If you search these forums, ppl were saying their 1080's were getting ~120 fps... at 1440p on "mostly ultra" settings.
Even more ludicrous: claims of 4k with, "just a few tweaked settings."
So how is it that I've never hit 144 and even struggle to maintain 70-100 at 1080p, on LOW/MEDIUM ?Build
Ryzen 5 1600 oc'd to 3.75ghz
16 GB of Corsair RAM oc'd to 2660mhz
EVGA GTX-1080, stock.
Samsung 840 EVO 500 GB
Monitor: Asus VG248 144hz
Windows, and mobo/chipset AMD drivers are all up to date.
In game I have FFR off, dx11 selected, gpu restriction off and frame limit capped to 144 (although I riva turner and user config to 90 for stable frametimes).
CPU does get just a smidge bottle-necky but for the most part everything sits near 40-50% utilization.
Any and all input is greatly valued. Thank you kind sirs I look forward to my humbling.
I've found the solution. Game runs fackin nutter-butter smooth now and i get 150-200 fps with superb frametimes. Best part is the game doesn't look like total poop.
I get maybe ONE stutter a game but it's a hard 2 second stutter (usually when i'm multitasking in the background), instead of the annoying "oh god explosions, bullets, noises- here comes the stutters" stutters. The ones you can predict are the worst and i'm so glad they're gone- it honestly feels like I have a new graphics card now.
1. Out of game: update windows to the latest os build (very important). Make sure Disable Full Game Optimizations is checked. Make sure Game Bar is turned off. And make sure bf5 is set to high performance in window 10's "Graphic Settings." Fack tweaking geforce control panel- that's all psychological. Set that to whatever you want but I just use "Let the 3d application decide" in the "adjust settings with preview" section.
2. Now were in-game: set DX12 to ON (trust me on this, and bloody well make sure W10 is updated before doing this).
3. FFR set to ON
and the most crucial part
4. Set graphics to the preset, "AUTO: Min Latency."
I know what you're thinking: "who runs presets?" But lemme tell you: this preset is magical. First off, its deceptive on what it does because although it says everything is set to LOW, it's most definitely not. Game looks like a hybrid of settings which is nice because now you get to have your cake and eat it too. Certain textures will look bad and certain concrete tunnels won't appear until you're close (think: twisted steel) but the tradeoff for non existent input lag + high frame times is the nuts.
DONE, THAT'S IT. YOU'RE WELCOME.Just remember this: your game will be utter TRASH when you first turn on dx12. I've learned that this is the game writing to the gpu cache for the first time, and is a necessary pain. So expect a rough go when you load maps FOR THE FIRST TIME- trust the process. After this you'll be thanking me and asking where to send the checks.
