[TT] NV recommends 980 Ti for 1440p in Rise of the Tomb Raider - Page 18

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)

Good point. I'm not really bothered by ~30% fps either...

I meant FC3,which isn't smooth even after all this time. On the contrary, FC4 after game patches and also after I moved to nvidia is surprisingly good, I don't think there's any stutter at all. On 290 it did feel a bit choppy at times, but still the main problem was CPU overhead,even my 4.9GHz 2500k with 2133MHz RAM couldn't handle it @1080p, it'd drop below 55fps in every outpost or village.

I think if this is the case again, all you need is a 980 (unless you're falling for this maxed=all gameworks enabled scheme).

I get 30-40 fps on AC:S at 1440P maxed out... how'd you manage 75-90fps? :S!

The answer is in my comment, I don't use TXAA,PCSS and HBAO+ Ultra. I run high shadows,FXAA and HBAO+. Of course the visual quality is downgraded and it's plain to see, but I'm not gonna use gameworks at the cost of running 50 fps less. That's not worth it, my settings still make the game look very good and frankly if I get another 980Ti for SLI I'll leave my settings as they are to increase the fps by another 50, not gonna use the insane power two 980 SLI'd just for 60 fps.

Nah, not for me. Far Cry 4 is the most stuttery game I have ever played, Far Cry 2 and 3 dont even come close to the amount of stuttering that I experience in the fourth installment.

He has a Nvidia card now and FC4 unlike FC3 was Nvidia Game. Either way FC3 > FC4.

I had stutter on CrossFire 290X and on a single one as well. None on 980 SLI or 980 Ti SLI.

Edit: Apparently I fail-quoted. Meant to quote Cybertox's post on FC4 stutter. Was actually the main reason I sold my two 290X cards and went Nvidia, so I could play FC4 smoothly. And I didn't have any of the Nvidia options turned on either...

FC3 definitely on my personal top FPS of all time list, along with Max Payne 1, RTCW and FEAR (2006). Well actually Max Payne is TPP, but hell if it don't deserve a mention in here.

Going to throw my 2 cents in here as I'm late to the game.

980ti is by far the best card for 1440p. It runs everything super smooth with no issues. Not to mention achieving a great OC is very common.

Obviously the TX is a better card but seeing how it's around $350 more ...... Ya.

50% more in terms of price for like what, 5% increase in performance? Just not worth it for the everyday man.
