Actually next week I'm doing a tip on how to get an abortion so people like you don't exist.
RuperttheBear  +   1032d ago
Lol, did I hurt your feelings? I'm sorry. No that was a really good tip, and if I hadn't looked up on a few performance guides that go into detail on pretty much every graphic option in the game, then that tip would have helped.

Thanks for potentially giving me that one good tip.

Not many people know how that works. My game was running at like30 frames on full settings now it runs at 60 just because I changed that setting.

A 30 extra FPS just because of SSAO?
Thats bullshit.

5 or 10 FPS, yeah that sounds believable.

but 30? lol

Agreed, for some weird reason SSAO works better then HDAO on my ATi 6950 (Unlocked to 6970). HDAO looks better but I take a 5-10 fps performance hit. As well increasing Max frames rendered works nicely ads a bit of input lag but makes game feel smooth which is fine for SP

The "weird reason" SSAO is running smoother than HDAO for you is that SSAO is a less demanding method of ambient occlusion.

HDAO and HBAO are better looking but more demanding compared to SSAO.

Lol thats bullshit. And then he comments saying its legit with its second account. Nice website.

And no changing the SSAO setting doesnt double your frames.

definitely improves, I'm running an SLi setup, so maybe it's different, but the difference was big!
chukamachine  +   1032d ago
It improves it. By about 7fps on my comp.

But tbh, there isn't much difference between high to veryhigh to ultra. And some things like ssao in various forms are not worth the fps lost.

Seriously, if you click ultra on any game and it's 60fps or nice fps, great.

If not, check what actually takes up fps and turn it off, a lot of the time, you would not even notice it.
