Hey guys - got a question about SLI 680 + what res to put it on etc.

I played singleplay for around 30mins (was testing - and happy to say: no crashes, as I recently went SLI).
My FPS was sitting at the 100FPS mark - which was impressive.

I have EVERYTHING on ULTRA -
Below was an old screenshot - but now I got AA POST to HIGH (max)



I've left AA deferred to OFF. When I put it to 4x - I got stuttering -> My 2GB VRAM limit I'm wanting to guess.
What do you guys suggest?

I am running 1440p on my QNIX, with 680s in SLI.
http://www.overclock.net/forums/threads/smilies/
I should note my GPUs got to a mental 87c. They are both running stock.
Clip was recorded less than 10 days ago.
Since there's only been 1 patch - and that one patch had no notes about patching this.
I'll check again tonight to be sure.


i have a similar set up (680s 4gbs in sli on a u2711). the 680s are slightly overclocked (+100mhz). I have everything on ultra, 2x msaa, no anti-post, and resolution scale at 130. I cap fps in nvidia inspector at 60, and the only map that I have to adjust the resolution scale down to remain at 60fps is firestorm. i play mostly 64 player maps-- on 32 player maps I can adjust the reso scale up to 140-150 and still be at 60fps with no prob.

edit: also my gpus never get over 70 degrees--87 sounds kinda high brother.

you have 4GB ones though.

As for 70degrees - yeah that's the norm for me on a single setup.
That's why I was surprised to see 87!

Any reason behind you turning off aa post and having 2x msaa?
I really want to know what is good or bad for that setup.

yeah i have a couple side intake fans that seem to keep the gpus pretty cool. on my ipad so cant see your setup and case but wonder if you could add a fan pointed at your gpus?

the aa post just seemed to make things a little blurry--the picture seems sharper to me with aa post off. i should have also mentioned that I have a sweetfx+efx combo running too, and hbao in game.

that would give the GPUs less air.
So don't know if that's a good idea.

I wonder what's up w/ that? Memory leak? Problem for me?

Anyone else?

How much RAM does the bf4.exe process use for you guys?

Mine usually taps out around 1.8gb usage, 1680 x 1050 res, all low settings.
post #21609 of 29735
i would help ya dubbed but im running 1080p.
i have no real clue but i think aa deferred and res scaling accomplishes the same thing.
and turn your hbao into ssao. less of a hit. i run my totally off.

are you running nvcp quality settings on highest quality or quality or performance? what about the aa settings in nvcp? performance sli or quality sli?

OK so I went back to Windows 7 on a fresh install. I'm not sure what you guys are talking about, but to me anyway the performance drop is pretty big. In Windows 8 BF4 is butter smooth on every map. In windows 7 their are times where it is like a slide show. And I get some nice micro stutter. Actually I'm getting the same problems that guy was getting in the you tube video. I think DirectX 11.2 has alot to do with the performance of BF4. Having 11.2 can make all the difference in the world in terms of performance. I really hate Windows 8, but I need BF4 to run smooth so its back to Windows 8 :-(
