I haven't got exact frame rates, but it's pretty smooth well over 60FPS, maybe with a few minor drops, at 3440x1440 on my i7 3770k, GTX 1070, 16GB. Haven't changed the graphic settings, it automatically set everything to Ultra.

The only downside for Ultrawide (21:9) folks is that dialogue cutscenes are 16:9.
Menus, gameplay all support 21:9 and the HUD etc scale perfectly, but it's really jarring and unfortunate that cutscenes are 16:9 as it does switch between frequently.

It's exactly like Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is, but that was fixed by a custom .exe so hopefully the same will happen here, hopefully.

You're putting unnecessary stress on your CPU at that resolution. Try fiddling with the resolution scale / Nvidia DSR if your monitor isn't able to reach 1080p.

Anyways thanks for replying :) I think I should be more than fine with my specs.

I only played a little bit, got to that first planet and first combat encounter, but it was running at 60fps pretty much the entire time - the only exception was during cutscenes with 2+ "main" character models very close to the camera where it would dip to between 52-56fps.

according to bioware twitter account, disable the corsair utility engine if you have it may fix that. Also, wait for the game to fully download (100%) may fix that issue.

Yep, afraid so. Any ingame rendered cutscene and dialogue cutscenes.

The only times where it does stay in 21:9 is when you have free movement of your character. Some dialogue moments are still in 21:9 but only for optional character dialogues like random NPCs who just say one line or something.

I'm actually surprisingly really enjoying this after reading all the negativity lately and being underwhelmed in videos. The graphics are super gorgeous too on PC. Been running it at 1080p 1.30 resolution scale and all highest settings with my GTX 1080 and i5 4670k.

It's mostly been a locked 60 fps except in fights with a lot happening I've seen drops. Gotta tweak a little more to see what'll give me a completely locked 60. Didn't try without VSYNC on.

Here's some screens of it.

Lifted from the EA Access thread:

i5 4670
16gb RAM
1080 GTX

Running everything at ultra at 1440p

Been playing a bit on PC, seems to freeze in prerendered cut scenes at times and I have to force close the game which is a pain in the hole.

FPS seems really random on the bridge of the Hyperion it dropped to mid 20s (during in game cut scenes) but in normal gameplay its in the 60-70 range, jumping to over 100 at times.

That's just freaking ridiculous with all the dialogue that happens... If they have 21:9 functionality and if there is a way for them to fix this then we absolutely shouldn't have to wait or depend on modders to do it for them, for us. If you get what I'm saying. That is just ridiculous. It doesn't even seem like it's that hard for modders to fix so it should be even easier for the flipping team that made the game.

I still haven't got past the beginning shooting mission and taking a break now. So it might get worse once it settles in to exploring and talking on the Nexus but so far even with all the pre release complaining of Sara Ryder I actually like her more than the videos I saw of male Ryder. Combat has a nice punchiness to it that I hope will just get better later on.
Not sure if the game will hold up the whole way through but right now at the start playing it, it feels like Mass Effect and I still like it.

Ultrawide space is best. Though I do hope there's a fix for the cutscenes to be 21:9 like Witcher 3 needed. They are almost all real time.

There was one cutscene where I dropped to 22-25fps for a tiny bit but for the most part cutscenes are running at 40+fps and gameplay is 45-60.

Awesome. Well, I guess there is still hope. I don't preorder games if I can help it and this time I can so I'm not going to. I also don't do subscription services either for moral reasons if I can help it. It's getting really hard for me not to just put a fiver down and try this out and then cancel afterwards... I know that would be the best way to see if I like the game. I'm just trying to stick to my guns here and it's killing me.

Thanks for the screens btw. I was literally just about to start begging for some.

It's crazy how we have so much material floating around that people cant stop posting more of that showcase the games flaws and yet not much at all that showcase how beautiful it can be like in your screenshots. Seriously, those are really great looking.

Have you checked the resolution scale? I think Y2kev or someone said that it could be set higher than normal off the bat for some.

Wait a minute, something isn't right here. Am I missing something? Calmine has a 1070 and is getting more fps than you are with a 1080 at the same resolution?

This is scaring me because I have pretty much the same setup as you sept I have a 6600k.

EDIT: Have you checked the resolution scale?

i5-4690k default clock and GTX 970, 16gb RAM. Pleasantly surprised with the performance so far at 1080p on high settings.

Seems to be a good 60fps, with some minor drops not in the combat sections, but with the sections on the ship talking to people.

Also the combat feels fun

edit: sorry about this, played some more. it's definitely not a smooth 60fps across the board. It feels pretty good, but it's running around 50-60.

Difference between High and Medium for me on a i7 2600k and a 970.

I also keep getting a bug where the CPU usage jumps to 90+%. Not sure what clears it but pausing, unpausing, spinning the camera, one or all of those eventually gets it back down to around 40% usage.

Also, does anyone know what the framebuffer bit means? It has a compressed 32bit or half16 64bit option.

I saw your impressions and was excited than literally have watched tons of other videos and read more because I was excited and my hype dropped a lot, saw so many flaws. Getting it in my hands changed my mind though because exploring is more fun when you're in control of it than watching other people do it, and it's the same with the combat. Sure animations deserve criticism but it's really not out of the way bad compared to the previous Mass Effects, just disappointed since hoped for better there.

This will be a pretty divisive game I think.

Yeah thought so too but also thought some others looked pretty good in that intro area. Is it possible Ultra PC settings make eyes look slightly better? Because I was really put off by them in console footage earlier like the GB stream, but when playing I wasn't distracted by them as much as I expected. Or maybe I'm just crazy...or maybe once the game opens up they start looking worse than the intro? Some others I thought looked good.





Hair is definitely still not good.

And just for people who cap their games to 30fps whether it's because of aging hardware or whatever, good news.

There isn't any weird bug that causes glitches or extra long load times by using the 1/2 refresh rate vsync option in nvidia inspector.

That gave me issues with Dragon Age Inquisition and, another engine but Dishonored 2 was unplayable if you capped it.

Maxing it out and capping it to 30fps can make it look very pretty and playable on a 970.

YMMV with the CA and Film Grain I have turned on though lol.
