Because. ... I can and it runs better on AMD than Nvidia in the same release category tongue.gif Seriously though, with a 6GB card I get a 2 - 4 FPS increase without it. Although it's not necessary I'm still an enthusiast and I still want to check out these things with my own eyes. Even if I don't own an Nvidia card thumb.gif

I haven't but thank you for the advice, it was unlocked just for the FPS testing but I'll try 30fps lock.

Edit: A question I did want to Off topic ask: Would my CPU be bottlenecking my GPU, I'm not exactly sure if I should OC it at this point in time. ( i7 3770k @ 3.5Ghz )

This patch bumped me from 85-95+ FPS to 95-105+ FPS seemingly, I'm guessing because of HairWorks optimizations.

My settings:

1080p 144Hz G-Sync
Ultra settings; everything max but sharpening set to medium.
Unlimited FPS; V-Sync Off, true fullscreen

One thing I noticed upon installing this patch is my textures quality slider was reset to low. They were definitely set to max before the patch. Am I the only one? Something to lookout for since the texture slider is below the fold.

Also if it's not obvious, maximized fullscreen is less FPS than true fullscreen, not by much for me by about 5-10 FPS.

The max sharpening filter seems to put the game to its sharpen levels seen in the 2013 trailer. I prefer it at medium though, sharp is just a bit too harsh on the eyes IMO. SweetFX/ReShade does the same, and then some to get the colors back to gritty. I personally think the colors are fine, and the contrast and black levels of my BenQ monitor are excellent and really show in this game at night or during storms.

Same here, Installing the patch added the "Low, med, high" slider .. mine was set to low. I set it to high before posting my FPS here.

Now I want to go home and download the patch and play it. rolleyes.gif I just picked it up yesterday and started playing, love it so far and got lost in the game til 2:30am lol. The controls make me want to hurt myself, but I guess after while I will get used to them.

Everything has been rock solid for me since launch. Except maybe a few graphical glitches; Some NPC and foliage randomly popping in.

Will see if the patch makes any difference for me.

Edit: Wasn't done typing yet.
