  1. High Resolution GPU Usage Issue

    You are running proberbly into the powerlimit of the 1080Ti in 4K. It would help if you can log during this tests: Powerusage Temperature Voltage Core Clock Otherwise just raise PW limit to 120% in Afterburner and look if this helps. Most Pascal based GFX have a good chunck of undervolting potential via curve function in Afterbuirner. i can run my 1080 (WCed )@ 2Ghz with 1V with orginal power consumption or 1860Mhz with 0,85 V and around 140W peak power consumption . That way you card runs cooler, less noise on Aircooling and wont run into Powerlimit issues.
  2. Sound related fps problem

    Do you use any external Sound device like USB doongle in combination with Headset ??
  3. Insane RAM and GPU Usage On Launch

    Ramusage on Screen looks normal , i have seen squad using up to 14 Gb of Ram on my rigs but normaly you should be fine with 16GB. Whats your Swap file settings? Do you have Full texture loading activated ? ( i recommend to turn of on a 4GB Card ) you could use Vsync to limit your FPS if you have a Problem with high GPU usage but actually thats something good--> your CPU is strong enough to feed you GPU so you get decent frames , most squad players have a turnaround problem case :-p
  4. RAM upgrade advice sought please.

    Dual/Tripple/Quad/Hexa/Octochannel is not bound to DRAM generation, its dependent on Memorycontroller setup in the CPU and Chipset for example: Nforce 2 DDR = Dualchannel possible P35= DDR2/DDR3 = Dualchannel possible X58 DDR3 = Triplechannel possible X79 DDR3 = Quadchannel possible Z370 DDR4 = Dualchannel possible X299 DDR4 = Dualchannel with Kabylakle X , Quadchannel with Skylake X To the Topic starter , since you are on a buget get the cheapest used 2x4Gb DDR 3 1600 you can get ( 2x4GB sticks tend to be cheaper the 1x8GB stick )
  5. Unplayable fps Issue

    Your Phenom II actually has a higher IPC then Bulldozer , counting in your OC to 4 GHz --> same frequency FX 8350 runs stock naturally gives your rig a better Performance even with the older Chip. Squad is a IPC and Clock whore that con`t utilize many cores , thats why you can run it on an cheap I3 7300 2C4T, Skylake IPC ; 4 GHz better then on an Ryzen 1700 8C16T, bit inferio IPC, 3 Ghz
  6. Squad optimization

    Squad devs licensed UE4 to use with souce code access, so they have theoreticly the possibillity to change it. But keeping in mind they have limited time,founds, expirience, programmer skills compared to the big companys. -There is a reason why the choose to license an engine instead on creating one by thier own. Its not trivial to effectly multithread dynamic software with many dependencys without running in syncing bottlenecks. Even BF 1 that is comonly know to be well Multithreaded shows these some of these syntomes under certain constelations.
  7. Help! New to PC gaming

    No ( unless your Laptop can maintain at least 3,8Ghz turbo permanently ) because squads depends heavily on IPC and Clock. To give you an Idea of the problem , High clocked/overclocked Skylake I3 with 2C/4T will beat slower clocked 4 and more Core CPUs with same architeture.
  8. @Chew the only software issue (in regards of performance)i have on my PC is Squad since i deletet ARK :-p If you look at the GPU and CPU utilization in this screen you can see GPU utilzation and Clock/Voltagestep --> indicating that there is a massive Bottleneck on the CPU side , looking a CPU utilization my guess would be a drawcall bottleneck but this is just a guess without proper monitoring tools. @Root when you actually look at the screenshot you`ll see there is neighter a Temp. or a Powerlimit issue. Sqauds sensitivity for Driver versions is part of this bad performance but iam in iam not willing to choose a particularly one for one alpha title i hardly play currently.
  9. Squad patch 9.17 FPS: ~25-30 minimum CPU: i7 5820K @ 3.4Ghz GPU: GTX 1080 FTW 1860Mhz max Boost RAM: 64 GB in QC 2400Mhz Cl 15 Squad on an 1TB EVO 850 res 2560x1080 Cache cleared after the Update , get even bad FPS in Singelplayer now ( Screenshot shows Al bash in Singelplayer via adminchangemap).
  10. Release after v10? Maybe

    Game is far from playable performance wise thats my personal number one problem. I my opinion a Beta should have all core features in it , That would be Helis, MBT, Aircraft, reasonal Medic system , Animation/inventorysystem and ok perfroming 100ppl servers. When the core game and its systems is technicaly healthy and working missing diversity in Maps, Factions;Weapons,Playmodes won`t matter that much cause MoD`s can even this out.
  11. New PC - Nvidia 1080

    -The Motherboard MSI X99A Gaming is s 2011V3 board so it wont work with a 7600K aka S1151 CPU -1080STIX ist quite high on the Price side for a 1080 if you can spend this much a cheap 1080Ti like KFA or Zotac may be worth a thought in regards of targeted 3440x1440 resolution. -7600K is EoL ,seeing its a futhur upgrad a Coffelake based CPU like 8600K would be a better choice once availibility rises and prices drop +60min FPS is hardly to obtain without OCing your CPU to 4,5Ghz+ even on 7600K or better.
  12. Yet another FPS topic (low fps)

    In what way is a DDR4 upgrade required. If you are someone who wants the best performance in 99% of games your money will be best spent on a better cpu/gpu. I can't think of any game that shows "noticeable" performance from ddr4 ram Well with the exception of Skylake thats also EoL any new plattform will require DDR4 you don`t have a Choice to keep your DDR3 . Ramspeed ( dosent matter if its DDR4 or DDR4 ) on almost any game in CPU limited scences. Some sensitive Examples , ARMA 3 , Witcher 3 ; BF 4 .... SQUAD someone with a 6700K here in forums did a test while back and got noteabale gains from 2133 -3200. Have to find the balance in Ram buying while DDR4000 cost at least twice as much then 2133 , DDR 3000/3200 can be aquired for 10-20 % higher cost thats the sweetspot i personaly looking for.
  13. What graphics card?

    The 1070 : cheaper , cooler, less powerhungry, availid from Boardpartners with a decent custom cooler. Onyl real benifity the 56 has over the 1070 is FreeSync , Meaning that a decent monitor will be around 100 bucks cheaper then the G Sync version. Both are around same performance lvl . Its on you to judge whats more important.
  14. Help me finding GPU

    Basicly not even a 1080Ti is overkill even with a 1080P Monitor , you can still activate DSR , SQUAD benifits pretty good from it in regards of distance visibility and pixelation. I Did some test in Singelplayer a while back with a OC 1080 (2154/5500 Mhz ) on a 4,4 Ghz 5820K and was partially GPU Limited in 1440P , 4k was allready unter 60 FPS min due GPU to Weak ,so get the strongest GPU you can your buget allows.
  15. can i run it on this pc

    Simple answer , No.
