  1. Sorry for the late reply, but I am very grateful for your help 😃 Arma is running on M.2, so there should be no problem there. I'll be sure to check out the thread you referred to, and maybe ask there about my processor. Lastly; very helpful tips on the server-front. Headed over there right now!
  2. I recently fulfilled a childhood promise to myself: to buy a proper gaming PC. Specs: ASUS ROG Strix X570-F Gaming AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4 3600 MHz 16GB MSI Radeon RX 6800 XT Gaming X Trio Proper cooling etc. I expected it would run ArmA 3 maxed out at 60+ fps without breaking a sweat, but it does not. I have to admit it is a bit disappointing, although I am also happy to have better performance than ever. After reading numerous threads on optimization, and playing around with the settings quite a bit, I have come to understand the CPU is the problem and not the GPU. In singleplayer a lot can be achieved by adjusting the viewing distance, but when I host a server to play with friends this does not help. Indeed, I can set graphics to maximum and to minimum without much impacting FPS -- especially on more demanding scenarios, such as Dynamic Recon Ops on Tanoa (Runs in the tens or twenties). The Apex campaign was a lot better even while hosting, although for some reason it hogged an increasing amount of VRAM. By the fifth mission it had reached 14GB. Odd. Three questions: Can I do anything to make ArmA better utilize my CPU? Can I do something smarter to host a multiplayer game on some cores and play ArmA on others? Can you recommend an easy-to-use and resonably priced ArmA 3 server provider, than can be configured with mods etc.? Cheers!
