GTX 295, please help!!!
 
Hey guys I ll try to be as quick as possible!

I just bought BFG gtx 295 AND haveing some major problems plaing age of conan.
On high settings I get like 15 - 20 FPS.
On the older gtx 285 I get 30 - 60 FPS.

I have tested GTX295 in Crysis thou and it is 2x faster than 285... also in 3d mark vantage is much faster so the problem is not in gpu.

I have heard something about enabeling both GPUS on gtx 295 or something...

sorry for bad english, Im from Europe

ROCK ON!

?

Europe is a continent not a country?


Anyway, your English is very legible, which is more than I can say for some ^^.


Have you googled to see if Age of Conan actually supports SLi? The GTX 295 is basically two GTX 275's SLied together, so if the application doesnt support Sli, then it will be at the speed of a GTX 275.

Two things first, ensure SLI mode is on. You can do that in the nvidia control panel.

2nd, please check which DX mode you are on. DX10 while purdy looking, eats FPS. Make sure you are on dx9 mode.

I tend to use DX9 mode and its still visually stunning.

I have 295, and I game at 1920 by 1200 res with 4X AA and nearly everything maxed except I have SSAO disabled in game and in NV control panel which gives me acceptable fps.

Around Old Tarantia I get ...30-50 or fps i believe. In dungeons your FPS should be sky rocketing (over 100). In RAIDs where there are many particle effects your FPS will go down a little bit but, still should be high enough.

You will get low FPS in areas such as Potain where there is a lot of grass. Rendering grass is 295's weakness here.

Also ensure that if you have a multi core system, ensure you have enabled multi core mode, you can do so by pressing "ctrl_alt+c", check by looking at fps "ctrl+alt+f". This game takes advatage of an extra core i believe....you should fps rise anyway from 10-30% when multi core mode is enabled.

Funny thing Is that on GTX 285 I get like 25 - 60 fps on dx 10 on open maps
and in dungeons 100 - 120...
That s great but it is allso frustrating because card like gtx 295 should work faster, I think they ****ed up something in AOC, as I said before card is much faster in Crysis and other games than my old gtx 285.

Allso I have my other comp at work and it has 8800gts and I run AOC dx 9 at 25 - 50 fps in open areas and 100 in dungeons HIGH DETAILS so WTF????
On GTX 295 it shold run in speed of light or something but it doesn t

Make sure that you try the SLI patch found here. http://www.evga.com/articles/00463/Default.asp

that might help.

also make sure you set physics to disabled. it can be set in the same screen where you enable multi gpu.
