Is it just me?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I had recently purchased Gigabyte's OC edition gtx 660 which seemed like a good deal for Rs.15000. But I dont seem to be getting the performance that others (forget the benchmarks) get. Some report 50-60FPS on Far Cry 3 with all details maxed out except for AA (off). Mine doesnt even manage to get past the 30-45FPS range. Although interestingly, it WAS performing good until lately all of a sudden (Yeah IKR? weird). GTA 4 plays like crap, 60FPS at random spots, and I turn my mouse a bit and boom!, 29FPS.

I have a pretty good 80plus GS 600W with 48Amps on the 12v and I'm also:mad:wackosmiley.gif sure there's not any chance of bottlenecking as the 2500k is quite fast and holds up to the mark. I just need to know if this is all I can expect out of my card or there might be any issues with it. FYI I did try clean driver installs and tried 310.70, 310.90, 313.96 but there's no luck.

Card's temps are kind of okay as well, ranging from 32C(idle) to 50-60C(Load). Any suggestions would be welcome, thanks!

Hi AVR512,

I just purchased the same card for my i5 3570k build. I've been only playing Mechwarrior online, but I don't seem to have any issue with maxing out the settings and turning on AA . Also, this is at full HD resolution 1920 x 1080. I'm curious to why you're seeing a performance drop off.

Hmm... So you're running a 1920 x 1080 monitor with a 660....

Honestly, your performance is just about right. Far Cry 3 is a tremendously demanding game. Tom's Hardware reports that a GTX 660ti will only pull about 30 frames under Ultra settings at 1080. Thus, your 660 pulling 30 frames with some AA disabled sounds about right.

GTA is just a horribly coded game that chokes on a lot of hardware configurations that it really should run fine on. That's not a GPU problem, that's just a terrible coding job.

Interesting! I never though about that.

is your 2500k overclocked?

also, SOMETIMES people here like to inflate their numbers just a bit. That, or they have very nice overclocks and a beautiful CPU

PS: FarCry 3 and GTA4 aren't exactly none for their stellar optimization.

Nope, all components on their stock speeds. smile.gif

Uhm.. I definitely think not buddy. As I mentioned earlier, I used to get 50-60FPS in FarCry 3, all maxed out with no AA. I'm sure the 660Ti would pull off somewhere between 60-70 easily. Just speculating.

I know frown.gif and I've seen a handful of users upload their gameplay to youtube stating they get 50-60FPS. How well does yours perform? What drivers do you use?
