First time poster here!
I've been playing Squad for about a year now and upgraded my old Radeon 7970 to a new Asus GTX 1080 Strix yesterday.
The card hasn't given any errors or driver issues but I'm only getting about 40-50 fps on most maps.
Al Basrah for example seems particularly taxing and there Im only getting 40fps (showFPS).
What is odd is that my friend who lives in the same neighbourhood with same ISP and line speed running a GTX970 gets 55fps+ on the same map and same server. Granted he's playing at 1080 (with vsync on!), but I can drop my resolution to 1080 from 1440 with everything on low and vsync off yet still only get 40-45fps.
So 1440 at epic settings with vsync on, or 1080 with everything low and vsync off... same FPS. **scratches head**
I've tried a couple of performance tweaks suggested by people on forums with no real success.
Is the 1080 platforum unoptimised for squad?
Any meaningful input would be appreciated.
