What is everyone's average FPS on Arma III on ultra settings? Appears to be, yet again, that my GTX 770 is struggling while running this game. Seems like I get an average of about 25 FPS with everything maxed out. Keeping distances of everything all normal.

This is what I find in Windows Action Center, any clues?

Yeah the game runs like garbage, just like ARMA II. It's why I stopped playing them.

Well you can see my system in my sig, and it runs at <30fps pretty often.

I know Dayz does this but doesn't it render literally everything that is in your field of view (like the whole map)?

I would assume it is just the down fall of the game itself.

yes and its not really taking advantage of new hardware either, i have 4-5 cores sitting doing nothing while the game piles everything onto one or 2

Welcome to Arma general.

The game is running fine. Your performance is typical.

All you can do is turn post processing effects off, put terrain detail on low and turn the AA down. The game becomes CPU bound during missions because of all the Ai, objects, buildings, etc. and the game is still single-threaded. Object, some AA settings, and terrain detail are the only real frame rate killers but you need object detail to be turned all the way up or you won't see shit at distance.

Altis isn't really all that optimized either.

Would my processor at this point be bottlenecking my system? It's an i5 2500k. I wouldn't think it really bottleneck it, but I guess in this day and age it would, huh?

Nothing's wrong with your PC.... The game is running as it should.

The biggest frame rate killers in all Arma games are object detail, terrain detail and draw distance. Also turn shadow quality to at least medium, the lower settings use stencil shadows which are done by the CPU. Arma 3 is CPU bottlenecked and your video card is more than powerful enough to handle shadow maps.

Did you read anything that was mentioned? It was said that, i7 4770k w/ 780 TI runs it at 30fps. So how do you expect your i5 2500 w/ 770 to run it at more then 25fps.

I actually had a problem with my PCIe port. I put it in the second PCIe slot for crossfire or sli rather than the primary PCIe slot. Once I moved it to the primary slot, my FPS increased. I'm getting 30 FPS more often than not now. So it looks like my 2500k is doing a good job.
