Dragon Age II GPU & CPU Performance Test

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Testing da2 performance in dx11, still not good on nvidia cards, they even tried a whole bunch of drivers

"For testing we tried the Forceware 266.66, 267.24, 267.31, 267.46 and even a set of leaked 270.32 drivers, none of which improved the performance of GeForce cards where it belongs. We understand both BioWare and Nvidia are working to solve this issue and we will update our benchmark scores if that happens sometime soon."

Sad, I took a break from playing due to the poor dx11 performance, hope they fix it soon.

Feel for you Nvidia guys right now. It's usually us Ati users that get screwed initially with buggy driver support. FWIW, the newest Ati beta 11.4 hotfix drivers that just released fixed all the performance issues that I had with my 2 5870's. If Ati finally fixed the perf issues, I'm sure Nvidia won't be far behind.

I'm getting a solid 60fps on Very high, 2xAA, Hi res textures, 1920x1080.

That's good to know, at least people are working on fixing it.

I downloaded the demo last night and died a little inside as I turned the graphics settings down.

Good thing they didn't test SLI GTX 580, they would have pissed themselves. The more 580s you add, the worse performance you get.



My Tri-SLI setup can't even get 38 FPS on DA2 at High Quality for 2560x1600. Nvidia/BioWare, please address SLI. Another problem is annoying micro-stuttering that only occurs on SLI. GPU utilization only 50-70%:

Yes Dragon Age 2 is running great on 11.4 but that doesn't mean they aren't buggy as all hell. My middle monitor does not seem to like 11.4 at all in Desktop mode. Plus games keep trying to launch in windowed mode bleh. Here is hoping the April official release fixes them.

I even did a fresh format/reinstall and it didn't fix anything.

Shouldn't take Nvidia too long to get things patched up, thier drivers dont take years to patch like some other company I could mention!
My Radeons performed well but I had too many little issues and bugs.

The 10.5's and 10.11's werent that bad though, they finally addressed the Crysis DX10 glitching and Mass Effect 2 crash issue.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I know all about how bad drivers have been for my Ati cards. I was just saying that if Ati managed to patch things up for the game, Nvidia has to be right there as well.
