just wait until you get to town
also when you lower shadow draw distance performance is much less bottlenecked with CPU singlethread performance
i7 920 4.0 ghz
GTX 780 sc ACX
16 GB RAM
cap 60 fps from Riva Tuner
and use Fallout4 Configuration MOD
disable GODRAY and DOF (i added it through Reshade)
and lower Shadow distance/quality
There is indeed some flickering in the perk tree. I still think playing at for 4K with some flickering is better than playing with one card at 1440P
As a CrossFire user i just learned to deal with minor flickering. Of course the flickering Sammarbella has is pretty extrem and would make the game unplayable.
In AFR Friendly my crossfire (7970/50 x2) scales pretty well ! but my character face turns black and i have a lot of flickering :cry:.
So i will stick with the Crysis 3 profile ...
You are playing as a woman then?
EDIT: i just took of my gas mask and i also have a black face as a male. I will never take that gas mask off again.
Well, i'm still going to use it, but AFR friendly mode is far from perfect
The Crysis 3 profile has some nasty framedrops. I'm not really a fan of that
EDIT: I have no idea why i just used 2 posts to answer you
looking fabulous here..
rder: -just hit ultra and let it roll..
The new driver (15.11.1) is a bit more optimised in 'Default' mode, and allows TAA anti-aliasing without the game glitching hard. I was previously using AFR. Scaling is also way better, to the point where I have to underclock to keep my top card cool. TAA is demanding though, so I've reduced res from 2160p to 1440p, but with TAA and the Enhanced Wasteland mod from Nexus the game is now looking and feeling awesome! Only slightly worse clarity without 2160p res. With the mod, night is night (need to use your torch!), and the colours are heaps better, I feel. I reduced some of the gamma in the game too with SweetFX because daylight is TOO bright sometimes. So now, loving this game!
Guys, I reckon having TAA enabled makes the game look seriously impressive, just my opinion though, and I'd definitely recommend having it on.
With my 2 X R9 290s I have TAA enabled, 16 AF, 2560x1440 res, everything set to High, except for Ultra textures (textures need all the help they can get!), and Medium view distance details (doesn't make much difference to image I feel). Enhanced Mod uses Ambient Light, DOF, Lumasharpen etc etc so uses some resources, thus I've locked my refresh to 40, which is smooth enough for me. Hope this info is useful for anyone, cheers!
What profile are you using now?
Yeah the "Crysis 3 profile" in heavly populated areas like the "boston freedom trail", have a really crappy perfomance (fps drops to 40FPSuke2 ....
So you are not using CrossFire right now.
Just you wait till you get to first minor town (Lexington). You will be batf@ked surprised I am also was having around 50 at the beginning...
Atm playin at 2720x1530@75Hz with locked 35 fps. In cities it drops to 30 occasionally. Apart from that its fine. After I tweaked shadows distances and such...
Typical CFX AMD solution.
Er, it is, actually. Default is the 'default' crossfire profile, 'Disabled' would mean no crossfire. Both GPUs pushing 100% usage. Yeah AMD haven't loaded a Fallout 4 profile yet, but the latest driver's default profile is better optimised.
AFIK default 15.1.1 CFX profile disables CFX, so perfect 0% for GPU 2.
Check that you don't have unified GPU monitoring enabled in AB, you'll not be the first.
CrossFire is disabled completely if you install the 15.11.1 driver.
You know, having CrossFire could really be awesome in one game and can totally **** up your experience in the other. Seriously, i spend more time "fixing" fallout 4 than actually playing it
I hope that DX 12 could bring an end to all those problems, but somehow i got a feeling that it won't be that easy.
Oh crap, my bad...in the Beta Release Notes it didn't say that...just said they had improved optimisation.
If that's the case, I apologise for my presumption. And it would also mean that once they finally do sort out CF I should be able to run it @ 2160p, making it look even better.
Now I see what the frustration is about...with AFR on I can go 2160p but can't use TAA which means the driver is still botched, and with 'Default' on I can use TAA but have to revert to 1440p because it's disabling CF.
Yeah, I had the unified monitoring on in AB. D'oh!
Cheers man, I'll report back.
