[Crysis 3] Gaming with 7850/7870/7950/7970

Hi guys, how smooth is ur gaming with the mention graphics card with no overclocking done.

AMD driver: 13.1 and 13.2 seems to have no difference.

Single Campaign Mode:
For my case, i using i5-3450 + MSI 7870
In full HD 1920x1080 + medium settings
But once i set it to high, it seems to be slightly laggy. Jerky here and there. During sprinting, it will suddenly move very fast as if the FPS suddenly jumped.

Any of the bros here would mind sharing their gaming experience with their in-game settings?

taken from poor_poor thread

true?

Even 7950 need everything to be at medium to run really smoothly. If set to max will also lag at times. And this is with a highly oc 7950

This game brings most current gen graphic cards to their knees man. Even with a HD7870, I am not so sure if you can get an absolutely smooth frame rate throughout the game at the settings you chose.

It did bought my Sapphire 7970 to its knees.. The AMD program even crashed.. This game utilizes LOTS of memory. 970Mhz 1455 Memory Mhz and i could only run it smooth (>60fps) with certain drops to >50 on MEDIUM.
Disabled AA and only 1TX

Yeah i agree. AA kills at least 10 frames for very little difference!

Never enable AA until everything else is at max. AA kills frame rates the most while offering almost nothing in visual improvement. AA takes up too much gfx ram too.

That's true. Usually, I rather keep resolution high than to enable AA. Things like shadow quality can also be lowered to keep the game in playable frame rates.

Not exactly. Myself, at the very least 2xMSAA or some sort of MLAA/FXAA before trying to max out the rest. To each his own really. Also 2xMSAA or MLAA/FXAA doesn't kill performance that much.

Anti-aliasing really reduces frame rate for that rendering, still looks nice even without it. However, the 16x Anisotropic filtering doesn't affect the frame rate (to me, at all) that much.
