Crysis 3 low fps

Hi all, basicly im getting really poor fps on crysis 3. I can play all my other games on ultra with really decent fps, games like bioshock infinite, skyrim, bf3, witcher 2(minus ubersampling) etc. Im not expecting 60 fps but under 20 fps outdoors i think is unacceptable considering i anly gain about 5 fps by dropping everything to low.

My specs are:
A6 3620 cpu
6gb ddr3 1600mhz
Gigabyte Hd7850 1gb
Windows 8

I dont think its anything to do with the cpu not bieng the best cos I checked system requirement lab and it said I was above the recomended requirements as did the website game debate. When I bring down the console it shows 3 rendering devices one the hd 7850 and the other two Windows basic render device. I play all my games at 1080p and even dropping the resolution and settings to the bare minmum doesnt really help at all.

  1. You are running into a CPU limitation. That A6 simply doesn't have the testicular fortitude to run Crysis 3 very well. Crysis 3 is the most CPU intensive game to date.

    Even a faster CPU than yours with a GTX680 is only able to pull low 30's regardless of graphics settings.

  2. Agreed. A single module/dualcore processor is not strong enough

    Your RAM may also be a problem . If it is 3 x2 gig sticks then taking one out so the rest runs in dualk channel may also increse game performance .

    But the only solution is a faster processor in your current build
    or a
    faster processor /mb
  3. Ok I think both of you are probably correct, guessing the game was a waste of money just glad i picked it up when it was only £20 lol. Im not upgrading cos its the only game I cant run (well apart from gta 4 but thats a different story). Oh and by the way it's a quad core proccessor

    Yes it is a quadcore . My mistake . Its clocked very low at 2.2 Ghz .

    You could try overclocking .
  5. Yeah I use AMD cpu overdrive and got it as high as 4ghz stable but it didnt make a difference. I used cpu overdrive because there are no options in the bios to do it incase your wondering. And the ram is one 4gb and another 2gb
  6. For anyone else having low fps with similar specs to mine, make sure you have no downloads going on in the background especially if you have avast as this uses up 25-30 percent of the cpu as avast is constantly scanning. Turns out i can play with medium textures and effects with 30-60 fps so the proccessors not that bad.
