Sycholic posted a topic in ARMA 3 - TROUBLESHOOTINGNot sure if anyone has tried or reported this. Apparently when I apply the 'hyperthreading' (aka multi-threading option) start to get blinking/artifacts dealing with shadows with my 1950x TR. Should I be using this option for a non Intel or not? if not, am I multithreading still? Given I got 16cores/32threads to use, brings up a important question as to if arma can even effectively use my CPU to it's fullest or does the game need to be updated for even this possiblity? Any feedback would be appreciated.
I'm using an AMD HD 6970 and used to get around around 40fps on high settings, 1680x1050. After the Tanoa install, my fps dropped to around 30fps on Altis and 25 fps on Tanoa. So I'm planing to upgrade to the latest AMD GPUs. I know BIS is a wintel nvidia gameworks shop and for that AMD GPU owners have to accept being treated as second class users but a disparity of over 50% between similar price/performance category GPUs is remarkable. The only reasoning I can get out of this is development efforts spent on only one vendor platform while AMD users are left to their own. I will still be getting an AMD GPU as there are other task I benefit from it; deciding between the RX-470 and RX-480. I hope BIS developers will take note the this unjust disparity and work with AMD towards giving your AMD GPU customers a bit better experience with ARMA 3.
TheRiddick posted a topic in ARMA 3 - PORTSJust thought I mention that the game runs pretty good with the recent AMD beta driver release (not open-source one). In fact allot of games run pretty good now, and I run at 4k with a 390x card, the website says only certain cards work, but what AMD was meant to say is those cards are whats tested. Many have it running on other hardware. A few things to note for new whipper snappers. 1) Driver works on more then whats listed, even reports of people with GCN1.0 hardware getting it working. 2) Is UBUNTU based for the moment as its beta 3) I have tested it with Kernel 4.6 and that works well, your mileage may vary with older kernels. 4) Mutter and certain Window Managers can cause WHITE SCREEN issue, I use compton without any troubles. 5) You need a patch to resolve Feral Interactive Games not working (not ARMA3 luckily), COH2 doesn't do so well performance wise but SOM is GREAT! -ask me if you need a link to the patch url 6) Follow AMD instructions on website closely, be sure to install Vulkan part also, it really is quite easy, if you get any issues try uninstalling and reinstalling driver. Note down any issues you face and come ask, I 'MAY' be able to help.
