    Had a look at my CPU use today, generally getting between 40-60% across all cores. Very nicely multithreaded indeed.

    Any good map recommendations? I enjoyed the Sinai Desert map in the beta but usually prefer infantry maps.

    So, BF1 directx12 mode doesn't play well with Afterburner ("Battlefield has stopped responding" on launch)... :eyebrow:

    Wow, you're not kidding! I've just had a quick go, jumping in towards the end of a round, and was immediately struck by how detailed and undulating the terrain is. I think it's going to take a while to learn but I managed to crawl away by the skin of my teeth with a 10/6 score.

    Incidentally, here's a screenie of my Afterburner graphs after my quick soiree (currently using auto settings which where "high", TAA, HBAO and I can't remember the deferred AA. Edit: there isn't a deferred AA setting).

    It held 60fps throughout and CPU usage seems comfortable so far. The CPU sat at ~44C throughout which is nice, but my 780 doesn't have much VRAM headroom though. Still, the game looked and played great and I might get away with tweaking the settings up a bit more yet.

    Edit:

    Just tried Sinai Desert for old times sake and got well & truly whooped. :D

    I just upped-it to the "Ultra" preset and disabled the "GPU memory restriction" setting and gave it another try, expecting increased VRAM usage and a drop in FPS. But nope, VRAM usage looked largely the same and the FPS still flat-lined at 60.

    It's a funny old game... :confused:
