SLI don't work at all in this. Got 30fps on low disabled the SLI and now like 55-60fps on what, vhigh-ultra

Im gonna disable SLI i knew it didn't use the second card at all but didn't bother disabling it. Seems SLI enabled made the game worse for you, i swear im done running a SLI system in the future. Just waiting on that 1080Ti now haha. Thanks guys.

Game doesn't even appear on Geforce Experience by the way.

Yeah I have no idea. I'm sure I read something about drivers too but ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah I've had 2 SLI systems and never again.

When it works it's beautiful but it early does much at all or in cases like this make the game have negative performance.

TI bby grill is what I'm looking for too.

If you play at lower difficulty settings and just rush into every enemy camps, then the game will become repetitive very quickly.

Disappearing vehicules is the most annoying shit ever. I plan a exit helicopter up in the mountains, go down on the village take the targets out, get my skill point and intel, climb up and still see the helicopter icon (and can still hear it) and it just disappears when I'm 120m out. It's like there's a 5-6mn timer of vehicule despawn, pretty ridiculous for an AAA open world.
I remember in the Witcher 3 some corpses stayed after hours and hours of play and just came back to loot what was forgotten and here you have vehicules which is a key element of the gameplay just disappearing in front of your eyes :/

Besides that I'm just taking in the sights, going through little towns collecting intel and I'm enjoying myself while I wait for a buddy to get the game. The friendly AI is ridiculous and I had one guy just stroll around the camp while having 3 narcos around him, the camp was on alert and they didn't shoot him and he didn't shoot back either, just when I got there shit started happening lol.

lol. While the Itacua banter between the guys can get annoying (because I went through both betas and already heard it) I gotta say they really seem to have fleshed out the cartel and the people you have to take out giving you info about them through various means like intel files to read, videos and convos. I liked that in Horizon and I'm liking it here too. Makes me more invested in the missions I have to complete.

Game is pretty much exactly the same from performance to control. Maybe some tweaks were made to cars but helicopters are just as odd.

Biggest difference for me is that Ghost difficulty was renamed "Extreme" and they removed the orange general enemy position mark on the minimap. So now you won't even know an enemy is there until you see them/spot them in co-op. That's a great change. Can't really speak to their AI so far. Enemy fire muzzle sprite is still horrendous, sadly.

What, really? I thought the orange blob was excellent because it gave immediate oversight of the situation. You immediately know if you've tagged/taken down all enemies in an area.

Weird to remove such a mechanic.

Well it's the highest difficulty. They advertise it as the most simulation-like mode they have. It's what people want from that level I would think.

I wish they'd include Future Soldier outfits as a special costume or something like that, I'd gladly even pay for that. :D

Also, I'd love an option to remove our backpacks and secondary weapons, I can appreciate wanting to make it look practical and semi-realistic, but what I'd appreciate even more, is an option to get rid myself of all this clunky looking stuff on my back, I can suspend my disbelief just fine so I wouldn't worry myself with things like 'oh, where does he keep his drone'.

btw. Auto-cover is still broken for me, it randomly just stops working until next loading screen, didn't have that issue in the beta. :/ It's definitely tied to exting a vehicle, at random, it just stops working after you exit a car or smth.

Was the input lag addressed at all? That's my biggest gripe and I'd be willing to give it a shake if the issues been addressed.

Alternatively, was the PC performance fixed? It was unacceptable during the Beta.

Performance feels the same as beta for me. I'm on a 980ti though. With a controller there is a noticeable lag in switching weapons and abrupt movement changes. Movement might be due to speed subtlety and momentum catching up. Keyboard weapon switching is far more responsive. Stance changes are instant across keyboard and controller.

A huge difference for me between the beta and this release version on PC. The beta was just about unplayable because of constant stuttering but all that stuttering is simply gone now. It's still pretty demanding game for hardware but now with the stuttering gone I'm more than happy with the ~60fps I get at 3440x1440 with a single 1080.

I think the game is going to do really well all around. There are not many squad-based shooters with co-op in a massive open world like this. Especially on consoles.

I can't confirm this right now, but the poor performance is apparently tied to having a controller plugged in and/or controller support enabled in game:

I had both a controller plugged in and the support enabled in the beta and my performance was pretty mediocre (never higher than 35-50 FPS with mixed high/ultra settings at 1440p with a Titan X Maxwell).

Add to that number at least 25K UPlay only players. All in all solid numbers for launch day.

Game will sell fine. They really need to do an update for stealth and squad tactics though. The lack of an ability to move bodies, perform takedowns from cover, and no smoke or gas grenades is absolutely mental.

Not much difference for me to be honest. It feels pretty much the same as the open beta.

I'm hitting 50-60 frames most of the time but it feeeeeels really stuttery. I haven't had a play yet so I'm going to have a poke around this evening with the settings.

When I did the same in the open beta it didn't seem to make all that much difference, I lowered the resolution to 1080p and set most settings to medium/high instead of the default Ultra config the game set and would only gain 3-5 frames. I think I'm hitting some severe CPU bottlenecks with this one!

From reading the reviews in progress, it's because the game is pretty massive. One guy played for 15 hours and said there was probably another 40-60 he needed to go through to get to the end.

Ah, ok. I figured as much. I'm guessing review copies went out late. I don't mind waiting because I wasn't going to get this till summer anyway but it was strange that a big release hardly had reviews.
