i think i put settings on half ultra half high, and it performs quite well @1080p. probably a spike when things get messy in 4v4, but you really can't complain about that.

an absolute constant of 60fps is a bit asking for too much, something I noticed about 3D gaming is that it doesn't even if you got a monster rig, you will still have spikes from time to time, probably less frequent than your average mid-high tier rigs, but that's about it.

Hell, ,my rig was at 200 fps when I played the tutorial of witcher ONE and I thought my rig was bad ass, only to find out later that it goes down to like 30~40 fps when there are like 20 npc's around.

Don't even make sense but it just happens.

I am not going to believe you unless you can prove it. And I would really like the proof because I really would love to know that we can get a constant min of 60 fps throughout everything in a match(focus on a bit on zerg since they seem to hit fps the most with their units like broodlords attacking, ect.)


@harrislam while spikes does happen, I disagree that it doesn't make sense. Most of the time it is just too many people/units around that taxes the cpu in making sure they are all moving the way they should. It taxes it even further when it has to do that while the npcs/units do complecated tasks. Like battle, did the attack hit or miss? If so how much damage? Any buffs or debuffs that would affect damage? Does the damage reach or exceeds the current life of the unit. If so then the death animation must be played. Ect.

This causes a lot of people to only look at min fps since it usually only get that low during the extensive stuff/aka the spikes.

If the system can give you a min fps of what you want(let's say 60) in a game during its most extensive tasks then you usually don't have to worry about spikes throughout the rest of the game.

I was talking about witcher 1, game from 2007, on sig rig, at a scene where there's slightly more NPC's, but absolutely no battle or special effects were playing.

Interesting, I want to test it out, can you tell me which act? Might take me a while to get to it tho as I am slowly playing through the game for the first time.

It's at the market place of that area with like dudes dancing and vendors, stuff like that.


Good game, just me not so much into non-fully-customizable characters.


Anyway, back to SC now tongue.gif

NIIIIICEEEE!!!

I've spent the whole day playing SC2, and had a great time. Since the last patch, or since I've played more games, I'm not sure which, but the matchmaking AI seems a whole lot better now. I'm getting far more opponents at around my level, with occasional blips in either direction. I played a master leaguer today, and a guy who'd just started. Most players were sort of my level though.

Most of all, just two months into playing any RTS at all, I'm at level 1 bronze now. Delighted!! I suck, LOL.
