I recently bought Far Cry 3 and Hitman Absolution.
When playing Hitman on highest settings, with MSAA 8x, Anisotropix 16x etc.
ingame FPS drops to 22-25 average. The resolution i am running is 1920 x 1200. I did not test FPS in Far Cry 3, but it still seems kind of laggy at ultra settings. My graphics card is a inno3D GeForce GTX 680 2gb.
I got the newest nvidia driver installed (310.70).
Does anyone have an idea of what could be wrong? Shouldnt this graphics card be able to run these games at ultra settings?.
CPU and RAM:
Intel 2700K Sandy bridge 3.5Ghz
Kingston HyperX 8GB Running 1600Mhz
I don't have those particular games, so I don't know what is normal during game play with them. But the GTX 680 2GB should have no problem keeping frame rates well above what the eye perceives as fluid motion (~30 fps min). Do these issues appear in both single player or just multi-player?
Is this a new system, or one that has been in use for awhile? If the latter, you may want to try cleaning your system by un-installing the gfx driver and running Driver Sweeper from Safe Mode. Have it remove any old AMD, ATI, and Nvidia graphic driver remnants it finds. Re-boot and install the latest driver for your card and O/S. http://www.guru3d.com/content_page/guru3d_driver_sweepe...
Then perhaps run CCleaner to rid your system of resource wasting crap and registry errors that could be slowing things down. Do the Clean and Registry portions both. http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
Hi thanks for the answer!
I build my system this summer so its pretty new. I use CCleaner on regular basis, so the registry database should be in order. There has only been 1 older driver installed on the system, and i have only performed clean installs. These are my system specs:
Note that they didn't feel anything beyond MSAA x2 was playable, and the benchmarks don't use more than AF x8 either. I have a feeling you are just using too high of settings. Seriously, too many people crank of AA levels way too high. Anything beyond x4 has serious diminishing returns.
