Imagine R9 OC...

#3 Posted by PredatorRules (7981 posts) -

*290 OC

#5 Posted by JigglyWiggly_ (23551 posts) -

that's pretty bad performance

lots of frame rate dropping

should be 144+ at all times

#6 Edited by kraken2109 (13052 posts) -

Dat off-screen recording

He would need a capture card on another computer otherwise though.

@JigglyWiggly_: Why?

Because he's showing his framerate. Top right of the screen, a screen recorder would hurt those fps.

Is that the fan of the GPU? I knew it was noisy, but THAT noisy...

I know right. 100+ FPS on ultra in one of the most intensive games out today? Such horrible performance. He should throw that card in the trash immediately.

MSI afterburner has little to no impact.

Be warned Jiggly likes really high fps :P

Fair enough..

I might've just given noobie advice to a connoisseur then :(

That being said, Afterburner really does'nt have much of an impact (as long as your framerate is constantly above your record setting, that seems to bork my videos).

Nope it seems to be his H100i maxed out.

I have a gtx590.. thinking about this or the 290. Not 100% what the x gets you?

Either way i'll wait till next year and the 3rd party coolers

EDIT - Actually.. it probably is the card: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpD_r53qxJc

still waiting for the 3rd party coolers

it does hurt fps quite a bit and would destroy the point of the video

the only recorder that i've used that barely hurts fps is shadowplay

obs w/ quicksync, msi afterburner, dxtory all hurt performance significantly more.

Also, i don't think MSI afterburner would work because BF4 is 64bit

Wow you really have to start the game through a web page? That's .... different.

that's how it was in BF3. It's called battlelog, people made quite a big deal about it

God dam thats loud!

Yes high framerate is important and it's great.. but the dips. The dips kill it. But you can thank the video drivers for that. Perhaps, when they improve the drivers.. it will be smoother one day.

Ya shadowplay is pretty good, I noticed a less than 10fps drop on BF4 when using it.
