In that modded video, you can see the fps dip below 40 at the 15min mark. I didn't play much with 3600, but only looked at a couple of places, diamond city improved massively over the 1600(I had posted its benchmarks in the previous thread), but wasn't still 60 in the marketplace, and Faneuil hall had the worst performance below 40 when looking at the fire before its entrance. Swan's pond was below 60 as well, and dipped into 40s depending on where you looked.Well in the Ryzen 5 3600 video I posted,there were parts on the top of buildings looking over Boston(it was a modded save too),and the FPS didn't seem to did so low as what you have seen. Here is another video from the same person at Ultra(medium shadows) using a Ryzen 5 3600 and a GTX1080TI in the built up part of central Boston:
So Swan's Pond and the Faneuil Hall area and they have mods nstalled.Then there are some videos of modded playthoughs using ENBs,higher resiolution textures,enhanced shadows,etc which show dips to the FPS you are talking about,but from what you are saying its just a normal install?? Is it with the 4K pack installed or not??
I am only asking since the videos I am watching online which seem to see those sub 40 FPS dips,tend to be all with mods like this one:
A Ryzen 5 3600 and a GTX1080TI,but with an ENB,6K shadow resolution,7200 shadow distance. The ENBs alone can destroy performance - from my testing you can see easily over 20000 draw calls,if you have an ENB,better textures,improved shadows,etc.
As I said, it's too bad that I can't test it with 3600 anymore, and there's the caveat that I didn't reinstall or even reset windows. The other user can test with the 3700X and 1080Ti in those places with my settings(1080p ultra with DoF turned down to low), and see whether they see similar fps or not.
I do have the high resolution texture DLC installed, though I don't think it matters much in regards with performance.
Another older game, Crysis, dipped below 60fps when you get to the famous dawn part in the first level. With 9900KF it's solid 60 again.
