I have read somewhere that shadows do look better on DX11. Besides that, i have no clue really.

sorry guys been real busy lately. i added my rig to my signature (i hope). Ano no i have not tried with the cap 2 profile, i will give that a try. my original idea was to install 12.11 with one card as it has worked on a single gpu in the past then try and enable crossfire later, but honestly im terrified to try. the second to last timeit crashes and took my motherboards sound with it, dont want that happening again.

You forgot to add if you own a 7950 or a 7970 in CFX, to avoid future questions wink.gif

Sorry to hear many people here are getting horrible performance. I have a single 7950 and on Ultra 1080p, and 2xMSAA, I never go under 48fps and most of the time are at 60fps or higher. I'm on the latest 11 Beta as well as the CAP2.

The only clear difference is the soft shadows. Shadows in the distance or further away from the base of the object casting them will have a soft edge. In DX9 the shadows have a had edge everywhere.
There is supposed to be better lighting in DX11 too. I can't really see the difference though. Take a game like Stalker or Metro and the DX11 makes a real difference, here all it really does it cut your FPS in half.

I have serious doubts about those as well. I just dont see how that big a difference can arise.

I am real glad you are enjoying your amazing Far Cry 3 experience. Dude seriously stop being a tool...i mean it s a game and I am having problems running it on my rig. What about that is difficult for you to understand?? Am i lying? Do i have something against an otherwise brilliant game?? I think not.

So quit your childish shenanigans...fact is I personally and along with a whole bunch of people, according to the poll, are having frame rate issues. Why do you have to fight that? Fanboy!!!!

You are definitely not supposed to get such low fps..... I used to get performance issues with NFS most wanted 2 too, but right now, idk what i did, the only thing i changed was driver, and mobo's bios update, i always get 60fps max settings, and sometimes in tunnels it goes to 53~fps or so on a single card.
Hardwaredecoder (ironic name) doesnt want to believe anyone else but wants to state his experience as the norm. I dont blame you....he has his own ideas about things and simply wont quit.

Strange thing is he is doing exactly what he was blaming me of....not believing other people's performance numbers and as an extension of that, their experience. Oh the irony of it all....

As for shadows i have to agree with that, but i mean other differences... I don't see tessellation for example, but i'm getting about 20+fps lower performance than with DX9 xD bad optimization i know...

And sheeeeeeeesh!, even in sli i get 56fps avg hahaha. it's really laughable, on single card i get 27-34 fps... I guess for some reason Dx11 was not turned on whenever i just ran it without admin. The stuff that surprises me is that... I don't really see a difference in dx11 and dx9.. The only difference i see is that my fps stays at 60 or above in dx9 tongue.gif
