Crysis 3 terrible optimization or not?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm having a hard time right now because my 2500k 4.3 Ghz and GTX 680 at 1250/7000 apparently can only get 1080p 60fps vsynced on medium settings and only fxaa. Now vsync is a must for me because I've gotten used to it and C3, just like C2, has enormous amount of screen tear, even if I lock it at 60fps.
The texture is set to max, and it uses about 1.5-1.7 gb, so that's not the problem. I know the game looks decent at medium but at high looks great and very high a little bit better. But let's assume very high is for SLI setups, I should be able to maintain 60 fps vsynced at high settings honestly, since this is the 2nd most powerful single GPU ? after the 7970 GHz edition.

Or maybe its not optimized yet, which brings me to the point of this thread:

how does your system do at vsync/1080p/fxaa?

Sorry to hear you are having trouble getting the most out of this game. Personally my rig runs Crysis 3 beta at 1080p 120hz maxed (Ultra) settings MSAA x2 at 30+ fps although I had to tweak my gtx 480's power management mode in the NVidia control panel to 'prefer maximum performance' to avoid indiscriminate gpu throttling during gameplay.

You may want to consider changing this default NVidia game profile option and see if it helps improve your frame rates, as im sure it will. Best of luck.

im not sure if its a bug or if something stays disabled but if you switch to low graphics then back to the highest frame rate becomes ALOT better im wondering if there is some kind of bug in one of the effects.

quick tip if running multi gpu alt tab out the game then go back into it the game use gpuz or msi afterburner to confirm both gpus are @ full load i had this problem and this is what i have to do to get full gpu utilization 2nd gpu also make sure vsync is off i have a single 6990 i run everything on high and get anywhere from 60 to 120 fps on on average i cant run very high cause for some reason the game starts to show heavy glitching this has also been reported by other ati users hope this helps. gpu on water @ 1010mhz/1500mhz

maybe...i was expecting something a little better than the beta, but the first stage in single player slugged my system so bad,15fps on high no aa. I didn't understand because it didnt look THAT much better than other games I have playing at 1080p and yet the performance was so bad. had to set my res to 720p, low gfx everything and 2x smaa to make it playable....maybe it is optimization or all the little things they updated graphic wise.........
