I was a long time nvidia user, until my GTX 280 started crapping out. Got my first 5870 then, and soon after another fro crossfire. When I decided to go with triple monitors and my 5870s couldn't give me the performance I wanted, I could have went back. Instead, I got 6950s, and couldn't be happier. This is not to say that nvidia is crap, but it's all about what the user wants.

I tested Skyrim in my Secondary system (Q9650@4.125GHz) using both a XFX GTX 260 Core 216 Black Edition@702/1404/2400 and a ATI HD5770@950/4.8GHz and the game ran terrible on the ATI card. Even though I had 40 - 60FPS I got terrible stuttering/frameskipping when below 60FPS. Also when turning around in several places in the open world near Whiterun, I got stuttering. I tried both the latest retail driver for ATI and the latest preview driver.

 

On the nVidia card the game ran just fine, no issues whatsoever. The ATI 5770 should compete with a regular GTX 260 Core 192 when it comes to performance, but the game just ran terrible on it. I tried every fix and trick in the book, even running the game in a Window (With that mod that makes a Window appear as fullscreen).

 

I will stick to nVidia.

 

Edit: So even If I had somewhat good FPS using the 5770, the game felt very choppy. FPS is not all, there are many other factors more important.

I am having the same problem. Installed Skyboost R4 but I still feel like the game is choppy. 4aa with 16af. Running a 6870 @ 1360/768. possibly installed the R4 incorrectly?

 

I put both files in this directory Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim as stated by this

 

 

Quote:
Put them in "steamapps/common/Skyrim", the same directory as the "TESV.exe" file.

This is for the r4 release: Extract the "dinput8.dll" from the bin folder. If you have an Intel CPU, copy the "SkyBoost.asi" file from the "sse2" folder. If you have an AMD CPU, copy the "SkyBoost.asi" file from the "fpu" folder.

Let's drop the fanboy stuff here though ... both GPU makers have their issues with this game, no doubt about it.

Try to use fraps and see if it only get choppy when it dips below 60FPS (If Vsync enabled). I experience this on my Nvidia cards too, but no nearly as much as I did with my HD5770. When keeping 60FPS it is butter smooth.

 

60Hz LCD monitors have refresh latencies that cause screen tearing (Frameskipping) to be more visible when below or higher than refresh rate. This will vary from monitor to monitor though. I've heard 120HZ screens have tighter latencies, and that this problem is not so obvious.

 

But as I've said, on my ATI card, this was much worse VS my Nvidia cards.

 

Simply put, keeping 60FPS at all times, will give the superb gaming experience. And my GTX 570 can do that for the most. At least when Skyboost is used.

I got an infraction this weekend because I accused another guy of being a fanboy and that he was sponsored by a motherboard brand. But at least I was drunk when I did this redface.gif

 

In fact, the few times I've gotten infractions have been related to me drunk doh.gif

 

So people, don't be on the forum when drunk smil3dbd4e4c2e742.giflachen.gif
