Crysis 3 : 20-30% Framerate and Performance Boost (CPU-Limited Users Only)

post #1 of 133
Thread Starter 
For those of you who are CPU limited and are tired of the low performance in Crysis 3, you may want to check out this video. If you are GPU capped, then you likely won't see any benefit. My results were a 27% FPS increase on a 4945MHz i7 3770K with Tri-Sli GTX 680's. GPU's still had room to go so even 2-card SLI setups should get the same result.

Watched your vid and while I don't have C3, is this something that may work with other games? Seems very interesting! thumb.gif

Edit: Get it from here: http://www.lucashale.com/timerresolution/TimerResolution.zip

Don't know why the OP doesn't embed the vid and makes us go to that forum... seems weird. That's the original source of the app. rolleyes.gif

I use it for some games. Almost none have had this much of an effect. Because most games aren't so horrible with CPU utilization. I initially used that along with disabling HPET to reduce microstutter from SLI setups.

Doesn't help me, even lowers my frame-rate by ~5%.

But that could be b/c my CPU is already being 100% used?

This seems interesting...
I'll try it out and post my results later.
