experience big frame drops on every map now.
sometimes it 150 dropping to 80.
Games been running smooth for me so far. I get 60 to 100FPS on a 64 player server with ultra preset @1440p so I can't complain.
Whats with the CPU utilization though, its like 80 to 100% at times? Is it a driver issue of some sort?
I know BF1 has steep CPU requirements, but the kicker is I loaded up Dragon age Inquisition the other day as well. Strangely I get the same 80 to 100% CPU use when before it was more like 50 to 60%.
Before I had a 7990 vs the 1070 during the Dragon age play thru. So is it possible my GPU pushing my CPU to the max? and would Hyper threading help? I've got a chance to swap to a 4790k for dirt cheap.
I see other people are still experiencing 100% CPU usage at times on 64-player Conquest servers. Seems like a widespread issue even with newer I5 & I7 CPUs. I just now started playing BF1 the past couple days and this is the only game to bring my CPU usage so high. I'm hoping there will be a patch to fix this, anyone know if this is in the works? Setting the frame rate limiter to 60 fps definitely reduces the CPU load, but this obviously isn't a good option for people running high refresh rates.
I don't think CPU utilization is a bug. BF1 is one of the most CPU demanding game.
Utilization is maxed cause its actually processing all frames it can. And I think even if GPU is not able to process 60 frames, CPU still pushing it limits to process as much as possible.
V-Sync (better with triple buffering) should limit max fps to your panel refresh rate, saving CPU from rendering limitless frames.
+ rtss for fps cap to refresh rate and nvidia pre-render to 2.
I absolutely agree, I have no other game that pumps my CPU like BF1 does. You could easily use it as a OC stability benchmark.
Does anyone suffer from game crashes as they ALT-TAB back into the game? It happens EACH time I do it, so I'm forced to stay in game and its all over if I need to check my desktop.
No problems here, do you have Origin enabled in-game? If so, try turning it off.
Yep its off, just can't figure it out.
I see you are using SLI so I suspect that because people running Nvidia cards in SLI mode are having all kinds of weird problems.
Yeah SLI/CFX aren't officially supported.
The "funny" thing is from what I've read that SLI worked flawlessly with the release version and even beta.
Since Fall patch SLI started having issues for many people and the latter patch did little to nothing to improve things AFAIK.
It was only a matter until this would happen. I mean, nvidia themselves dropped SLI support with 3-4 cards to "focus" on 2-way. Well, I guess that if big fish like DICE can't be arsed to support it properly anymore, then the future of multi-gpu is indeed grim.
And yes, frostbyte engine is perfectly capable of running multi-gpu, I had 2 cards back in the BFBC2 days, same for BF3, same for BF4, same for DA:I and any other frostbyte powered game I played. They just don't WANT to support it anymore...
Performance is great for me. They only issue I've run into so far is this Alt-Tab thing.
bf1 showing 3000mb vram usage, is that normal?
running 1080p high settings.
That's very normal, BF games use alot of ram.
Its using 3500mb vram for me, 2560x1080, ultra settings with reshade.
TXAA for AA.
A lot? CoD uses a lot, for whatever reason. I always found Frostbite to be very reasonable in that regard.
My bad, i thought he was talking about RAM.
Hey all how's the game going after the new update?
Seems OK to me, only had a quick play. Got a ribbon for 5 kills with an auto loading rifle
