Crysis 1 framerate problems

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've recently decided to play through all of the Crysis games, so I'm starting with the original. I have noticed that my framerate sits around 40 FPS on max settings. My PC has SLI 680s and a 2600k so it kind of annoys me that a game as old as Crysis, despite how good it looks, doesn't ever sit in the 60s and sometimes dips to the 20s. I last updated my drivers earlier today. Any ideas on what could be the problem?

I think the problem is your GPUs are weak. You should probably upgrade to at least SLI Titans if you wanna max that game...

In all seriousness though, try turning off vsync in game and forcing it through nvidia control panel. That should fix it.

Edit: Plus that game is not optimized very well at all.

I have VSync off in game, but I'll definitely try forcing it off in the control panel. I know that part of it is that the engine doesn't have fantastic support for newer cards, and with good reason. It's just a little bit frustrating, you know?

Thnx for making me laugh bud, that was pretty good lol thumb.gif

@SaxSalute...I would uninstall the driver in safe mode and reinstall again. I'm doing the same thing replaying all of the Crysis games, and i'm getting 70-90 FPS all maxed out with some mods 2560x1080 downsampled with my GTX 590.

Your cards are way better and you should be getting 120-150 minimum...also don't know if you patched your game???

Yeah I know what you mean. Honestly though you should by no means be dipping into the 20s when you are playing. What's your CPU and GPU usage when you're playing?

Give me a minute to get those numbers estabya. For some reason, Afterburner isn't giving me the overlay in Crysis right now.

That def should not be happening since I get like 25-40 FPS with a HD 5770 at 1680x1050 on Very High minus motion blur and minus AA.

LOL I had like 30fps playing with a 570 with AA in Crysis Warhead.

With SLI 680's you honestly should be seeing 60fps with max AA.

http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU12/372

You should have almost 90 fps with SLI 680's. It doesn't have the best optimization but come on guys.... The game has been able to be maxed since the GTX 480, I don't know what your problem is. Try disabling all overlays.

You're having a driver problem..

I have 2500K @ 4.5GHz and HD7950 @ 1050/1750MHz , in Crysis I have over 60 FPS, all settings on Very High and AA 8x, 1920 x 1080.


CHEERS..
