Far cry 3 frame drop issue

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello, i have checked for similar issues in the search and found only a brief mention of it. while playing far cry 3 on preset ultra and HBAO and msaa 2x i usually get a steady 60 fps with Vsync on. as listed below i have a 670 ftw on 1080p monitor. i noticed the previous night a slow framrate and when i put on fraps i noticed it had locked at 30 fps. so i put on precision x and noticed the fram rate drop and also saw that gpu usage dropped to 50% and power dropped to 70%. so i have looking for any trends and have found none, sometimes it will lock inside, outside, while staring at a wall, and sometimes looking out into the openings. i do not understand what is going on, so i seek the wisdom of this site lol. if i did miss similar posts i apologize, and please just direct me elsewhere.

sorry for puting the attachment on with word, couldnt get it to go on any other way.

Check in-game Video menu if Vsync is set to 2 frames (30fps), if so, set it to 1 frame (60fps).
