GTX 760 and Bioshock Infinite

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Edit: Forgot to mention I am using 1080p with the Ultra preset setting in the game.

Just wondering if anyone has Bioshock Infinite and a GTX 760. Does your FPS drop occasionally or is it high all the time? Mine drops to about 20 fps every once in a while but stays above 60 on average. For example here is a result from running FRAPS for about 20 minutes:

Frames: 106781 - Time: 1049372ms - Avg: 101.757 - Min: 22 - Max: 207

So my average was 101 fps, but I hit 22 fps at one point. I can feel it when this happens, and it happens more often than I would like it to. Just wondering if there is something I can do...

I have:

AMD Piledriver FX-4300 Vishera 3.8GHz 4 Core
ASUS M5A97
8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz
600W Corsair GS
500GB 7200 RPM HD
MSI GTX 760, this one specifically: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127745

My GTX 760's fans don't go above 42% and 70c.

Some more information: I just installed the drivers from Nvidia. I didn't install any of the MSI software that came on the CD. Also, I never updated my motherboard chipset drivers (did a clean install of Windows 7). The reason is because when I try install them, it wants to start off by installing the Catalyst display drivers. Seems silly to install AMD graphics drivers when I have a Nvidia card, and I heard bad things about keeping those drivers on your computer too. The chipset driver file was 800mb. Did I get the wrong one?

My graphics clock shows 1019 (from the Nvidia control panel). Doesn't seem right, shouldn't it be 1150 MHz? Maybe because I didn't install the CD software?



Sorry for all the questions, but I just want to make sure I am getting the most from the card. Some benchmarks I read show a minimum of 50fps on Bioshock Infinite with the card (http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2013/07/04/msi-geforce-gtx-760-twin-frozr-oc-2gb-revie/4), however their test was only 40 seconds long.

Thanks.

That might just be your CPU mate.
Did you by any chance feel any delay in frames? Like stuttering?
If it's just frame drop I'm pretty certain it's your CPU not having enough power.

Ok. My CPU is probably a bottleneck. Do you know anything about my motherboard chipset driver problem? Or is it not a problem since everything seems to be working fine?

Thanks a lot!
