    AMD CPU Bottleneck?

    The executable never goes above 2 GB. It can use 20 gb (mixed with page file).

    AMD CPU Bottleneck?

    Mate, the issues about performance with AI are not related with CPU, are related with memory and probably the fact of that this game is a 32 bit application. With ARMA 3 the RAM (memory) management is something peculiar, and we can separate it in 2 subjects. In first place read this: https://www.bistudio.com/blog/breaking-the-32-bit-barrier Now, this breaking barrier is because the game is using system Page File basically without limit and not physical memory, means that your Disk is being used as memory, let's say. But, this architecture for memory management is only related with textures/terrain (shaders) means the shaders are being loaded into system Page File, this is useful for large environments (Altis for instance), still has some impact in performance because keeps being swapped between physical memory and Page File (your Disk). So, (unless you are using a RAMDISK or similar) if you have RAM enough, as a matter of performance the best for ARMA 3 is to set System Page File to 400 MB (the minimum accepted by the game). This will prevent Page File usage. Now, AI is not related or linked to the archicture described above, is dependant of the amount of RAM used by the executable (arma.exe) which and because is a 32 bit app still is limited to 2048 Mb as maximum usage. It has become clear that after some point (AI ammount) these 2 GB of RAM are enough to manage AI with acceptable performance. Maybe if one day this game become a 64 bit app we can have this fixed. Want to make a experience? Use the startup parameter -maxMem= and set the limit to 1024, then open Altis and you will see that your performance is not affected. Next, add some AI and open it again, you will notice (for sure) the huge performance drop. Next, remove -maxMem= or set it to 2048 (max allowed) and open it again with the same AI, you will see a performance increase. This is from where the AI impact in performance is coming, not from CPU.

    [COOP-24] Cyclone.Altis

    Looks interesting, but where is the enemy? Already went across all over Altis and I dont see a single enemy. What is supposed to do? Also, looking at your mission.sqf looks a bit messed, with some weird symbols or whatever is it. Any clue? Your concept sounds interesting and I would like to try.

    AI Helicopter Gunners

    The AI in gunships should be allowed to fire missiles, also.

    Unless its a Cold War.

    Fed up with that AI

    AI is not perfect, obviously. Maybe because is just AI. But if we look closer in fact is amazing what the AI can do just based on some behaviours or skill levels and I dont know any other game with a better one. AI with ARMA still is the best, in fact is better than some real players. Take a look at Insurgency (don't get me wrong, is a damn nice game and I love it), is also one game that is widely played with AI (bots), the several difficulty levels only have effect on the 'aimbot skill" of the AI, the behaviour remains the same. Want a to see a Terminator with "aimbot"? Play it against AI set in max difficulty. ARMA AI, when compared with some other games, it really looks a Einstein.

    I believe you have a AMD GPU. Did you try already Crimson drivers? Are the best for ARMA 3, shader caching saves CPU from some work. In my end game runs better with it.

    AMD CPU Bottleneck?

    That's a real 8 core CPU. Those who like 8 core CPUs should get this one instead of wasting time (and money) with some others. Not that is going to do any better for games (in general), but for sure it will fix something (probably ego related).

    AMD CPU Bottleneck?

    Lets see what some popular games say about multicore/multithread. http://i.imgur.com/XsMDmFd.jpg CS GO, Absolutely no multicore/multithread support. Anyone complains about it? http://i.imgur.com/CrSppAB.jpg Civilization V (DX11), One of the best examples on the subject, works flawless, unless you play against ALL Civilizations because then you will need a Nasa CPU. http://i.imgur.com/PfVuDdq.jpg ARMA 3, With multicore/multithread support but with an "abnormal" CPU demand. Why? Because AI. Do you know what AI means? Artificial Intelligence. Want to see less CPU on ARMA 3? Point a valid solution that can manage all the Artificial Intelligence involved without using CPU.

    AMD CPU Bottleneck?

    Not sure if is like you say. This is what I get without start parameters. http://i.imgur.com/V4Mw3cI.jpg http://i.imgur.com/6M6QVtZ.jpg This what I get using -exThreads=7 -cpuCount=4 parameters. http://i.imgur.com/J64ETRH.jpg http://i.imgur.com/1MuaeUF.jpg Looks to me much more balanced while using these startup parameters, also without parameters the first core is always running close around 90% (sometimes close to 100), while with paramters never exceeds 65%.

    I suggest you to try the following. You can use ALive, its a good way to see how cpu interacts with AI and the game in general. Set up a server and choose whatever Island, create a simple mission using ALive module where you spawn 300 AI at mission start. Follow your steps and you will see that with 1 core it will take about 3 minutes (or more) to spawn all AI and with 4 cores will take 30 seconds. Also check your fps (as client) while you are adding more cores, you will see a big difference. That's why I cant see all this "one core theory". And yes, you cant compare with those games, in fact (being fair) there is no game that you can compare with Arma, in matters of architecture and operation concept.

    R9 390 Vs R9 390X in Arma 3?

    Mate, you cant compare Arma with some other games like Crysis or Witcher, Arma is what it is. People need to understand that. About Combined Arms I dont have issues with it, stable 60 fps. The vídeo looks a bit blurry because I am playing at 1920×1200, but because some bright minds decided that 1920x1080 is the "full HD" I am forced to record at 1920x1080 for Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NikB-hoJbgM Understand Arma, learn what it is and adapt your hardware to it. The guy who have made miracles died long a go.

    DirecxtX 12 for ArmA 3?

    Forget DirectX12, basically is the same crap of DX11. Bring Vulkan.

    AMD CPU Bottleneck?

    Don't think that is true. Looks to me a balanced 4 core use. http://i.imgur.com/1MuaeUF.jpg http://i.imgur.com/J64ETRH.jpg Obviously 1 core is always working more because it is the one that is being used by DirectX 11 to communicate with GPU for rendering. Make sure that you have the proper startup parameters adjusted for your CPU configuration. https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3_Startup_Parameters

    R9 390 Vs R9 390X in Arma 3?

    Oh really? And for what do you need DirectX 11 besides rendering? Do you think that the called "issues" about CPU vs Usage/Performance are related with AI? Wrong mate, are related with rendering due to constraints of DX11. You can imagine what the operation concept of DX11 can do to a game with the architecture that Arma 3 has? Read mate, its oversimplified. http://www.littletinyfrogs.com/article/460524/DirectX_11_vs_DirectX_12_oversimplified

    AMD CPU Bottleneck?

    There is no game engine that uses more than 4 cores and all games based on DirectX 11 are stuck at one core, that's a DX11 limitation. Also for Intel users with HyperThreaded CPUs I can assure that they perform better with every game having HT disabled. The issue with AMD "8 cores" is that they are really weak.

    Maybe your wishes are coming true, since in British Army women are going to "close combat" situations after 2016. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/defence/12060225/British-Armys-women-soldiers-to-go-into-combat.html

    R9 390 Vs R9 390X in Arma 3?

    390 and 390X are the same GPU. What happens while QA verfications some GPUs do no meet the standards in matters of speed, stability, etc required for a specific classifcation so they are classified under a lower category where the operations are stable at the announced performance That's when a 390X becomes a 390, means that the user with a slight overclock can easily turn one 390 in to one 390X.

    AMD CPU Bottleneck?

    Maybe because AMD 8 core processors are in fact 4 core processors, similar to Intel HyperThreading. Probably courts will say. http://www.pcworld.com/article/3003113/components-processors/lawsuit-alleges-amds-bulldozer-cpus-arent-really-8-core-processors.html

  25. I'm still trying figure why you people say that A3 is not GPU demanding. With A3 mine 2 GPUs are reaching temperatures that no other game can give, and they are not at 100% usage, probably at 100% I would need a fire extinguisher. Not even Metro Last Night which is one of the most graphically demanding games gives me such trouble. You people still use a Celeron or you play with ultra low settings with AA and Aniso disabled? Anyway take a look. The top 10 most graphically demanding PC games. A3 is in fourth. http://www.maximumpc.com/10-most-graphically-demanding-pc-games/#page-2
