Hello members of Tom's Hardware, coming at you with another quick question in regards to Skyrim and my FPS.
Currently I am running my game on a 1024x768 Resolution (Highest available for my screen) On High settings, the game is smooth as butter, (Constant 60 FPS), Everything looks very Fluid and realtime. However when I switch the settings to Ultra, Fraps tells me that the game is running at 45-60 Fps and the game is a whole lot choppier as a whole. On high settings I would run through Whiterun with a constant 60 FPS and it would look perfect, but on Ultra I would receive between 30-60 Fps and the game is choppy as hell, no fluidity whatsoever. Is the choppy gameplay normal, between 30 and 60 fps? Thanks Again. My specs are as follows...
Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHZ (Stock, No Overclock Whatsoever)
AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 (OEM Reference Card)
8 GB RAM @ 1333MHZ
Seagate Barracuda SATA 1TB HDD @7200RPM
I have the same video card, and i can run it on Ultra with +60 fps, you just have to tweak the files, every pc is unique.
Adjust these files
C:\Program Files (x86)\The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini
PS: Start with tweaking the shadows a little bit lower, shadows have a huge impact on you performance
