I can't run crysis warhead maxed smoothly yet? WHAT?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
Well figured I would give crysis warhead a go with my sig rig because its cheap and I haven't played it yet... Put everything on enthusiast settings, maxed AA and got ready to play... laggy and unplayable. WHAT? So you still can't max crysis or warhead with 2 5850's and a six core processor? This is ridiculous! I figured I would drop the settings down a bit so I shut AA off. Get around 40 frames average and drops down to about 15 when being shot at. Clearly warhead still can't be maxed with my rig. Is this a normal? I am seeing benchmarks for warhead and 5850 CF looking a lot better than this....

I have exactly the same problem with my SLI 470 setup. It is just a poorly coded game I guess.

Is your processor overclocked? Crysis can only use 2 cores, so it could be a cpu bottleneck.

Is crossfire enabled? Try setting it to Standard or Advanced and see what happens.

The framerates you're getting is about the same as me if I disable Catalyst AI with the same settings. Also, OC those cards!!

Crossfire/ SLI driver issues?

Having the most up to date drivers is not always necessary and might actually hinder performance in some cases.

I play Crysis on my sig rig with a few important settings maxed out, the rest high/medium, no AA (haven't tried yet) and I get average 40-60, it rarely goes below 40 and never goes below 29. And no I'm not only going by the first level lol. Should mention I have OC'ed my card despite what my sig rig says.

I only play at 1680x1050 though so maybe that's why...

Crossfire is indeed enabled and I can see in afterburner that both gpu's are being used.

Same issue with a 4.4Ghz Q9550 and a 470 Sli(875/1750/900) and its still very unplayable at 1920x1080, Enthusiast and any kind of AA.

What settings do you lower to play the game?

Anandtech's bench comparison shows that you should be seeing much better performance. The minimum framerate they saw in their testing was well over what you're experiencing. There's definitely an abnormality.

The reason I put the comparison for the GTX 480, is because on Crysis (not Warhead), I see about 40-45 fps average in single-player: 1080p, all Very High, no AA (per Geforce.com).
