Bought Arma 3 just for this mod, pls fix. ;_;

Use Fraps/Dxtory or MSI Afterburner to display FPS.
Probably you have vsync disabled and the gpu is rendering like 100-200 fps in menu, which makes it overheat.
Just enable vsync in options.
Ok i have added files from C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\Arma 3 Alpha\ and dxdiag.
You expected they will say something else?
Also there was some kind of blog with detailed explanation mentioned over 2 weeks ago, and still nothing.
You mean they have alot optimizations in changelog, i didn't feel any improvement in terms of performance in Beta.
Now test it on populated MP server, we dont have issues with SP if you missed the point.
This is so embarassing, for BiS and moderators.
Just look at this, this doesn't even need any further comment.
Basically the game is broken performance wise, so they are closing every single thread about it probably in fear of losing sales.
So where we can discuss this biggest issue in the game right now, if not here and not on the forums either?
Unfortunately i have similiar feelings as white, and closing all threads about performance issues and throwing bans/warning towards users that create them on the forums is just out of my imagination.
Yeah. Lets close a thread about biggest issue in the game, good move BIS.
Now also delete it, maybe nobody will notice.
It does nothing, game autodetect those settings.
I never had issues in editor, so i dont see point testing that.
Also this is Multiplayer focused game.
Screenshot from latest dev build. (visual/object draw distance 1200/700)
I guess still nothing has been fixed?
Phenom II 965 @4Ghz
HD7850 2GB overclocked
There was optimization patch? As stated above nothing has changed for me past the month in terms of performance.
I'd take it you're alone on the map and probably in Editor?
Now post such results from same location at populated multiplayer server (40+) or with 40+ AI fighting around.
Arma 3 is not single player game and such tests are pointless.
I guess we are not getting any reply / information regarding this issue from a developer any time soon?
It would be relief to know if this is actually being adressed, as it's still not mentioned in latest SITREP or "know isssues" list.
I think they had enough of feedack on this.. let's see what happens.
Yeah i noticed too.
CPU usage 70-80% on all cores, gpu usage 99% and it took me 2minutes to get the result, you can easily expect 99% gpu usage and about 90% cpu usage across all cores in certain situations
Oh and the game is not even in Alpha yet, and the same apply for most games out there.
Some developer answer here would be really appreciated i guess... We dont need ETA's etc. just simple ackowledgement because if someone looks there http://alpha.arma3.com/sitrep-001 one could think Arma3 has no performance issues.
Also would be nice to add this issue in http://alpha.arma3.com/known-issues
For now, there is no single developer reply here, and it's probably 1 of the biggest threads on Arma3 feedback tracker and it's kinda troubling.
Anyway i still have faith, as the game is amazing and it keeps me entertained even with 15-20 fps.. (but over time it's tiresome / frustrating)
There was response on forums.. http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?147533-Low-CPU-utilization-amp-Low-FPS&p=2320137&viewfull=1#post2320137
"We are very happy on the other side to read the many positive reports regarding performance and the fluidity of movement, and the Alpha in general."
Not quite promising.
Do you even realize that AMD GPU's cannot be used for Physx?
Also AFAIK in Arma3 all kind of Physx is calculated by CPU (even if you have Nvidia GPU)
Except it's not a problem with GPU...
He probably tested it in Editor or infantry showcase. (or just trolling)
For the lazy: Turn VSYNC ON.
Such reports are pointless, for us it works fine too in certain scenarios.
Try to testing it in Multiplayer wits lots of players / ai or the helicopter showcase mission.
And you dont have AMD CPU.
Maybe it's issue with Physx since AMD CPU's are weaker and if you have AMD GPU they also have to calculate physx.
Is there any way to turn off physx to test this?
If you want to fix it, just delete the save file from C:\users\<user>\documents\arma 3 alpha\saved\a3\missions_f\showcases\showcase_infantry.stratis\
