2Gb card or 1gb?

Recommended Posts

There must be something set differently in BF3. 4200 is a pretty respectable score in 3DMark11...I only get ~9500 or so and I have a far more powerful machine.

 

I'm guessing it might have set "medium" settings but I have a hunch that it set something higher than it did with your 4870.

 

Sorry about the quality, I didn't know how to screen-shot in-game and screen-print keyboard wouldn't work so I had to take a camera picture.:

As you can see almost all settings are auto set to Medium except for texture quality. The game is laggy and jumpy on all settings though. So there's definitely a problem somewhere, considering my old 4870 everything was set to High.

Ultra textures perhaps?

 

Just tested and turned it to low. No difference. Terrible lag, unplayable. Also turned down Anisotropic and V Sync off.

 

Surely my card and over-clocked CPU should be more than capable of Ultra settings? :unsure: That's why I bought it.

Send the card back.

 

Not sure if this is a serious post or you are an experienced gamer who feels the card is genuinely screwed.

At this point I'd say the card might be busted too. Are you running tessellation now? That wouldn't have run on your 4870 and there's no way a dual core and a 7850 will run BF3 on ultra smoothly.

 

Someone more familiar with BF3 should be able to tell you how to disable it temporarily...

Yeah tessellation is off. I wonder if my memory is bottle necking things or something.

You should be seeing better performance at the same settings in BF3 regardless of the rest of your rig. I'm still thinking a setting (or settings) isn't the same as before.

Did you try putting everything to the maximum settings they can go and see if there is any difference in the fps compared to the lower settings, if so...CPU!!!

He played it just fine with the same CPU and a 4870 though...

Really? At what settings, because I am doubting that a dual core 3ghz cpu can handle this game in multiplayer.

 

Pec0, select the preset "medium" and don't adjust any other in game settings. Turn off vsync and can you run 1920x1080 resolution on your monitor? Run a small multiplayer map, no bigger than 32 players, and run MSI Afterburner in the background. See if you are getting 99% gpu usage, what temps you are hitting, and what your actual fps are. BF3 is very cpu demanding, and the more players the more demanding.

I don't know why this is loading as a small image :dunno: :

I run these same settings with the SLI setup, I have a card out right now and didn't change any settings. Averaging fps like this in the upper 50s.

 

 

I think this is just a cpu issue. Looking at the 3dmark score, your graphics score is pretty good, physics/cpu...not so much. The best score I could get with one GTX 560 is P4313 This one is two 560s in SLI and my cpu score drags down the overall score: http://3dmark.com/3dm11/3150079
