My build only gets 20-30 FPS on Crysis 2 Ultra dx11 high res at 1920x1080, which is almost not playable!!!
Is this normal or not? I have seen other people get 40-50 FPS with similar build. Are there anything I can do to improve the performance without spending more money? Please help me out!
My build is: GTX 570HD
CORSAIR DDR3 8GB RAM 1333
RUN ALL COMPONENTS AT STOCK SPEED
You do have a couple things to consider. What is your CPU clocked at? And since they aren't using a set benchmark that we all can use to compare against their results, you will not get the same performance unless you were able to replicate their test.
There could be some problems, but in many cases, you cannot average 43 FPS, in some places you might.
My SLI'd 560 ti's can run it around 60fps, but struggle with the high res pack due to only having 1gb on board memory. I sometimes get the black screen with music playing bug. I can run dx11 ultra no problem but once I enable the high res pack it's like pew pew lasers on my cards. One situation where I kind of wish I had more ram
Nice build! I have tried to overclock my rig. during the last weekend, but I am only able to overclock the i7-860 from 2.8GHZ to 3.5GHZ due to the limitation of my OCing skill, DDR3 1333 ram and the entry lvl crappy motherboard. Despite that, I have seem marginal performance gain of +(5 to 10 fps) from doing that. Forget to mention, I change the Physx to CPU which is also very effective to gain more FPS. I also changed overclocked the graphics card. Fun stuff!
Bystander is a pro! You know everything! I don't know how to do benchmarks in Crysis 2 or other games. I have Fraps and EVGA Precision, but both programs does not tell me what is the max, min and avg. FPS. I do have Unigine Heaven and 3d Marks 11 tho. After the OCing, I tested many games, including crysis1, crysis 2, Dirt 2, BFBC2, Ureal 3, etc. I think the feel of +5 to 10 fps comes from the average gain of playing all of those games.
