its head before it dies + drive into it beforehand.

Anyhow missions are like this: Go from A to B - Kill everything. And repeat this til youre done with the game.
I mean sure, some like killing all the time. But I expected more exploration, and the cave missions to be less, shoot bad guys and more... survive the mean animals, traps and such.

Not to mention the atrocious AI.. they randomly drive into walls and keep accelerating, into mountains, cliffs, rocks and what not.
They sometimes drive into their own people, they hop in and out of their cars and repeat that, sometimes they hop in a car, drive 3 meters back, hop out and hop back in and drive 5 meters forwards. And they really enjoy standing out in the open when in a firefight. And seem to always know where you are, as they sometimes shoot before you even appear in THEIR vision.

You do realize that if none of that happened then this would be the first PC game in history to not require a patch? biggrin.gif
How many attempts to fix DX11 in Arkham City? I don't even think if I ran AC tonight I'd be able to get full GPU-usage/120fps yet (they may have fixed it after I beat it but finally got tired of waiting for a functioning patch, so I don't know, I'll give it another go someday). This game just came out how long ago? If all you do is focus on the negative side of things all the time, then don't do a Day 1 purchase.
You expect a perfect PC game the week it comes out and I'm the one that's out of place on a PC forum?

I am telling you, he is one of the ones you don't even talk to.

Yea AC is a big joke. It runs better on a 360 than it does on pc (does look like crap obviously) it is so beautiful on pc but runs like total garbage whenever I am outside. Indoors is perfectly fine however for the most part.
