I don't think there is. I've seen talk of people wanting to use one but not having any success getting it to work via traditional methods.

Yeah, and when you turn it off you'll be at 60+ FPS. That's half your performance gone from the ENB alone because with that nice 3gb of VRAM texture mods are never going to be an issue really..

For me, running my own Skyrim ENB, with Skyrim fully loaded, I'm at 40-45FPS average outdoors. If I disable ENB I'll be hitting 60FPS outdoors easily. More if I had v-sync disabled.

Just because we can run it, it doesn't mean it cannot be intensive. Start bumping up the quality settings and it will easily bring even some of the stronger systems to their knees. An example of this, I did a comparison of K-ENB and Unreal Cinema and K-ENB was more intensive in places by upto 20FPS. The main cause being its Ambient Occlusion and Depth of Field settings.

Actually... if you're only getting 30FPS, taking into account your CPU and that you are using the same GPU a me (bar brand), it begs the question... what ENB are you using? Or do you have ugrids, ini, etc maxxed out aswell? Because with your setup, even with mods, you should be at a minimum of 45FPS with the majority of ENB profiles unless they are really pushing the Ambient Occlusion and Depth of Field settings hard.
If I remember correctly I'm using The Wilds ENB. And that 30 is generally only seen in Whiterun with the Whiterun In Autumn Mod on. Most of the time it is around 40-45. That's with the highest SSAO and setting the ENB offers.

I think you should be getting more out of it. You have a good CPU that kicks mine to the curb and your performance isn't really much better. Are you running modified ini's?

 

If you haven't already done so run your textures through this.

 

Texture Optimizer

 

You'll be surprised how at even minimum compression rates it can make a difference. Don't worry about messing them up or anything because it makes a backup (in a folder called Textures Backup in the main area of your primary hard drive) that you can just unzip then copy and paste back over if you need to. Just don't overwrite the backup with further optimizations or you'll have the next compressed textures as your backup.

 

In general I compress anything over 2048 and then reinstall character mod textures, like armour and weapons, etc (I have especially made files for this personally). I also use a custom race so that NPC skins are compressed but my characters skin and hair is full, saving performance on the general population while keeping my character looking great.

Could never get ENB to work on Skyrim, was probably doing something wrong because I don't really understand ENB. But anyway, nice shots all. Especially love the GTAIV and Skyrim shots.

Would the mods other then my ENB possibly be the unknown variable?

I have a guide with pictures on Skyrim ENB installation here at the bottom of the file page.

 

Maybe you might find it handy.

I certainly wouldn't discount the idea, but I think running the optimizer is good practice anyway and I am confident you would likely see an improvement. You would be surprised at how many modders don't do a great job of optimizing their textures, though that doesn't count for all of them of course.

 

It's also worth noting I run Beautiful Whiterun along with the new Skyrim Flora Overhaul & Ultimate Lush Overhaul, so Whiterun is pretty intensive on my system also.

 

Lastly, The Wilds ENB is a good ENB but is rather performance hungry aswell. More so than it used to be. I do speak from experience having featured it on my website a few weeks back (not just blindly saying it), so naturally I had a good play with it too. It's not quite as intensive as, say, K-ENB (which is probably the most performance hungry ENB I've ever used lol) but the DoF is very intense, as is K-ENB's (I think they use the same files or similar from what I recall the last time I looked at them), and it does go for higher quality on the Ambient Occlusion.

 

Obviously higher quality comes at the price of performance, it's just a question of whether it's worth soaking up all those FPS for it. You'll likely find you could make a few edits here and there to some parts and get a bit back. Especially in the DoF.

Well I installed the optimizer and didn't really see much of a boost in performance in Whiterun but I'll test in more in depth as I play. Thanks for the advice
