GTX 570 performance Bad Company 2

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I think I have a problem.
I think my CPU may be bottlenecking my GTX 570, especially in Bad Company 2.
On maps like Oasis I get 30 fps

1920x1080
DX11
AF = 16x
AA = 8xAA
HBAO off
Vsync off
Everything High

Now, I do play at high quality, but I did tests and changing low to medium to high would net me very few fps gains, only maybe around 3 or so fps.
Changing settings BARELY affects performance

Vietnam it runs a lot better around 50+ fps average
but still, I seen lower gpu's with quad cores getting 100 + fps on some maps (video to prove it).

my specs
GTX 570
Phenom II X2 550 BE (three cores @ 3.1ghz)
4 gigs DDR2
Windows 7 64 bit

I am planning to upgrade to a i5-2500k setup, but I have little money, and with the recent news of the bad sockets, i'm glad I waited.
I'm thinking of just getting a Phenom II X4 920 to hold me over till I get more money.

Here is the reference video I used

This guy get's around 60-100 fps on Panama Canal

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (Socket AM3) 3,4 GHz
Graphic: ATI Radeon HD 5850
RAM: 2 x G.Skill DIMM 2 GB DDR3-1333 (4GB total)
Motherboard: MSI 770-C45 (Socket AM3)
Power Supply: be quiet! Straight Power 600W
Operating System : Windows XP Home, SP3
Resolution: 1280x1024, 75 Hz

I try to copy those exact game settings (even used DX 9 setting)

I can barely get 50 fps at times.
Surely my CPU is bottlenecking?
I've tried so many fixes and nothing.

What are your Bad Company 2 performances like?

I use better settings than those (HBAO on, and 16x quality AA or something like that) and I rarely drop below 70. BC2 is very CPU dependent.

Yes of coarse , my 6950 flys through this game maxed out 1920x 16xAA at roughly 80fps ..

Your problem is driver related i think , orr ur cpu cant feed ur gfx card fast enough ..

Another question
Do you think my AM2+ motherboard is bottlenecking my GTX 570 too?
I'm afraid if I get a Phenom II 920 it will just bottleneck

Its the DDR2 memory bro..
I upgraded from a Phenom II x4 B60 (3.92 ghz )and 4 gig DDR 2 1024 mhz Cas 5 timings. ..
Went from dipping into the 50-40 range, Now I'm rarely if ever below 80 fps.

I believe there is some serious cpu bottlenecking going on here.. BC2 is a VERY cpu dependent game. The more cores the better.. the higher the clocks even better.

lol you upgraded to a core i7 that's why your framerate went up so much. nothing to do with memory.
