crappy FPS in rift

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I think I had a thread on this, but cannot find it anymore. My sig rid and on 20+ people raid, I drop down to like 15 fps at ultra settings. What gives?

You don't quite have enough hardware to run RIFT in Ultra for raiding purposes at 2560x1440p. Rift doesn't make great use of SLI or Crossfire, so you're basically running 1.2x-1.5x of the performance a single 6950 in the game, which isn't enough to handle that 1440p monitor. You might need a bigger single graphics card - 7970 GE or a GTX 780 would be a good match.

Rift's also single-core optimized, a mild CPU overclock might boost FPS a little. I know I can go from 25 to about 30 FPS in Meridian on my rig just by pumping the 3930K from stock 3.8 GHz boost to 4.2 GHz.

Make sure you turn off Anti-Aliasing under the Video/Advanced settings and see if that helps. You might not notice much difference at 1440p on a 27". AA is disabled by default in Ultra settings, turning it on is a huge GPU drain. Also consider setting shadows to "Environment" instead of full.

CPU is already overclocked to 4.5 GHz. I will turn crossfire off for Rift - think I can do it with RadeonPro. Realize my GPU's are bit underpowered for 1440p monitor, but thought it can do rift on ultra. I can do Bioshock infinity on high without a hitch - on ultra I have occasional hick up, but can still run it pretty decent; by that I thought rift would be cake.
