I’m wondering if this is normal behavior. 3.5gb usage just seems so high when the recommended is only 2gb. I am currently getting about 40-45 average FPS; everything is set to very high w/ SMAA 1TX @1080p. My computer exceeds the recommended specs for the game and it’s really confusing me why I am having a hard time getting 60 frames, when I should be able to run this game no problem. I can run Shadows of Mordor 60fps on ultra (no 4k texture pack).
Are the recommended specs wrong? Does this game have a problem with 8-core CPU’s? Is anybody else having this problem? Heat is not an issue and CPU usage is normal. I figure if it was a CPU issue my load would be much higher but all I’m seeing is maxed out VRAM with GPU and CPU usage at around 60%.
Another issue I’ve been having is when I go to set my graphics through the Geforce Experience app it is recommending I turn all my graphics to low, which I know isn’t right, and fails to even find my graphics settings saying “Geforce Experience unable to retrieve all current settings”. Restarting the game and changing the setting fails to do anything and I am unable to optimize my game. This issue was fixed by doing a full re-install of the latest 347.52 WHQL Drivers and Geforce Experience app.
My specs: GTX 970 (3.5gb vram) ~ FX-8320 ~ 8GB ram ~ no overclock.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
EDIT: Any information on how much VRAM this game uses on max graphics would be very helpful. if I could get some of you to tell me what your VRAM usage on max is, that would be amazing!
