  1. Where Did My FPS Go?

    Win 10 allows you to manually park cores. Note, they are listed as threads, such as if you have quad core with hyper threading you'll see core0 - 8. So, to shut down one core you close two threads. To make this as quick as possible for testing purposes, start at max threads and reduce as the next time you open windows you'll see the previous max threads ie 8 - 6 - 4 -2. If you try and go from one core up you'll have to do twice the amount of restarts as after you test on one core you'll have to enable all 4 cores again, restart, then limit to two cores etc. etc. Edit, thus my saying I have only three cores enabled is based on 6 threads, as the i7-3770k is a hyper threaded CPU each core has 2 threads (4x2 = 8) but on my new i5-8400 I only have core0-6 listed because the i5's don't hyper thread (6x2). And even with my new 8400, parking cores increases my FPS for whatever crazy reason.

    What do the icons mean? Star means favorites I would suppose, what are the other two?

    *Robin Williams Live on Broadway Buzzer impersonation* If you had bothered to read my post that isn't even close to accurate. I have to close down my CPU cores to increase frame rates.

    Agree, I used to be into max FPS before DX11 came out and changed "the game" so that it no longer required brute power to get good looking games. Now my requirement is simply a "smooth" game play, and this game, for now, does not. I'm very hopeful it will in the future because I thoroughly enjoy this game. On a side note, BF4 went from 110 FPS to 205 FPS on a full 64p server. Frostbite is just exponentially better. My only expectation from the outdated UR engine is simply for a smooth game play. And constant dips to 42 FPS in a massive 32v32 battle...when compared to FB 32v32 that stays in triple digits...UR needs to be overhauled not updated

    Let me enlighten you. On a full 78 person server, or whatever size you play on, your system is calculating what EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING as well as yourself. Just because you can't see them, unless your wall hacking, it's not just YOU on the screen. That is the difference between a full server and an empty server. Class dismissed.

    That blanket statement you made is sadly very ignorant. Total usage is only pointless in non-multi-core games, or games that can only handle a certain amount of multi-cores, like this game ONLY when you have a CPU with more cores than supported! This game, as far as I can test on three different CPU, the 3350P, 3770k, and the 8600, that this game is most efficient with three cores and that core only runs at most, 50% usage and the other two cores hover around 43%. My latest test with the 8600, I'm at work I'll provide an SS in the same manor as before after I get home from classes tonight, is that the same holds true, it is best when I park cores so that only three cores run. Last night I was playing and my FPS was 57 - 60. Clearly a Gen 8 intel that has a peak speed of 4 GHz single core can only raise 10 FPS when in every other game I play I had at LEAST 90 FPS increase. It's a game issue, not hardware. So my advice to everyone is save your money, this game isn't worth buying a new system just to play at 60 FPS, 70 FPS on a unpopulated map.
  7. Where Did My FPS Go?

    My dad needed a new PC and wanted to buy mine so I did and built a new Gen 8 system. All my other games got at LEAST 90 more FPS. This game? 10 FPS increase LAWL. Moral of the story, confirmed software issue, buy even the most modern Gen 8 Intel CPU's with the OC 300 Mobo will get you 60 FPS in a live game on a full server.

    my k is Overclocked to factory settings, I'm talking about the knuckle heads that want to abuse their system and get clock rates higher than manufacture settings. And when I say 40%, I'm not talking about "over all usage". My CPU core 0, the single core thread, when my FPS is 22, it's still below 50% and my GPU is around 55% Neither is being maxed out, ever. Thus back to my original point, I wanted to make people aware it's not a "bottleneck" issue with the game, it's something else is holding this game back. Either way, goal achieved, this has been passed on. TY Dubs

    That's not the point, the point is 60% of the CPU is being wasted by piss poor coding. The only way over clocking will benefit was if I shut down two of my cores and max o'ced and risk hurting my CPU. (Which shows you have to "abuse" your system to make the game run "properly"). Again, no point in sweating this games FPS when it's clearly a game coding issue.

    Read above....GTX 1060 6GB...as said. i7-3770k is Gen2 IVY Bridge I believe.
  11. Where Did My FPS Go?

    Here is my FPS with quad cores Here is my FPS with Trio Cores And here is my FPS with DUO cores Parking two cores speeds up the game by forcing the CPU to work harder. Trio cores is best FPS for me so far because of the crappy game engine.
  12. CPU Under Utilized

    Yes, the problem is the game. So me dropping $600 for a new system won't help being a quad core only runs at 40% speed the way it is, CPU isn't even being bottle necked.

    MSI H77-G43 i7-3770k Kingston DDR3 1600 16GB RAMP MSI 1060 6GB Samsung 128 GB SSD Same server, map, and full 80/80 players 4 core 8 thread (4c8t) 41 FPS 3c6t 47 FPS 2c4t 44 FPS 1c2t wasn't even worth the SS, it was 14 fps. the best FPS is 3c6t for some reason, I figured the dual core would be best, but it's better than quad core. Now, as the SS show, this was an 80/80 server from the same spot in spawn. I'll be playing with 3c6t for a while and will see how it handles in the middle of a fire fight. Maybe the Quad core will give a consistent 41FPS and the 3c6t may dip below 41 during a battle...we'll see.

    I have to hit the sack for work in the am. I'll look into parking all my cores and working up from single to quad and see how it does.
  15. CPU Under Utilized

    IDK, I'm a minor programmer myself, I cannot think of any reason that a program would only be limited to run at 40%...CPU *SHOULD* be running at 100% (as fast as they can) to get operations done.
