Post your rig, GRAW settings and GRAW framerate


Recommended Posts

I think it would be helpful to people considering buying the game as well as those struggling for frames if we started to paint a picture of GRAW performance based on people's hardware, GRAW settings, driver version and framerate. People could get a better idea of the hardware needed, maybe what helps, what doesn't help etc. You can even cut and paste what I have listed below and enter your own values. And I've probably left some stuff out.

CPU: XP2600+M @ 2310Mhz with 220FSB

GPU: 6800GT (with Nvidia recommended overclock)

RAM: 2GB

SND: Audigy 2 (latest drivers)

DRIVERS: XTREME-G 84.56 (www.tweaksrus.com)

SETTINGS:

Resolution: 1024x768

Texture Quality: MEDIUM

Texture Filtering: AF4X

Effects Quality: LOW

Dynamic Shadows: LOW

Dynamic Lighting: OFF

Post Effects: LOW

EAX: ENABLED

Audio Quality: High

TWEAKS:

Texture Management (XML): All set to TRUE

PEAK FRAMES: ~50

AVG FRAMES: ~35-40

MIN FRAMES: ~20-25

THOUGHTS: The Texture Management tweak didn't seem to help me - just makes load times longer. I can't comment on the drivers as I have not downgraded them to test. Changing my Max Frames to Render Ahead from 3 to 1 had no effect on my framerate. The only thing that helped my frames was overclocking my video card. Upping your cpu's FSB usually has a direct effect on frames but I can't attest to that in GRAW. Actually, I'm getting game crashes that I'm sure are related to my overclocking.

SUMMARY: With the framerates I listed above, I consider the game to be borderline playable. I could handle dips to the low 30s but anything lower is pretty unplayable. Never thought my 6800GT would get obsolete so quickly. Am wondering if getting an Athlon 64 would help.

intel p4 3.0

2gb ram

x800pro

1280x768 widescreen

textures - high

effects - medium

post processing effects - high

AF x 4

dynamic lighting - on

shadows - off

25 - 50 fps

avg fps - 35

if i turn shadows on i lose about 5 fps

and i know if you turn post processing effects to medium it will gain another 5 or so fps but i find the way the light "bleeds" on high helps to remove some of the jaggedness due to no AA

thats a very nice setup you got there tbh :), u can get those gt's to 1700mhz mem if not higher, and about 700mhz on core, that would get you some nice frame rates with everything on high :)

Turning off Dynamic Lights boosts me about 5 fps.

Although the fps is usually right around 30, it feels more like 15-20 with crazy mouse lag.

The settings I have really doesnt matter. I might as well just crank them all the way up. It doesnt make a lick of difference to my performance. I absolutley cannot make it any worse or any better. Its really mind boggling. The only setting that has any effect on my frame rate is the Sound and Post effect options

Just for fun I put my resolution on 800x600 with all settings on their lowest. I still got exactly the same frame rate. :wacko:

Sliprock, you seem to have pretty much the same setup and almost the same frame rate as me. You could probably add a few frames by overclocking your cpu - but would it be worth it?

Alot of the rigs here and the framerates seem consistent. Doesn't seem that 2GB of ram (over 1GB) is making much of a difference. Maybe a bit of a boost with an Athlon 64 over the XPs - probably not as much as I had hoped. I did gain some frames by lowering alot of the settings and turning some off. It seems that the best way to improve performance is to sell your car and buy huge-###### video card. Not what I was hoping. :wall:

SYSTEM

  • Motherboard: ASUS P4V800D-X
  • CPU: Pentium 4 3.00 GHz, 800 FSB w/ HT
  • GPU: PowerColor X800GT 256 MB PCIe (@ 570 MHz/1000 MHz) (Catalyst 6.4 drivers)
  • RAM: 1 GB PC2700 DDR
  • Sound: SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio

SETTINGS

  • Resolution: 1024x768 @ 60 Hz
  • Texture quality: Medium
  • Texture filtering: Anisotropic 4X
  • Effects quality: Medium
  • Dynamic shadows: Off
  • Dynamic lights: Off
  • Post effects: Low
  • EAX: Enabled

FRAMERATE

  • Peak: 34 FPS
  • Average: ~21 FPS
  • Minimum: 17 FPS

No .xml file tweaks, I tried messing around with it but it didn't cause any noticeable improvement.

Some in-game setting also didn't seem to make much difference -- textures quality at "Low" or "Medium" performed the same, as did effects quality, post effects (except on "High", where it does decrease the FPS) and EAX on/off.

Turning off dynamic shadows helped though, probably up to 5 FPS.

As I said on another thread, disabling my onboard sound raised it by 10 FPS or more, so not having a dedicated sound card is probably what's bottlenecking it the most.

ya i seem to get about the same FPSs no matter what I do., havent tried lowering it to 8x6 but that must look real bad without AA.
