Thread: Battlefield 3 Performance Graph

    Battlefield 3 Performance Graph

    To enable this, you need 2 commands:
    render.PerfOverlayEnabled 1
    render.PerfOverlayVisible 1

    For more information about what the graph shows, see this thread on the EA Forums

    It basically says, if the yellow line is above the green line then your CPU is bottlenecking your GPU and that for a steady framerate, the lines should be as flat as possible and very close to each other. Also the higher up on the graph the line goes, the lower the FPS you have.

    So. My performance in beta was good, but now its not so much so. Here's a pic of my graph playing a ~20 player TDM

    I hope someone else is as confused as I am given my system specs which are:
    Gigabyte GA-X58-USB3
    i7 950 @ 4.0 GHz (With HyperThreading enabled)
    6 GB XMS3
    ATI/XFX HD 5850
    and an old OCZ Apex solid state drive

    Apologies for the fail picture, Couldn't find the Screenshot button and couldn't be bothered load fraps as tabbing out would of effected the graph

    I think it might be useful if people could post this graph from different CPU/GPU combos so we can see which work best with the game.

    i fixed my issues by :

    Flashing my BIOS

    my setup:
    Intel I7 920
    Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5
    12GB of OCZ Ram
    ATI 6970

    i was experiencing this:

    so i checked my BIOS which still had original firmware, and when i came up to a list of fixed with new BIOS i just tried my luck,
    it worked, my lag/rubber banding is totally gone no disabling hyperthreading or anything,

    i even have easytune running which boostst my CPU to a 965+

    to easily flash your BIOS in windows, you can use this application:
