Thread: If the game could choose hardware

  1. #21
    Another important thing to consider would be the software. What windows version would be recommended? I heard of some problems with Win8.1 and Win10.
    Which Nvidia driver version is the newest and still has no/little problems running TSW?

    And how is DX9 vs DX11 affecting performance? I had no luck with DX11, the game crashed daily. But others may have better luck using DX11.

    Edit, if it wasn't mentioned earlier; I use Windows 10 x64 Pro.

    Ironically, it seems that new AMD cards are performing much better than new Nvidia cards are.

    I very recently upgraded my system:

    Intel Core i5-7600K 3.8GHz Quad-Core
    16 GB DDR4-3200
    Radeon RX 480 8GB
    SSD
    (Still using Windows 7 )

    I have virtually no issues with the game's performance, even in DX11, and get no weird graphical glitching that has otherwise been occurring more recently with the newer cards/drivers.

    That said, CPU is arguably the biggest bottleneck of the game's performance in the long run, and not for reasons most would expect. Ultimately it comes down to the fact that the UI uses Flash, and Flash is incredibly inefficient and limited to a single thread. All of the client slow downs I experience in the game are related to too much going on in the UI, which can be alleviated somewhat by doing things like turning off damage numbers, replacing the default health bars with more efficient addon ones, etc.

    Are you sure it's not the cpu? I upgraded recently from:

    • Asus P8z77-V
    • i7-3770k @ 4,2GHz
    • G.Skill ripjaws 16GB 1866MHz CL9-10-9

    To:
    • Asus Prime z270-A
    • i7-7700k @ 4,5GHz
    • G.Skill ripjaws 16GB 3200MHz CL16-18-18

    All the other parts in my system remained the same, including my GTX1080.

    The difference between the two is quite noticeable, a lot more than what I expected, which is quite surprising. Then again, I got pretty hefty performance improvement also in Arma2 benchmark, going from 76fps to 102fps (+34% more fps) with the change and Arma2 is known to be heavily CPU limited.

    The CPU upgrade definitely did help performance wise.

    With regards to GPUs, I more meant in terms of raw graphical performance and issues. The past year or two Nvidia really seems to have been phoning things in with their driver support, and there have been a lot of reports of poor performance with older games with their newer cards/drivers, TSW included. AMD on the other hand, I grabbed the latest drivers last week after putting my new build together, and am able to run TSW in DX11 mode with absolutely no performance or graphical glitching (texture/lighting issues) like many people have reported getting with Nvidia cards.

    Game A performs/works better with Nvidia, game B performs/works better with AMD.

    If you could have both Nvidia and AMD GPU mounted on the motherboard....

    My GTX 780 died the other day and while waiting for my new gpu i have to use a hd 7950 3gb. To my surprise my fps in NYR NM went up from 15-20 fps to 40-50 fps. also about 10 fps increase in flappy nm from 30 to 40 fps. In other instances like dungeons and scenarios i dont get a fps increase, but my fps is a lot more stable with less of a drop in combat...

    Windows 7, core i5-4670k @ 4GHz, 16gb ram, graphics at medium settings.

    If your motherboard and case can accommodate the space that two graphics cards will take up then there is no reason why you can't do this. It does require extra setup and settings tweaking along with either a second monitor for the second card and/or a KVM, but it's definitely doable.

    Same CPU as I have and overclocked the same as mine as well. I run on a 760 with max settings (3.8 effects detail) and I get 40-50 fps in NYR and 60-70 out in the world. Not sure why your 780 was underperforming.

    No idea either why the performance was so bad, especially in nm raids, but in other games and benchmarks everything was ok

    I am thinking of upgrading my super old GTX 670 2GB to a GTX 1060 6GB, most likely an ASUS OC model.
    Anyone have experience With the game With the 1060 card?
