GTX 670 SLI concern- Max Payne 3 and BF3/Crysis issue.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys, the specs are in my Sig, except It is 4.6GHZ and my cards are now Gigabyte OC GTX 670 4GB SLI.

It seems my cards are not running optimally, I see people get higher FPS with same cards and even with weaker cards.

Here is Max Payne 3, Everything at Absolute Maximum settings @1920x1080, FXAA- Very High and MSAA-8X

I get 45-52 FPS, Is this normal? I was reading a bit of old topics and youtube videos and they have the same settings running at 100+ FPS.


Battlefield 3 is another issue:SLI scaling onBF3 is a mixed bag, some Maps run perfect like Alborz Mountain scaling usually 70+(80-130fps) while Bandar Desert it is 50-60 and FPS cant hit below 60FPS, which I find Unacceptable.(4XMSAA and all settings max@ 1920x1080 with fov at 85)

Crysis... cant believe that the GTX 570 in sli was giving me more steady FPS hitting over 60 and not falling below 50, GTX 670's...however is all over the place.

Some games they work perfectly as expected, like Unigine benchmark I get:
FPS:
86.1
Scores:
2169
Min FPS:
38.2
Max FPS:
221.6

Which seem normal,Help me out here guys am I being paranoid? CPU is idling at 40-45C due to this insane heat in Australia, hits up to 60-72C in Intense gaming for 2-3+ hours.(On heavy Games)

I can tell you about the BF3 issues.
Some of the BF3 maps are way bigger than other, and that causes your CPU to work harder, since you are rendering more terrain.


Also, why need more than around 30+ FPS? Our eyes are only able to see around 30 images per second..

You can feel it, it's smoother and higher fps means slightly faster response time.

Any Help guys? I see a GTX 690 at Full max settings with 8XMSAA and FXAA on Very High, hit over 100FPS, heck they even run a higher resolution then me.

I'm confused as what is going on, obviously my GTX 670's are not being used properly in Max Payne 3, here is my 3D Mark 2011 score on Performance mode:

Anyone with a similar setup as mine mind sharing their results even old results when you were playing it?

Not really sure. Your usage, vram, and temps all seem good in the MP3 screenshot you posted. What drivers have you tried?

On these cards? I have only used the BETA 310.64.

It is really weird how in some games and Unigine+3D Mark 2011 I get results as I'm supposed to while games like Max Payne 3/BF3 and now Crysis 1 I get weird performance.
