Thx, is there a nhancer that works with 260.63 driver? And I think we need a patch for the game.
dunno, that's why I tested in nvcpl first.
I think I need better driver first. 66% gpu usage is minimal.
edit: it was gpu fans @ 66%, gpu usage 55-63%
Forcefully disabled SLI for this game and I still see gpu usage of 23% for card 2...probably means heavy PhysX caclulations. Anyhow, far better fps than with SLI; over 40fps, looks awesome and feels good. CPU usage (4.2GHz quad) according to taskman: ~50%, 25%, 30%, 60%
Will now test setting Physx to CPU and enable SLI once more, maybe jackpot and 60fps+ ? Expecting cpu usage to be higher than before EDIT /// after testing: Same as above for gpu and cpu usage :3eyes:
So, for best experience today, I disable SLI for this game in nvcpl, giving 99% gpu usage on 1st card for 35-50fps, 100% satisfied game feel.
This game does not use physx.
I disabled SLI completely and gpu usage shows only 80%, giving a barely OK 30fps.
With SLI enabled globally, but SLI disabled for the specific game, I get 99% gpu usage, and 35-50fps.
50% fps missing there. there is only one benefit: cards can't go hot !
some dx9 dx11 comparisons here
Well, I was disappointed when I first enabled Direct X 11 because the performance seemed to take a slight hit but that seems to be the case for the first track in the season. When I went to Melbourne I was pleasantly surprised to see my framerates go back up to previous levels I had on Spa and Monaco, so I'm definitely happy with the performance I'm getting on the majority of tracks. Strange thing about that is the Bahrain Shakir track seems to be fairly sparse compared to Monaco or even Spa, so you would think that since there is much less details (trees, buildings, crowds etc) that the framerate would reflect that, whereas on Monaco for instance there is much more track detail and I get much better framerates.
I am getting off topic here nut I am very pleased with my week old build that cost me just £400 for a Phenom II x4 955 BE, a mid range Asus M4A87TD/USB3 SATA 6Gb, relatively good 2GB Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 1600 and a nice MSI GTX 460 OC Demon Overclocker (Tweakers essential award goes to the MSI GTX 460 Cyclone 768MB, Gigabyte GTX 460768MB OC) - Tweakers essential award goes to the MSI GTX 460 Cyclone 768MB, Gigabyte GTX 460768MB OC and I got a Samsung F3 SpinPoint which I am very happy with. So all that for £400 and that included a cheap but very good case which i couldn't be happier with and i since i only have 1 x 2GB RAM in Single Channel in Win 7 I am sure when I get another identical RAM module I'm sure I will get another 5 to 7% increase in performance
So with all that taken in to account, I think I have got myself a mid-high end gaming PC that will play most new games on High settings or at worst Medium - High settings with good Anti Aliasing. Oh I also installed GTA IV and I couldn't be happier with that either, on my Athlon 64 x2 3800 @ 2.8Ghz (40% OC) with 2GB of RAM and an 8800GTS 640MB which would play GTA IV at the lowest settings possible and I barely got 25FPS, now with my new system I'm getting 50 - 60FPS with most settings on High and high resolution.
There is a difference between DX9 and DX11.
currently i only have this game installed on my second computer which has dual 8800GTS 640mb's and a Q6600 @ 3.4
i run the game at 2048x1152 8xMSAA 16xAF max ingame settings, and i get 50-60 fps with 75-95% GPU usage on both card's. i'm using 260.63 beta ... runs smooth.
try Ultra settings.
Forget F1 game. Play trackmania instead. TMNF
lol, Trackmania is my favorite game !!!
why you guys spoiling out here, get back to your damn game !
F1 2010 runs 85fps avg with own tweaks(see games F1 2010 section), no way I could make one card run even half...just wait for drivers.
does it make much of a difference visualy? cause as it is it doesn't look all that great, not bad but not great ...
anyone here who's got the game to run @ near 100% GPU load with the 460? mine is still running at 40-60% during races. running with more AA and ultra settings doesn't change anything with the GPU load. consequently, on the menus the GPU is working perfectly at close to 100% (97-99% iirc).
is this an issue with the driver or the game's coding?
The game does run a bit better with the 258.96 driver.
Hello, this is my first post so I apologize if I screw something up.
I have been back and forth between codemasters, nvidia, and palit on this issue.
I have a Palit Geforce GTX 460 Sonic Platinum (1GB) card and in Dirt 2 and F1 2010 i get extremely low GPU usage. Around 30-50% and about 28-32fps for F1 2010. Dirt 2 is slightly better but not great.
I figured my 460 should be able to pump up to near 95 or 100% usage with settings maxed and set a pretty good avg FPS. But as many have said the game is buggy I suppose.
I am running the 260.63 beta drivers which i finally got to work after a bios update on from Palit for the 460. However, I had the same exact frame rate and gpu usage issues with the 258.96 drivers. The most annoying thing is when I adjust settings from High to Low or whichever way I get no change in usage or frame rate.
I don't think its a CPU bottleneck as my CPU (intel q9550 quad core-Stock 2.83ghz) is not working that hard according to hardware monitor and in Heaven benchmark i can get 100% usage on the GPU no problem and adjusting settings does affect frame rate.
It all seems to point toward a driver/game optimization issue. I seem to be able to run other titles pretty well without this issue, for example Final Fantasy XIV (even with its serious server lag bugs) gets the GPU up to 95% usage or so in open areas.
Any suggestions? Tried the replay file fix thing, trying clean installs, etc.
We need more NEW GF104 optimized drivers, the gtx460 is still new so we need more mature drivers. And a patch from codemasters for f1.
don't worry mate, others are also having low GPU usage with the game so it's prolly a codemasters issue.
Got it thanks so much for the help. I hope those new 260.63 officials launch soon but I can't imagine they will be far off from the Beta's so I'm not expecting too much Yeah hopefully codemasters gets a patch out F1 seems like it would be awesome!
