my friends rig:
>16gb 1333hz ram
>gigabyte g1 980ti
>gigabyte b75-d3v mobo
>850w evga psu
he runs gta v @1080p with all setting maxed out only 15 fps
is this the way its meant to be or has he got a faulty card or is something else wrong?
all drivers are up to date
>yes i killed a thread for this
>it was only a shitposting thread tho
how reliable is msi afterburner for reading temperatures?
A) 850w might not be enough to power everything
B) CPU is bottlenecking like a madman (doubt it) or possibly faulty
3) His GPU is faulty, maybe SLI is not configured, but even with one card it should give you more than 60fps on 1080p
Fuck if i know.
Most of the advanced settings murder frame rates. Disable all this shit and set AA to x4 as >>323379953 said.
I have a 970 and i5-2500k and have no issues.
Nobody actually "maxes out" their settings unless they're retarded
8x MSAA for example is almost no noticeable difference from 4x but literally cuts your FPS in half
Don't just put everything to as high as it goes so you can go "hurr durr master race"
Put model and texture detail as high as possible, shadows and shaders really high, 2x MSAA, and if you still have a good frame rate, keep upping things. If you're not actually looking at the graphical differences vs performance hit and are instead just putting everything as high as it goes you're a tard
Also that CPU is shit. Like really shit. That's bottlenecking hard. Turn down shadows.
>runs GTA5 at 15 fps at 1080p
>PCfags wonder why consolefags choose simplicity over troubleshooting
Check the bios settings. It should have an option for high performance mode or something. Reset to default bios settings then save and exit, go back in and set it to performance mode and see if that helps.
I have an i5 and it runs literally just fine
he doesnt have sli
even with hurr durr masterrace settings?
the other guy claim its not possible to do that even with 980ti : >>323381825 >>323381551 >>323381228 >>323381148 >>323379953
nah its steam version afaik
i cant he is sleeping, i am assuming every option is turned as high as possible
Is op still around? I can troubleshoot if you really need the help. You'll have to post a couple things though
>entire afterburner monitor including cpu/ram temps/usage
>gta v settings
The dumb fuck didnt install his cpu cooler correctly and now its throttling/melting. Tell him to reinstall it and use new thermal paste. If that doesnt work do it for him, or buy a new cpu cooler.
>why doesn't it work?
>cpu going fucking nuclear
>that fan setup
why not use a standing coolermaster fan that lines up with your rear exhaust instead of that side blowing shit?
yeah im around but my friend is sleeping pic related is the last msi afterburner screen he sent me, i dont have the options but assume they are all maxed out. Idk what nvidia dsr is
yeah ill tell him to reapply paste, not sure how you can tell cooler is installed incorrectly tho?
I dont think he could get double digit fps at all in gta with those settings if gpu was disabled
Using lens flare won't help you.
forgot to relate a pic
cables are removed temporarily for the picture, they are plugged in during gameplay
nah he is not a retard also
> I dont think he could get double digit fps at all in gta with those settings if gpu was disabled
Lightning friend :^)
I can tell its installed incorrectly because its hitting motherfucking 98C. Thats 208F in case you are a retarded burger. Your cpu really shouldnt ever go over 70, or 60 without overclocking.
The cpu is most likely throttling so as not to become damaged, although if you keep using it at that temp it will die.
Tell me what to do then. Seems alright when in motion.
I actually had a 2600K till last week, OP. I'm sure that is the bottleneck. Though it clocks at 3.1 i think or something alike, i think it doesn't have many functions of more advanced processors. I changed mine to an i5 4690. Slightly better clock and definitely better gameplay experience, with GTA 5 especially. and i only have 8 gb ram and my r9 270.
>3rd party programs always report temperatures correctly
also op for the love of god tell your friend to NOT USE msaa on the settings, it lags the fuck out of the game for me and i can't see any improvement in the game.
