Hello, I have a gtx 670 ftw and I am getting some drops in my framerate on Gulf Of Oman. It will dip down to the low 40's in heavy battles and tanks blowing up in my face. It is very annoying because it makes my gameplay look very laggy. Do I have a bottleneck in my system?

Specs:

Intel Core i5 3350p @ 3.7 ghz OC

EVGA GTX 670 FTW 2gb

8 GB RAM

Rosewill HIVE Series 650W

500GB HDD

Windows 7 64 Bit.


Please help!

No, it is just that the back to karkand maps are VERY CPU intensive. You can help the frame rate by turning down the mesh quality setting a few notches.

Mesh quality determines how far you can spot people, so turning it down puts less load on the CPU. I would recommend medium, as low gives you a rather significant tactical disadvantage.

Yea it worked but there is still drops into the low 50's... maybe it is just the b2k maps??

It is. You may just want to play with the graphics settings a little. If you don't care about quality all that much, then i would recommend running everything at low except for mesh quality and shadows. If it's really bugging you, you could throw in 2x AA, just to take away some jaggies.
