CRYSIS 3 very very low fps?

my sys specs
3gb ram xms2
p5kpl vm
hd 7770 oc
c2d e6550 oc @2.69 ghz

my res is 1280x1024
why crysis 3 runs so slow ... when ever i go to open field .. i expect hd 7770 at such low res .would play crysis 3 smoothly ... i even changed settings to low .. but fps remains at 16-17.. when i go inside or small congested place .then fps remians at avg of 37....is my cpu is weak ... or gpu???

  1. Crysis 3 requires a good CPU as well as a good graphics card. Your C2D is the problem here.
  2. 1. Update your driver. A GTX 650 ran Minecraft at 30 fps 2 days after it's release. Because of bad drivers.

    2. Set your settings to 'high or medium'.
    Yep, high or medium. It's because the game should start to rely more on the GPU (in your case, a 7770 which runs Crysis 3 on medium - high).

    Keep the anti-aliasing low though.

    if i upgrade to core 2 extreme qx9650 ... then how well then my hd 7770 will run this game??? will i get 35+ fps at 1280x1024

    Yep, high or medium. Some games run better with higher settings on builds with decent GPUs
    and low end CPUs.

    Keep the anti-aliasing low though.


    even i set all my settings to lowest possibe .... but it hardly increase my fps 0.5 to 1 .... all settings low anialising disabled

    Your 7770 is certainly capable of that. The QX9650 is the question. It should be just about enough. But I think you'd get more bang for the buck with a platform upgrade, replacing motherboard, RAM and CPU in one go.

    but a lot of my frndz told me that qx 9650 is a monster and equal to a specific model which i dont know i7 proessor..

  9. If you're upgrading, wait for the Haswell i3 4220 if you can.

    Yes it was a monster during 2009-2010 days, now its still a good enough processor especially after overclocking. If you don't have cash for a full system upgrade including HD7770, then you may upgrade the CPU to that QX9650 and run the game at medium settings with the latest AMD Catalyst 13.5 Beta driver that has performance tweaks for Crysis 3. You will get playable FPS of 30-35 range with these.

    Okay, have you tried running on medium - high settings. Just try it. MIGHT WORK.

    When you move resolution higher you move work to GPU more. But You need good GPU than. Lets say gtx 660 (100$/€ better) can barley run Crysis 3 on High. Now how could 50% worse card do it better...

    Then explain this, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0SQ9R-yHhs
    A 7770 running Crysis 3 at 1680x1050 HIGH settings. I know he has an i5 but we're talking about the card's performance.

    A higher resolution doesn't reduce the amount of work the CPU has to do per frame, it just increases the amount of work the GPU has to do per frame, making it more likely that the GPU will be the bottleneck. It won't improve performance.

    However, higher quality settings may shift some of the work from the CPU to the GPU. When the CPU is the bottleneck, that can actually improve performance.

    plz . sir ... hd 7770 is certainly nt bad at all for such low resolution ..and yes i noticed wid my frnd quad core q9550 dat my card is running it very well at high settings.. and also saw at his monitior (1080p) dat hd 7770 also running cysis at abt avg 35 fps medium high
