I'm having a problem with BF3 and my AMD 5970. To be as precise as possible....Performance is terrible, and I cannot for the life of me figure out why. I run Crysis, Diablo III, Eve online, Witcher, Skyrim, Max Payne without any issues. I'm able to play most of these games at high settings at 5760x1200 resolution....However with BF3, I am able to pull 15 - 40 fps max at all times with graphics set to low, medium and high. I don't get it. Deferred is off, and no amount of lowering X setting gets any appreciable jump in frame rates. The strange thing is, when in camera mode in a vehicle or in a kill cam FPS hops up to around 100. I have tried drivers 12.3, 12.4, 12.6 and 12.7 with the necessary cap files.
Here are my system specs:
920 @ 3.8ghz
6gb corsair ram
evga sli le mobo
Radeon 5970 @ stock clocks
Windows 7 64 bit on Corsair 140gb Force 3 gt SSD
Storage Drive: 700gb Western Digi Black @ 7200 RPM
I'm playing the game in 1920x1200 res. The game won't start in eyefinity.
I see...Any recommendations as to what videocard to go to? I'm leaning towards the 680...I play at 5760 x 1200 and would like to continue to do so. Not sure how nvidia compares to ati in eyefinity...I just know that I am sick of ATI and their shitty drivers.
Hey my friend i was in your shoes 2 weeks ago. i was playing bf3 with my 5970 and keeped on having driver issues i got sick of it. so i sold it on ebay for like 320bucks and got a gtx 590 brand new. THE DRIVERS OMG THE DRIVERS so good. and games honestly looks 5x times better. the 5970 in terms of raw power is good but its a old card like 3 years old. with the 5970 i would get lots of lag on ultra on bf3. no problems with my 590. so i reccmoned you get a 680 is just a bit slower than 590 so youill see a bit improvement like me
Yes me friend you are. the 5970 is old and drivers are *** (i apologise for my language) and omg its loud haha. get the 680 and youill be tearing up games like me
on bf3 on ultra everything maxed i dont drop under 80fps when things get super intesne and average around 95-120fps. everything maxed so yea 1080p
oh and the guy saying people playing the game on 60fps on youtube. trust me 60fps feels like 25fps with the 5970 lol
Hmm, I was considering that too, GTX 590 is still EXCELLENT gaming card.
Yea it surprised me how good it was, i only got it though since i got it for $350 dollars brand new. if you can get a 590 brand new cheaper than 670 why the hell not haha.
but dont pay like 700dollars for retail for one just because its a bit faster than a 680. if your a on a budget go for a 670 then
