5770 Crysis

Hello,
I have an i5 650 overclocked at 3.84 ghz. I have 8 gigs of ddr3 RAM at 1600 mhz. I also have an xfx HD 5770 overclocked just a bit (900mhz and about 1325 mhz DDR5). Anyways, I have a 27 inch monitor and I play crysis but can only achieve "high" settings whilst in 1920x1080 res. Why does the fps slow down to 24 or so when I try to play at very high? Is it the face that my gfx card is a 5770 that is rated at 128 bit? Would a 6970 be a better option to run newer games at higher speeds because it is 256 bit and 2 gigs of ddr5? or is there something Im doing wrong? I currently play at my max resolution (crysis that is) at the high settings and almost never drop below 30-35 fps. Thanks!

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    HD 5770 is a great card but you have to lower the settings to run Crysis at a resolution like 1080p to achieve a goof FSP(So it's not only the 128bit that's holding it back).
    Getting a 6970 will give you double the performance(if not more) of your current card
  2. Try turning off anti-aliasing, shadows, and settings textures to only high. When textures are set to ultra-high, it streams them directly from your hard drive as it needs them, so if your hard drive is slow, the game will slow down when it needs new textures. When textures are set to high, it will load all the textures at the start so you will have a slightly longer loading time to deal with but smoother game play.
  3. You may also want to try some custom cfgs which actually raise both the graphics quality and your FPS too such as CCC config

  4. Your graphics card is holding you back. Your CPU and RAM are fine. I used to run Crysis with everything set to "high" except for shader quality, wihch would be set to very high. This way you still get the cool bump-mapping effect on some of the textures. Anti-aliasing can be set to 0, anisotrophic filtering can be set to 8x instead of 16x. Run the directX 9 version, and make sure you run the 32bit version, even if your OS is Vista/7 64bit. The driectX9/32 bit version is the fastest running, and doesn't look much different. And finally make sure you have the game patched to the most recent patch. Some of the patches gave performance increases.
  5. Hey thanks guys! The tweaker for Warhead is really nice! I think I'll get a 6970 in the future, maybe when the price drops a bit.
  6. You bought a HD 5770, that's what you did wrong. Going with the 6970 would be your next mistake. Get a 2gb HD 6950 and unlock the shaders.

    Doesn't this show that the HD 5770 is a terrible card instead considering the GTX 460 is $15 more?
  7. Yeah, I did my research. The 6950 with the unlocked BIOS seems to be the way to go. Especially with the BIOS safety switch, you can't really go wrong.
  8. I believe AMD is currently fixing the "issue" with the HD 6950. So future HD 6950s cannot be unlocked.
