Try override d3d for synchro..
Glad I never upgraded my CPU after all. Good old i7 965 doing great and at 3.75!
Hi guys, i decided to buy new 7970 GHz OC (1100/6000) from Gigabyte to replace my old gtx275 and also i'll buy zalman cnps10x extreme for my Ci5 750 @3.6 (GA P55 UD-3R). Please will be my fortron blackpower 650W enough? And i have 4GB RAM, do u think i should buy another 4 or its enough for playing in fullHD. Thank u for advices
GTX 580 is a dying breed my quad 580's will still hold up until till 2013 as long as the game supports sli if not then too bad lol. im gonna upgrade to quad 680's soon i just need 800 more dollars to go
Nvidia released new driver day of FC3 launch
Along with Ati, Nvidia released a new driver today, launch day of FC3. It's WHQL too..
10.70s are still Betas, even though some people thought they was WHQL'ed
Running FC3 at ultra settings without AA is perfectly fine with the 580gtx.
Same with AC3, my 580 runs like a dream.
Yeah, stutters bad even though getting 60 fps.
I could buy 2 680 right now, the performance increase isnt worth it to me.
check out this gk110 tesla card. 2496 shaders. hopefully we will see this as the 780 gk110 in 2013.
are the benchmarks based on ultra settings with SSAO and MSAAx2?
so for example, are the benchmarks based on a specified preset in-game benchmark, or using a custom "run around the map and shooting some pirates in a specific area for a couple minutes" type of a benchmark? Would like to know, thanks.
On yeah, on my system i get about 65-80 fps range usually, with 4x MSAA, SSAO, and ultra. seems about right? However, the cards get pretty hot as its a demanding game. Hits to 79C on both cards while fans running around 75-80%
Same, even though it's smooth giving around 60 fps there is some bad microstutter which is really annoying...
The game has also crashed several times. For this reason I might try disabling SLI & see if it makes any difference.
Piledriver is very pathetic in this game. Why??
And @hilbert can u please add fx6300 ?
Howcome the review included an overclocked i7 3770K but the 8350 was only tested at default clocks? That's not fair.
Another 500mhz might have been enough to improve Vishera's fps....
Also could you please include CPU load in the scaling tests...
Why use a 2560x1600 single monitor for high resolution
I would venture 99.9 percent of the readers here don't have this kind of monitor and do not game at this resolution. I have 3 1920x1080 screens for a total 5760x1080 resolution. This is your most likely combination from a serious gamer or techie person to own as it is easier to add a monitor to your existing than to get rid of 1 or 2 monitors and buy a single expensive huge ass monitor.
But back to the game benchmarking for people with 3 1920x1080 screens. This game runs at about 15-20FPS on a single GTX590 at 5760x1080 at Very High and Ultra and you'll get killed easily because of lag but you'll look good doing it. 4800x900 is very playable and you will do well. Oddly I have a game glitch even with newest beta drivers with the FOV stays widescreen even if you drop your resolution to 1920x1080 giving you a weird compressed FOV on single screen. So far no amount of changing FOV , starting and restarting game or changing resolutions will fix this.
...I would prefer a huge expensive monitor with excessive resolution than having black lines disturbing my ultimate gaming experience...it's annoying
I used to think that way until I actually bought and use 3 24" Alienware 120hz monitors and the 3D vision surround glasses. The center monitor is what your eyes focus on, the two side monitors are your peripheral vision, your mind fills in the rest. It is what makes it immersive, you won't notice the bars. It doesn't change that fact most people do not have the large single expensive monitors even if they would "rather" have it.
For CPU scaling tests, an AMD cpu-gpu combo would be nice, and not just an Nvidia card.
cool eview but it would be goo if more CPUs are included on the benchmarks, specially one of each serie (i3 3220, i5 3570k) not only i7s
