This is why I like cheaper and older GPUs. They simply CAN run the new games at a decent framerate and a decent settings. Hell, I ran Dark Souls 3 with my R7 370 at max settings 50fps 1080p. Rise of the Tomb Raider at High went around 50ish fps as well. But then again, I’m one of the few people out there who played almost their entire life on PowerPoint framerate so I don’t mind playing games on 30 fps or even lower.
Katsuo My 7950 is still going strong. Aiming for 30fps nowadays rather than 60 but I’m totally fine with that.
MyLifeForAiur That GPU is even stronger than mine haha
Katsuo My only issue with my GPU is Direct X 12 seems to destroy the thing. Forza Horizon 3 runs like shit and the new Hitman in Direct X 12 mode makes me lose about 15fps compared to Direct X 11 with the same settings.
MyLifeForAiur Same goes for me. Rise of the Tomb Raider destroys my GPU in DX12. I lose 20 fps but the game definitely kinda feels better when DX12 is turned on. The only issue I have with my GPU are the green lines that are appearing in certain games. It’s kinda annoying.
Forza Horizon 3 is a game that looks so damn good. I’m pretty sure it does a huge punch even to the newer cards.
MyLifeForAiur Eww a game that is “optimized” for new GPUs. I don’t like that.
Katsuo Yeah its brutally rough for me. Makes me want to upgrade but most games are still totally fine so I won’t.
MyLifeForAiur I just played the dirty copy of Call of Duty IW and my GPU is running the game 45-60 fps everything maxed out except I think shadow quality which is set to normal. I have a feeling that I’ll be using this GPU for quite a long time lol
I love cheap and old GPUsssssssss. #neverupgrade
What’s funny is some games run worse for me in DX12 too…
ShiftySatchmo I have a feeling that DX12 isn’t quite a “finished product”. I’d rather Vulkan to switch places with DX.
ShiftySatchmo Katsuo I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one with DX12 struggles. Not to say I’m glad you guys struggle with it as well just that we are in it together ;).
MyLifeForAiur Shhhh we know that you like when we are struggling in general not just in DX12. You hate us!
Katsuo You got me!!! :o but don’t take it personally I hate most things ;).
Your hate reminded me of this song. Sometimes it is really a good thing to hate. You remember some good songs lul
Katsuo Great song. I’ve been listening to nothing but Meshuggah lately.
MyLifeForAiur Did they released a new album or something? I haven’t heard anything new from them lately.
Katsuo Yeah like a month ago at this point.
MyLifeForAiur I guess it’s Meshuggah time today then
