BC2 MP Fraps runs inside! Starring 460, 470, and 6870!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 


Anybody else disappointed? I've done over 5 runs per card and those are the best case scenarios for all of them. Without a doubt, the two Nvidia cards feel smoother. Also, worth mentioning's that I see more line breakup on phone lines or ladders and a good chunk more flickering on the 6870.

I'll no doubt be taking this 6870 back on 25th for a GTX 560 Ti. But if I had to pick between these cards, it'd be the 460. I never graphed it, but the 470 @ 850Mhz was a beast. I could easily enable HBAO and get higher FPS than the 460. That said, it just tears through my PSU and spits out fireballs. By contrast, 6870's an air conditioner, lol.

Feel free to share your runs!

Well considering you're doing it on a MP server which gives different conditions everytime its practically useless to compare. You're better or playing on a empty server and blowing stuff up yourself so you can actually compare the results properly.

I did 5 runs last night on 6870 and every one was between 72 and 74 avg FPS. I played like a wild man every time.

It's a lot less dependent on walking in a straight line than you'd think.

But it isn't consistent which is the key to a scientific approach to data collection and analysis.

I've wanted to properly benchmark BFBC2 for a long time but there is no good approach to it.

Did you have Physx enabled on the Nvidia cards by any chance? =P

You should re-run the tests with dedicated Physx for each of the cards.

The HD 6870 works with Physx hack drivers.

Does BFBC2 support Physx?

Are we really going for science here? you can still get a AVG and rough AVG of what the FPS will be across all 3 cards. Plus I rather see MP benchies to be 100% honest than SP, because who gives a crap about SP after you beat it and ya.. maybe go back and replay for fun..

Empty server? That wont do no good, when do I play on a empty server? never.

I thank you OP. Even though I already play BC2, i like your appoarch you did with the test. you did what I'd call "a real gameplay test". It's not a set track, its not a empty server, and its not SP.

Haters will hate. Not everything has to be done in the same manner, than life would be boring....

On a side note, you can solve the flickering issue by disabling the bloom effect.

C:\\Users\\Your username\\Documents\\BFBC2\\Settings.ini
And set bloom to :false

You're right, and I do appreciate the OP's effort. I'm more blown because I can't figure out a good way to consistently test MP. I've run benchies on various games but I love BFBC2 more than any of them and its impossible to consistently test the MP component.

Why did you decide to turn HBAO off? I really like the effect it gives so I leave it on. I'm running 1920x1080 4xmsaa 16AF with HBAO on with a gtx570 and my fps is right around 60 with a few dips into the 50's

I guess HBAO is very demanding.
