  • Frame Rate on Minumum, Near Min Rig

    I was reviewing some benchmarks today trying to get some solid facts on whether I am going to need a quick boost or if waiting several months to upgrade machine will be reasonable?

    I do not really care about running the game on high or ultra. As long as I can have good viewing distance I'll be happy.

    From what I found they were all measured on High or Ultra and apparently 20-30 Frames for a duel core/single 8800gt..... Do not believe it.

    How is yall's frame rate on the low end scale with settings on low?

    Mine is about half way between rec. and min.:

    Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 @2.8ghz
    HD3870 x2 Crossfire
    4g DDr3 Ram

    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50GHz
    6144MB RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 220

    Vid card lets me down, big time. I get 20-30FPS on low settings at 1280x720

    I'm planning on upgrading my GPU over the next month or so.

      Haven't been around here forever. Just got back in with BF3.

      The frame rates that they get is with Quad CPUs. I have an C2D E6600 paired with a 5770, and I get an average of 20ish. I was planning on upgrading early next year, so now I'm in a dillemma if I should do a small (Q6600), partial (AII 640) upgrade or just stick it out until my planned time.

      PaintScratcher: your card is actually slower than the 9600GT, otherwise you should be fine. People are running on Ultra settings with no AA with a 560 Ti.

      EDIT: Just wanted to add: on auto-detection the settings were automatically set to all 'High' settings, including AA, and that's with a single 5770. High settings on a 8800GT with 20-30 FPS might not be too far off.

        Lol, I know right! Funnily enough, the 560 is exactly what I am planning on upgrading to.

        To be honest, I am surprised the 220 has done as well as it has, considering it was low end several years ago its kept me going through BC2 and Arma 2. However, now I think its time for it to go to the great motherboard in the sky. :D

          Is frame rate capped at 30 for PC? I heard this somewhere.

            I'm using a laptop:

            Intel i7-720QM
            4Gb RAM
            ATI 5730 w. 1Gb VRAM

            Running at auto settings with textures on high and everything else on medium. I get 30-45FPS in hardcore fighting.

              I'm suprised that people actually bought the 220 for gaming (I'm sure you had a reason). What processor are you upgrading to? I'm thinking of upgrading to an FX-8100, I think it would be better than Sandy Bridge long-term (4+ years.)

              I don't think so, unless his monitor is 30Hz. Here's a person with 3 GTX 580s: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1646219

                What resolution are you running at?

                  Yea, I used to have a 8800gtx but when that blew I 'borrowed' my parents 220 as a stop gap. The stop gap turned into a year long loan lol.

                  Processor depends massively on what money I have left, looking at an i5 of some description but I might not bother and stick with the Q8300.

                      There is no frame rate cap and is based on the combination of the Hz of your monitor and what fps you can actually pull.

                      i7 2600k @ 5.1Ghz
                      580 @ 900Mhz
                      8GB DDR3 1600Mhz Ram

                      At 1920x1080 I sit nice and cozy above 60FPS.

                        I have the exact same setup except for my video card which is a 260m (1gb), however on all lows and dropping the resolution from 1680x1050 to 1280x1024 I only get 20-30 FPS in hard fighting.

                          My laptop is what I am using since launch and will be stuck with until I get home:

                          i5 @2.8
                          6GB Ram
                          5870 with 1GB ram
                          Running at 1080 resolution
                          On auto all high and medium

                          Desktop is:

                          i7 920 @2.66
                          6gb ram
                          Gtx 570
                          W7 64
                          1680 x 1050

                          Should get her to ultra!

                            I can play on ultra with 45-50 hard fighting
                            I play at medium just for silky smooth which is 80+ fps hard fighting

                              e8400 oc @ 3.05ghz with a single 285gtx i get good frames in the 40s and 50s on 120hz monitor with occassional dips into 30s and even 20s on 64 player moments with insane action, vehicles, jets, smoke, particles, effects, all going at once etc

                              i have aa off now but 2x post aa costs a few frames

                              honestly i might set my settings even lower because its a lot easier to kill at 60 fps than 30, and frames and ms make a difference
