Im looking to maximize my FPS.My max res in eyefinity is 5760x1080 something strange like that.
I noticed while running homefront, it runs GREAT, except when there are soo many things going on the fps drop..granted I guess some drop is to be expected..
would I see a FPS increase getting another 6990?
After reading that CF support is much improved in the 6k series, does it make sense?
I plan to run my reserved titles at gamestop all at max res and those that support eyefinity, at max eyefinity res and details..with , preferably no drop in FPS..will a second card minimze my drops? or is it overkill?
thanks for any input..
my system is a 980x, 12 gig ddr3 system..originally alienware..but upgraded since. 1200 w power supply
The thing that has me thinking here is when you say it slows when there is a lot going on, that to me would be a CPU issue as much as a GPU issue.
The CPU still determines where stuff is on the screen so lots of it gives it more to do.
I have no experience with Eyefinity so im talking here from the perspective that this is what i would expect to happen on a single screen. Is it possible to drop the resolution in eyefinity ? If not then the detail settings at least, to see if the drop off decreases ? If the drop of did decrease when you lessened the graphics load then this would indicate the second GPU would indeed help. If not then its a good indication that it wont make much difference .
