Seems strange, are you sure it's not an hardware or software fault?

Yay!

What do you mean "unplayable"? Slow down? Texture Loss? Settings?

Any suggestions for this type of system?

i7 3770K @4.4

GTX 670

16GB ram

1920x1200

So far High preset gave me pretty decent experience but getting occasional drops here and there. Autodetect failed completely for me, it sets settings too high.

So, has anybody tried running this on Windows XP? Technically it's not supported in Arma III but I'm wondering what the results are.

gotta have dx11, so unless there's a hacked version of dx11 for xp it's impossible.

It runs pretty good on my i5-750 on 4.2 Ghz, even with low framerates it's decently smooth, and I can have high framerates as long as I keep the viewdistance at 2K or something. Towns seem the heaviest on the cpu, always been the case with arma of course.

Anywhere from 45-60FPS during first load and around 10 minutes in before some random FPS dropping bug occurs. After 10 minutes the framerate drops slowly and slowly until you are down into the near single digits.

I play completely maxed out. max draw distance etc, 8xAA FXAA-Ultra, everything on Ultra/Very High

i7-3770k Overclocked

16GB G.Skill Ram 1.75Ghz

AMD Sapphire 7950 Overclocked

Corsair H80 Watercooling

MSI Z77A-GD65

Night vision drops me to around 30fps.

Probably some memory problems due to the Alpha state of the game...

Anybody knows what the Atoc setting is, and if it's worth keeping it on?

Yay!

Intel Core2 Duo CPU E7400 @ 3110.81 MHz (296.27 * 10.5)

A3 doesnt seem much more demanding on the system. Should run at appropriate settings.

If I can play it that's enough for me now because I really want to try alpha. It looks great with all these new features. Thanks for the answer.:)

I'll start by saying just how good the alpha looks and I can therefore understand that its demanding on a PC. I've also seen the issues with CPU usage and Steam and will try these fixes later, when I'm back on my home computer.

Looking through this thread there's a lot of awesome (and expensive :eek:) systems, and I thought I had a reasonable one myself. However this alpha has seriously questioned that (that's a good thing I guess, means a better game :) )

My computer consists of:

Intel i5 3570k 3.4GHZ

Sapphire 7950 3GB OC

8GB RAM

When playing the Alpha yesterday, Ultra/Very High and High decimated my computer, I was getting 7fps on High. I then tried Standard and got a steady 40fps with it jumping to 30 in towns. Is this about right for this game currently, seems odd that I can't even play with anything on high. I understand its an alpha and performance will increase but I did expect a bit more :D

You could try OCing your CPU a bit, but I'm pretty sure the engine isn't optimized for the broadest range of possibile configurations yet...

Yay!

Thanks Gliptal,

Yeh, I'm not basing everything on this Alpha, but I do hope I can run on high after BI has had time to optimize it a bit more using all our comments :)

Try to turn off AA and set view distance to 2000. Also try to turn down post-processing.

You're welcome, but boy my grammar's terrible...

Also shadows are quite the perfomance hog...
