It's a HUGE tessellation load. They tessellate to ~100k hairs if the camera is close to the main characters head (and it always is, because the camera control and positioning sucks)
Maxwell is actually significantly better at Tessellation than Kepler, so it absolutely makes sense for it to be a bigger hit on Kepler GPU's. That's not a driver problem or a lack of optimization, it's a reality of hardware. Even so, turning it on with my reduced settings on single 980 took me from ~120 to ~90fps from the player character hair alone.
It sucks even more for Radeon users, because the 290 is actually awful at tessellation. The 285 is faster even though it's a much smaller and lower power GPU because the gcn1.2 improvements have not reached the high end cards yet, AMD seems pretty reluctant to refresh hawaiiEdited by Cyro999 - 5/20/15 at 2:52pm
