[TT] NV recommends 980 Ti for 1440p in Rise of the Tomb Raider - Page 17

post #161 of 281
Far Cry games suffer from some severe stuttering issues. I could feel Far Cry 2 stuttering when playing through it not so long ago despite the fact that the framerate was a consistent 60. The Dunia engine is a real stutter simulator, no doubt about that.

As someone that never used dual gpu that sounds horrible. It basically defeats the whole point of the extra power.

At the time I had three 7970s, damn near 100% of the time, two where shutdown. It is the reason I went to a 780 Ti to begin with, if I couldn't use more than one card, might as well get one badass (at the time) card.

This, but I only had two 7970s.

I ended up ditching them for a single gtx 970 for 5760x1080 and it played so much better despite having less overall power. I was able to actually enjoy gaming again.

I won't even bother with trying GTX 970 SLI for fear of my past experience. My next GPU will be a 1080ti or whatever they call it.

I am thinking of going Single GPU too unless DX12 changes things. I always got the Second GPU because there was nothing faster as far as Single GPU goes. It just so hard to expect to MAX games @ 4K with single GPU right now.

You and me both!

I have had a second 780 Ti in my shopping cart many times, but just a bunch of "Nope!" screaming in the back of my skull.

That is why I'v been lowering certian things such as 4xMSAA after applying the Ultra preset in games. Once you find out those couple settings that tank fps in a game to lower, you can get 60fps and everything else Ultra settings.

Hopefully the next gen GPUs can bring out a true 4K capable single card. If they deliver, it will be a day 1 buy for sure.

Isn't any kind of AA pretty much pointless at 4K?

Exactly. I never noticed any stutter with my setup at all (at least not any microstutter that wasn't the same kind of obvious stutter that I've experienced with every dual GPU setup I've ever used) and always felt it was an overblown "issue" to begin with (and a great way for Ryan Shrout to get publicity and take shots at AMD which are his two favorite things to do). I'm glad that AMD fixed it for those who are sensitive to frame pacing issues but I really believe that is a major minority of gamers out there...

I disabled Crossfire because it felt better with it off before the issue of microstutter was ever raised. I didn't have any idea what was happening I simply didn't like the "feel" with crossfire enabled. Maybe I happen to be sensitive, I love VRR even at 100 fps, which some say they cannot tell apart from Vsync disabled, so I might be.

Runt frames did mean that people who thought they were getting high FPS were actually experiencing much lower frame rates, this may not of bothered them but that would mean a lot lower FPS wouldn't have bothered them either.

No, the pixel shimmer issues still happen, it is less apparent the higher the DPI so AA is less important but it still improves the apparent quality. It is totally worth turning it off to be able to run at decent frame rates but I would turn it on if I could, even at 4K. smile.gif

I was playing with a 28" 4K monitor when I formed this opinion. (PB278Q)
