    AMD had to rebuild the software & work on the drivers which take time to do & they miss Fallout 4 deadline for the drivers. also the game runs fine 75fps to 50's but what is funny is that big area the game runs fine but small area the game framerate drops a lot. I stop playing until AMD release the driver.

    On my current setup I get 60fps unless an area I just entered is loading. Even with like, 30 ghouls chasing me the FPS stayed between 50 and 60.

    Have you guys been monitoring drawcalls via Enboost? It's been very telling for these significant dips in cities and such.

    So, no new news on next "wonder" driver with performance boost for F4? :p

    Found a temp fix for low framerates on AMD Hardware, The Witcher lll AMD Tessellation mode override x16 trick work great, well on my end. I see less framerate drops now & much smoother gameplay. I don't know if this works or it's in my mind but I do see frames are better now.

    Witcher lll was the same, I think Nvidia base games use too much Tessellation that it hurt AMD Hardware, so lucky Tessellation mode override helps.

    Or you can do this:
    http://forums.guru3d.com/showpost.php?p=5190171&postcount=832

    You can wait for Amd drivers to the end of this month.Fallout 4 has already a profile in Catalyst.
    Amd Catalyst Tess Optimized setting is at x64.

    Its not Amd fault that this Gameworks game have problems.Even on Gtx 980TI the game run like sh** in towns,under 40fps.

    I did two test, the Fallout 4 Perf ini with AMD Tess Optimized aka auto & stock Fallout 4 Perf with fullscreen 1 with AMD Tess Overwrite to x16. AMD Tess Overwrite to x16 does the job better since the driver is forcing the game to run at x16 while Fallout 4 Perf ini keep overwriting each time you start the game. putting it on read only crash the game. thanks for the tip anyways.

    What about forced 16x and reduced fTessFactorMaxDistanceScale?

    No problems here with Catalyst Tess x16 or x8,including fTessFactor=15.Read only ini's.
    Usually I put Tess on 'Use application settings'.

    Damn it Bethesda,I "play" this game only with settings.More than with my character. :thumbdown

    Not sure why people make the ini files read-only, it doesn't do anything.

    Sometimes you wanna see options and forget that Launcher options rewrite settings. :D
    It does,game launcher dont rewrite settings when ini's are read-only.

    The launcher saves changes to Fallout4Prefs.ini without read-only.

    Which settings in the launcher are supposed to change things in Fallout4.ini?

    Only Bethsda knows.
    But both are good to be read-only.

    There's no need to set any of the ini's to read-only :)

    My motherboard says that it can take up to 16GB of RAM at 1333MHz. I know that the Sandy memory controller goes up to 2133 (although a lot of people will tell you that that's a roll of the dice). I actually trust more my current Sapphire motherboard and its old school bios (with UEFI support for boot), than my MSI that said it could support up to 32GB at 3000MHz. I haven't really tried to OC the memory with the Sapphire, because I literally have no idea where to start from. Any guide would be really useful.

    In a review for mine, I always see people pushing them at at least 1866. On the other hand, I have 4x4. Do you have any links to any good guides to start experimenting with this?

    Sorry i'm a complete noob about memory OC.

    I will solve a problem i have with windows now and then i will try to improve my RAM speed later.

    Take a look at Overclock.net there is a HUGE amount of good info about OC there.

    I'll start from here:

    Complete Overclocking Guide: Sandy Bridge & Ivy Bridge | *ASRock Edition*

    You can use this one or check the Intel OC guides index here:

    Talking about the 4 fade distances, object fade seems to have the most impact. I have the rest maxed out and object fade about half way.
