Default Re: Oblivion PC Initial Gameplay / Performance Impressions

Well I'm absolutely shocked. This game runs pretty damn good on my 6800GT / Xeons setup. The launcher setup program setup my machine for High Quality as the default settings, and the game runs smoothly at 1680x1050 widescreen w. no AA and HDR turned off. Check windows taskman, its shows that all four CPU threads are being used.

Does anyone know if there is a built in frame counter for the game? Right now it feels about 25-30 FPS, but I would like to get a more accurate number for benchmarking.

dude, everyone said "damn it run incredibly well on my .... blablabalbva"

ok now, go through the sewer, and reach the first outdoor step.
now , look , and say us how many fps you got .

At the min i got 15 fps , whatever i set . i can slide down to 0 my tree fade, or put it at MAX , it doesnt change [AT ALL]
same with grass. whatever grass appear at 3Meter or 40 meter, FPS are strictly SAME.
many thing are strange :/.

there is a bottleneck somewhere, but unlike usually , i dont find it

Well from the sound of things, this game may have the same horrible (and unnecessary) CPU bottleneck that Morrowind had. If people are changing graphics settings all around and getting the same horrid performance in the same spot, then it has to be CPU. Or maybe a bug, but thats unlikely.

I havent played it myself though, so this is just a theory based on what some people have said.

What are your specs stisoas?

Create a profile for it if you don't have one already and then you can probably just edit the c:\windows\system32\nvapps.xml file and manually change the SLI value. The 81.98s and later may already have a profile. In that case, just edit the appropriate field.

<PROPERTY Label="multichip_rendering_mode" Value="1"/>

or the pre-existing profile entry might look like this:

<PROPERTY Label="multichip_rendering_mode" Value="0x00000001" Itemtype="predefined"/>


Both of those are AFR. If you had a pre-existing profile, you're probably already using AFR.

Just installed FRAPs. Using the default High Quality autodetect with HDR off at 1680 x 1050, I average about 40-45 FPS indoors, and low 20's - high 20's outdoors. Like I said, I am very pleasantly surprised.

I have AA and AF set to application preference under my NV Control panel, and VSynch turned off within the game.

My rig has Dual Hyperthreaded ES Prestonia based 3.4Ghz Xeons with 2 gigs of Corsair TwinX and a 6800GT.

Strange, it sounds like people with 6800GTs are much happier with their overall performance than people with x1900s or 7 series cards

Probably because they were like me and were expecting a total slideshow

Performance aside - this looks like it going to be a fun game. I really like how they streamlined the interface over Morrowind. Seems to be alot more user friendly.
