    just wondering if nvidia is working on optimizations for this game, because it currently runs like crap on a 680

    i know it's alpha and all but it's using a relatively ancient engine

    Is it? I thought they made a new engine just for this game.

    Even Operation Flashpoint - Cold War Crisis ran crap at the time. I did really really enjoy it tho.

    It's the engines ****ty use of cpu power and NVIDIA or AMD can do nothing about it.

    Yes and no. The basis for the current engine is OF:CWC but the current engine has been heavily overhauled and retrofited. That's not to say that ARMA 3 Is using a brand-new build-from-scratch engine that we'd all like to see, but it's still a lot better than the original engine.

    Anyways, ARMA 3 isn't even released yet (never mind patched or DLC'd). Hells, it's still in alpha with no firm release date. At this point asking Nvidia if it plans to support the game is like asking an oven if it plans to support the cake mix that's still on a shelf in the the pantry; In both cases the answer is "yes, but not until you finish making it!"

    No it is not possible and even if it was you wouldn't get anymore fps then your currently getting as the game is heavily cpu bottle necked

    Weird Ihave no pproblem here with sli 660ti, all ultra setting, 1080p, rendering distance of 2.8km and shadow at max for that distance. Run way better than arma 2

    Even if you paired your 680 with a $1500 CPU the game would still run like crap. It has horrible CPU optimization.

    I don't understand who buys these games. They don't look very good and they don't run very good.
