I recently bought Farcry 3 and love it. I max out the graphics on all my games because I like stunning visuals and I think my system can handle it (in my sig). However, everything maxed in Farcry makes my experience a little less than smooth. It gets a little choppy from time to time and movements seem to lag behind the mouse a little. Is this one of those bleeding edge games that can't be maxed out on current gen hardware, much like Crysis? Or is it maybe a driver issue? I have the latest from NVidia 310.90.
Your issues are most likekly caused by shadow rendering & Anisotropic filtering. There are know performance issues within these modules. The resolution for this particular problem is actually resolved on the hardware manufacturer side. It is unlikely the Farcry 3 team with resolve these.
Both nVidia & ATI have identified there are rendering & performance issues with Farcry 3.
To combat these issues both nVidia & ATI have released a beta driver with huge (up to 25%) Farcry 3 improvements... You must use the beta drivers to realize this benefit.
For exmaple I have 2 ATI cards and once I upgraded to the beta driver all my visual issues went away.
In Addition, just out of interest it has been inferred that these issues are caused by poor optimization. Many people agree with this sentiment so just in case keep your game updated.
Give it a go and report back.
