Gtx 670 low fps!!

So while i was playing crysis 2 maxed out with Dx11 and HD resolution packs i noticed that my frame rate was never consistent .

It would show 60, 50,55,40,30, etc all within a few seconds of each other.

To get it consistent at 60fps I would have to change the settings from ultra to very high, or everything on ultra and Dx9.

Is this a driver related issue?

could be. Could be also another process or a program in the background doing something while your playing.

You could always use drive sweeper and completely clean out the current nvidia drivers and reinstall them.

I run gamebooster so It stops what ever irrelevant processes are running I doubt thats the case

Do you have this issue with other games? Is there a new update for crysis that may solve this issue or you can try enable or disabling v-sync in game.

Well this only happens to Crysis 2 and Batman arkham city, then again Batman was badly optimized :??:

Maybe a driver problem, wait until the new one comes out

My gut feeling is that your processor is starting to show it's age a bit. But more RAM might help out since the recommended RAM is 4GB for both. Have you tried running the game without gamebooster and see how it runs?

LOL the thing is my CPU is fairly new, I got it in April :heink: 

And In Crysis 2 I saw a benchmark that showed that even the Best intel CPU made no difference in performance in crysis 2

with the X4 missing, I got mixed up, sorry. I would try installing the beta drivers and see how that goes. It is a new video card and there will be some game issues with the drivers until they come out new ones that will fix them.

AH i see, I couldn't find any other drivers besides 301.34 :pfff: 

Those are the only ones available ATM

4GB of ram is kinda limiting too for intensive games, 8GB is more preferable especially when maxing out games like Crysis 2 DX11 with HD packs.

Overclocking your cpu will help too.

Although you are correct, Crysis 2 uses the Vram on the GPU, when it runs out it attacks the onboard ram

Iv'e been monitoring with Precision X and It hasn't really used more than 2 gbs of my on board ram.

Well it is hard to tell. I have a gtx 680 and when I run my benchmarks I get always above 65fps , but when I actually play the game frame rates are all over the place, sometimes it reaches 75, then 50 and even 40 fps. My advise : Turn off vsync , same for high res textures, instead download the Maldo's patch (runs the same but at least the 50 fps rate is justified)

I know, but the only difference while gaming would be that I can run background apps while gaming, otherwise I would just close them

Does this use less memory or something??

Vsync synchronizes your FPS with your monitor's refresh rate and for the high res textures, the patch, I assume, optimizes the high res textures but I'm not sure.

Check system ram usage whilst playing Crysis 2 DX11 HD packs , alt cntrl del and see how much its using in the task manager.

What kind of hard drive are you using? If you have the high res texture pack and dx11 both enabled you really need to be using ssd or a WD velociraptor to get solid 60fps. You might be bottlenecking at the hard drive.

The Maldo's patch runs as good as the normal dx11 + high res patch, but it actually looks way way better, that's why I said at least it justifies the 50 fps rate. It is weird tho because metro 2033 runs above 60, even reaches 100 fps maxxed out.

also forgot to mention that you also should have a 64bit version of windows installed for both dx11 and high res enabled at the same time. Crysis 2 is just picky like that. 32bit OS won't cut it

It made a minor improvement which increased my GPU usage in the beginning of the game, however during the game the frame rates are still very inconsistent with DX 11.

I never heard of HDD bottlenecking . A high end hard drive would minimize your load times, but as soon as the level is loaded it's up to the rest of the hardware.

i was reading before on guru3d about having to enable adaptive Vsync in the Nvivdia control panel; it is disabled by default. it think it was in the 301.24 thread . . .

301.24 and 34 are pretty much the same drivers only 301.34 supports only gtx 670 and 690.

its not performing like others becoz of his cpu.So i call it limiting factor.

and by that criteria anything but the fastest would be limiting which is incorrect no matter what you call it.

he is not being limited by his cpu. OP; try adaptive vsync and see how that fares.
also i concur with the 8gb of ram upgrade others have stated

The gtx 590 is a dual GPU, and I have the 980 not 970, those benchmarks were kinda old with outdated drivers

The 980 with a good oc wont bottleneck a single card; sli yes on the higher end but only if you are on a single monitor 1080p or lower. Basically the bigger load your gpu has with extremely high resolutions or a taxing game like crysis 2 you wont se any bottleneck .
This issue might be driver related.

would 4.2 Ghz be a good OC?

I can achieve 3.9 Ghz with no voltage boost. With 1.4750 V I can achieve 4.2 Ghz.

Would there be a significant difference from 3.9 to 4.2?

Not groundbreaking but it will definitely open it up for a faster card.

thank god Im not the only one having low frame rates in crysis 2 with gtx 670...even my gtx 580 was about 20% faster than this card. I srsly hope its driver issue that would go away.
