Which is a fair improvement over my old Heaven runs...........

Keep in mind that my 670 FTW is just an average overclocker, nothing special. I expect others may be beating this by a fair margin.biggrin.gif


I don't think my Evga 670 FTW is an average overclocker. I got 53fps on mine. I can benchmark at 1300mhz/7000mhz, but when I play a game, I can only do +88 on my core, so around 1270-1280mhz core

Represent that FTW cards!

I NEVER had an issue with nvidias drivers until 310.xx too. I am getting annoyed i cant use my PC for gaming though at the moment as it crashes to desktop all the time.

My last AMD card the 6950, had driver issues too and i found AMD fixed issues on really old games that no-one ever plays rather than the latestest ones. They used to bring out a new cataylist driver every few weeks but none of them changed anything all the time i owed it. Not sure what they are like these days but if they are stable they are ahead of the game for now.

Don't troll me for being mad that I spent $400 on a GPU and the company that made it can't get the drivers to work properly for a large percentage of users.
Funny how you're sticking up for the same company that can't make BF3 run full screen in their latest WHQL for many users when it's been out as long as Skyrim rolleyes.gif

Huh? There's no defending, sticking up or trolling in my comment for you.

I relayed my experience switching from NV to AMD recently. If you don't agree that's fine but don't make stuff up about me ok, thanks.

Same. Always done clean installs and never had an issue, with game nor driver, until R310. When it works, it's amazing. AC3 with one card at 1400mhz/7000mhz is unbelievable. But I might just be having trouble with the games themselves, as I've only tried Ubisoft games, and we know they don't have the best track-record. About to try Hitman for the first time now, so, we'll see how that game pans out with these drivers.

I've been stuck with 310.54 for what feels like forever now. I've tried upgrading after every driver release, but there is always some issue that makes me revert. With so many people already voicing problems with these, I guess I won't even bother this time around.

Have you tried FC3 or AC3 with .54? Just wondering if it's the game or driver. Because on both .90 and .70 I get a horrible experience one way or another in these two games with SLI.

Ran the Hitman benchmark and it's not recognizing SLI! sozo.gifweirdsmiley.gifwackosmiley.gif

It seems that Nvidia will never fix bad PhysX performance with Kepler cards in Borderlands 2 mad.gif Friend with GTX 570 has better fps than me in that game and that's just plain wrong. I play with PhysX on low and still get drops to 40fps in battles which feels awful when you are used to higher framerates. I'm not alone with this problem, some even get fps drops with GTX 680 SLI. My card gets normal results in benchmarks and other games. Metro 2033 was another disappointment, I know AMD is far better than Nvidia in it but low performance still surprised me. I may switch to AMD when their next gen cards are released.

I haven't, but it's worth a go. FC3 and AC3 are relatively new games though, so drivers predating those games may have issues. They have been rock solid for me in everything I've played though.

Yes that's the most disappointing part of it for me. When it is running good, the performance gain I see in BF3 and Far Cry 3 is awesome, but they both have that weird clock drop and then subsequently FPS drop....annoying.

I'm going to post my findings from another thread in here. This may help explain some of the issues in BF3.

Originally from here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1344795/bf3-stuttering/0_30#post_19001746

BF3 benchmark details (Click to show)
System specs:

i5 3570k (stock)
ASrock Z77 Extreme 4
eVGA GTX 660 Ti FTW Sig 2 (stock) - 310.90 forceware drivers
8GB DDR3 1600mhz RAM (9-9-9-24-2T)
128GB Crucial M4 SSD
500GB WD Caviar Blue HDD
3TB Segate Baracuda 7200.14
Corsair TX-650 PSU (first gen)
Windows 8 Pro
Dell U2412M monitor (1920x1200)


Game: BF3
Map: Caspian Border
Players: 64
benchmark times: 2 minutes each
Benchmark program: FRAPS

Settings: 1920x1200
Ultra settings
AA - variable (see below)

Ultra, 4xAA - no vsync



Ultra, No AA - adaptive vsync



Ultra, No AA - no vsync



High preset, no AA, no vsync.




I find it interesting that at max settings, the game performance is phenomenal. However, as soon as you start trying to limit the card in any way, be it taking away AA, putting adaptive vsync on, or even set settings to high, it bites your head off in the form of framerate stuttering. This is REALLY disappointing. My 7870 plays the game well at Ultra settings, but when you scale back the settings or put a limiter on it, it takes it in stride without issue.

Now that I've noticed this, I believe it when people tell me that they have no issues running BF3 @ ultra with a Kepler GPU on the 310.90 drivers. There is no issue at all there. However, anyone that introduces a limiter into the equation is met with harsh results. That's the REAL issue here.

Conclusion: This is NOT user error. I know it looks like user error, but this should not be happening for any reason. When you increase framerates (or attempt to limit them) the system should respond accordingly with performance that fits the new situation. I'm a little baffled that this is happening, especially on Nvidia's GK104 lineup of GPUs. If you attempt to inflate the framerates by lowering the settings, the game starts stuttering. The reason some people don't notice is because the framerates are higher than most refresh rates on monitors, and thus, you just think it's your monitor that's having issues, not the GPU.

This needs to be fixed, and it needs to be fixed very soon.
