New HD models are VERY cool looking!

Nice, will have to check out. Hope WG didn't put it too far out of reach for some as I already hit 90%+ usage on my gpu, guess a 290X might not be enough anymore frown.gif

What settings do you run? I run maximum at 2560x1080 and don't get to 90% GPU usage with my 290 unless its a heavy forest map... sure do see core 0 on my CPU cranked to 99% though. Haswell at 4.4ghz is too slow for tonks.

I'm trying to get into the test server, and it's making me wait in a queue of 60,000 people. Is that normal? (This is my first time on a test server.)
It's been an hour, and I'm down to about 3500th place.

Indeed. But before i will note the performance was REDICULOUSLY variable, Some maps id get 70-120fps, Others id have dips into the 30s, Which is really asinine with a GTX770... let alone a R9 290. I also had VERY annoying stutter caused by... No clue.. Just suddenly the entire thing would stutter out for a few seconds then resume. Really annoying (and i dont have such an issue in any other game)

So far im seeing a much more consistent 60-85fps, Or about 70-ish average, with better GPU utilization.. Thats a good thing in my book (ill take the hit to absolute speed in exchange for more fluidness, Besides it was RARE for me to hit that 120fps)

Yes, very, Try later at night/early in morning to get on quicker...

Here guys, have some screenshot goodness from the test server.. Tiger I is... -drool-




New shaders even make the non-HD tanks look great... New Panzer IV Ausf H is sweet




One oddity, they seem to have altered the Japanese paint scheme... I think this looks quite fugly now



Things not evident from screens:

-The animations on the HD models are REALLY nice, the Tiger just looks so much better now while driving and such

-The clouds and stuff seem more dynamic now

-The game runs better on my rig, Seems they fixed some of the nasty stutter problems my desktop kept having

-I see a lot of screen tearing now for some reason, I might have to click V-Sync on..

Thx for the screenies Kenji, almost off work and ready to toy around a bit.

As Far as what I'm running scorpion nothing like you are but with my 290X unless I lock it at a steady clock my core even at 5GHz can't push enough and my 290X just constantly drops clock state and gives horrible stutter.

But after locking my clock rate in Tanks tears my GPU up hard core really, the good thing is i don't get drops in match below 60 or 70 fps even in sniper view etc.

It's the engine they use, so horribly inefficient.

Really? I know mine runs around 600-700mhz a lot in that game, are you using RadeonPro to force constant clocks? I might give it a try. The CPU reliance is so bad, my frame rate literally doubles with the 4670k over the 7850k and the same GPU (interesting, since Hawell cores are just about twice as fast as Kaveri cores with the overclock I use).
post #1427 of 6618
CPU and GPU variance is nuts... I'll have to try with tripple buffering and see if that helps...this is with vsync off and graphics all maxxed...
Test server 9.0



So it seems they moved the core usage to the 4th core? seems odd...

Graphics do seem alot better. Alot higher texture detail for all tonks. thumb.gif

H'es running a 2500k so id imagine he should be doing better than i am, you can hit some great clocks on a 2500k compared to my 2600k @ 4.5

This is my 290X clocks Idle, all I did to get my 290X to idle here is click Extend Official Overclocking Limits in Afterburner, don't use Catalyst at all.




And while in TONKS!!!! This is my usage now under 9.0 test and nice steady clocks for the most part. Looks same as 8.11 to be honest and getting about same fps.


I experimented and until I could get my idle clocks to stay up if I played tanks my gpu clocks would drop to the 300mhz low powerstate clocks etc just fluctuating liek crazy. Very annoying and laggy feeling.

On a side note, yeah it's not much but I enjoy at least some better graphics going on, it changed a good bit of the shading for camo etc you get on tanks, not sure if like that part haha.

As a side note, my reference model 290's did that a lot in WoT but my Tri-X does not do it. Thats part of the reason I sold them, they kept going to idle all the time even in other games and it drove me nuts. The Sapphire seems to not exhibit that behavior though.
