DX11,12, CPU cores?

Recommended Posts

Was just curious. What are some of the tech specs of this game, such as: Does it use DX11, 12, or something else? How many cpu cores can it use? I ask this because my main system that has 8gb of ram, ssd, i5-2400 and GTX 980ti, and it struggles to keep 40fps in some ares, mostly Vainbank (sometimes between 20-35). And this is at 1080p with low settings except for medium terrain and textures. Just curious as to why a 980ti OC cant keep 60fps in this game.

 

Thanks!

New Frontier is running as a 64bit system and DX11. This engine needs GHz to run smooth. I am running the game on all of my 4 cores by 4 GHz and have 80-90 FPS in Vainbank. But I also have to say, Vainbank has a lot of lights and particles, to try out your general FPS, you should go outside of Vainbank.

Do you run your i5 on recommended or high performance?

I run the game on 2 systems, a laptop and a desktop. They both run the game pretty well, but the desktop just doesn't seem much better than the laptop, and it should be 10x better, lol. 

Laptop: i7-4710HQ at 3.3ghz, 16gb ddr3, GTX 970m and a SSD. Laptop is set to max performance and the cpu stays at at least 3.3ghz. The game runs pretty well on it with low setting except for medium terrain and textures at 1080p. I usually get 25-50fps, average of prorably 35-40. Very playable. CPU usually only gets to 50% usage at most, but gpu can get to 99%, but usually around 80% usage.

Desktop: i5-2400 at 3.4ghz, 8gb ddr3, SSD and a overclocked GTX 980ti. All set to max performance. With same game settings. It runs the game well for the most part 60fps at 1080p, but again, it drops to around 35-45 in Vainbank and at random times. Just odd that it doesnt seem a whole lot better than my laptop, and not able to set everything to Ultra. I know the cpu is older, but its still a quad core and the 980 should make up for it

Was mostly curious to see if the game actually used more than 1 core and what DX version it was.  Are you sure it is a multicore game and can utilize multiple cores? Thanks for the info!
