Far cry 3 low frame rate.

Hello

I have finally built my pc about a week ago and it's brill can max all my games but one.

My specs are as followed;
-Athlon II x4 750k
-Asus GTX 650 2gb
-Corsair vengeance 2x4gb dual channel 8gb kit
-500w corsair bronze
-1TB WCD Hard drive
-Windows 7 Ultimate

Basically all my games are maxed at 60fps with antialiasing and texture filtering all on x8 like Skyrim, Fallout 3 and all my steam library but Farcry 3.
I've seen many videos on YouTube of people with the same specs getting 60fps on medium. When I loaded up the game it set me to the right resolution of 1920x1080 and but the graphics to high.
But when I started the game and exited the cage after the cutscene, fraps was showing a shocking 20fps. So I switch to medium 30fps and then low which was 30fps as well.
So what gives? 'Can you run it' says I pass the recommended specs.

Thanks

  1. Nice build man:)
    May seem stupid , but do you have vsync on?
  2. Youtube isn't always reliable for this. The game did have some performance issues, even on high end cards. Yours in this case is a mid-range card now, and that performance is what is expected. If you have MSAA enabled disable it.

    try updating the video card drivers
    install Windows updates
    turn v-sync off
    try running on 800x600 and if you get high FPS do that:- increase the resolution till you get a good resolution with good frame rate
  4. Hello thanks for all the replies

    V-sync-disabled
    Msaa- disabled
    Also all my drivers and software are up to date:
    -Windows update
    -Steam
    -Uplay (Hate the thing)
    -Nivdea drivers
    -Also i use Ccleaner to keep my registry tidy

    Also i built the pc myself, I'm 20, i was told to wait till the weekend so my Dad could help as he has the know how. But i built it while everyone was out for the day. I used my own knowledge of pc's and a little help from a youtuber call Austin Evans. Dad was so surprised i build the pc and got it to the OS install screen. Haha

    With that build and those graphical settings, I'd say that frame rate is about right. The GTX 650 is a low-end card and 1080p is the absolute best you can get out of it. At that resolution, you'll need to keep the settings at normal and disable post-processing effects to achieve a good frame rate.

    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2012/10/04/evga-geforce-gtx-650-1gb-review/1 - Ignore the fact this review is for the 2GB version; the extra 1GB VRAM doesn't make a difference in your case.

    I play Far Cry 3 on an HD 7850 (which is considerably more powerful than a GTX 650) with everything on high and AA disabled. I don't know what frame rate I'm getting, but I'd put it at around 50 fps, based on my other games.
  6. Bullshit! Not even I can Run FarCry 3 at max AA on 1080p and I got R9 280X. :no:

    Skyrim is old, Fallout 3 is very old, I would bet that half your steam library consists of either indie games or nonsense like tower defense games or tetris.

    Games don't work that way, sonny, You can have Tetris at max AA but you can't have far cry. I wish they would, but they just don't... otherwise nobody would ever need to buy new hardware anymore, everybody would still be rolling their old thunderbirds.
