Arma 3 on FX-8350 and R9 280X

So, I deciding to buy ArmA 3 seeing as BI, say I should be able to run it as good or better than I do with ArmA 2.
So I put everything on very high as I usually do with ArmA 2 and I only get around 22 FPS in multiplayer.
Lowering the setting to a combination of standard/high and shadows disabled still only gives me around a +3 FPS boost.
I've done the CFG file changes with the Max_Frames_Ahead but this didn't do anything.
Is this on my end or is that BI Lied and Arma 3 just runs terribly?

  1. well did u try playing a different server? i play on high with 50+ fps on hd 7870 and fx 6300 sometimes mine is like that for certain servers, did u play single player?
  2. Arms 3 runs horrible on hardware its extremely CPU Dependant even 4930k's overclocked to 4.5ghz seems to peak at 45 fps with a better gpu than yours.if you really wanna get good fps in that game youre going to need to invest in some serious hardware

    that is perfect for the game, i play on a crappier gpu and cpu and i play on high with 4gb of ram, it should work

    Single player on Ultra everything ran at about 60+ all the time from the missions I have done.
    I switched servers and I went up to 30FPS on high with anti aliasing full.
    Then again I tried a wasteland server and only got 10 FPS
