Got a EVGA GTX 780 Superclocked today, Borderlands 2 isn't a solid 60FPS

#1galfasanta1111Posted 10/29/2013 2:34:13 PM
I'm playing at 1080p resolution. Everything is set to it's highest, high Physx. Vsync is on at 60FPS.

It is only a solid 60FPS when there is no enemies around. Even then, depending upon the enviorment (Caustic Caverns), the framerate can drop to 40FPS. It drops to 30FPS when in intense combat. The frame rate even drops to 20FPS when I am in an intense gunfight and shooting an SMG. (ie, a gun with many bullets in a single clip.)

How is this happening?I've had a Geforce GTX 580 1.5GB ever since i've got Borderlands 2, Sept 12 last year. I never hit 20FPS.

high Physx kills framerate.

Physx is the culprit.

The game can also be pretty CPU bound. All my lows(usually bottoms out 20-30 on max settings) are from CPU bottleneck when many meshes are on screen.

Yep, Physx. While it does look cool, the performance hit you take with it doesn't really seem worth it at all.

Running an EVGA GTX 780 SC ACX and an i5-4670K. I think I've seen it go around 30 fps before, but it usually stays around 60 (everything maxed @ 1080p, except anti-aliasing, maybe). It doesn't really bother me because I never notice it stutter and Borderlands 2 isn't as fast-paced as first-person shooters like Counter-Strike or CoD, anyway.

7970 with Physx activated on my 4770k at medium and I get sold performance.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

PhysX will lower the FPS when things get hectic. I have experimented a good amount w/ that game, and I can tell you using v-sync is also gonna cause problems.

When you're running at 120hz or more, the FPS drops tend to stay above 60 when they occur, so try that and see if you get an improvement.

If I had to pin it on something it would be your CPU, especially if PhysX is accidentally running on your CPU. Do you have a decent cooler? I imagine an overclock being highly beneficial for you if you're only running 3.2ghz on a sandy bridge, I've never noticed big drops like that on my 4.4ghz IB i5 and a 670. I run everything aside from AA maxed, pretty sure I run high PhysX as well though if it's as bad as it's made out to be in this thread maybe not. I definitely get tons of debris with my Two-Fer Maggie though.
