Really low FPS Far Cry 3

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I've had my rig running fine now for some time and i've just installed Far Cry 3,
when i crank the settings to the highest possible (except MSAA left on x4)
I get serious crappy fps, in the region of 25/30..

I should be able to run this game maxed out right?

Rig:

-i7 3930K @ 4.5Ghz
-2x 680GTX 4GB with sli enabled of course
-16gb DDR3 1866Mhz 4x4gb
-256SSD Samsung
-Rampage IV Extreme
-30" dell 2560x1600 resolution

*EDIT*

Far cry 3 doesn't utilize sli yet as one card has 99% load and the other 7%. I am running latest beta drivers but no difference as of yet.

My guess is that SLI might not be working yet...happens a lot with new games, but is typically fixed rather quickly. Have you seen GPU usage on both GPUs?

Though I didn't think this game was released yet...

Two possibilites:
Far Cry 3 is really demanding.
Far Cry 3 lacks SLI-profiles.

It's quite possible 680 SLI isn't able to do 4xMSAA in Far Cry 3, considering it's an AMD-optimized game and MSAA in deferred engines is really ROP/bandwidth-hungry

With that resolution you're using, and only one GPU being utilized....makes sense to me why you're experiencing the low FPS. Once an SLI profile is released, along with some updated drivers, it should improve.

I am sure it is more to with the SLI not working...especially if one GPU has les than 30% utilization.

Probably are just going to have to wait for a fix, robertwest. I doubt it will be long.

Heh, though I didn't know it was getting released that much earlier in Europe. Not that a few day matter anyway. I didn't realize it was that close to release...I thought it was later in the month than the fourth. A store might have just sold it as soon as it got the game in stock too.

Try using Nvidia update via control panel. They have updated the SLI profile for the DX11 exe of the game.
