Will Crowfall support SLI/Crossfire (Dual video cards)?

I can't see why it would need to, this game doesn't look like it will require much power. As Eren said, I believe U5 already has native support for it too :)

I hope so because I have dual 750M's in my laptop.

Most mmorpgs are CPU bound. While having dual cards will help, you won't see the same performance boosts you would in other games.

Not sure what you mean by CPU bound and I'm an IT engineer. You mean that you think the processor is going to be the limiting factor? It isn't.

What is IT engineer

I make engines out of it.

 

Wait so do you build game engines like an engine engineer? Or just built IT infrastructure for a said system? I'm lost :S

From my understanding and the way Hartman (the CEO of trion kind of eludes to) when it comes to mmos a lot of the workload is shifted off of the gpu on to the CPU. Thus having 3 290x will help, but most likely not as much as you think it would.

I'm sure there is a more technical explanation some where.

 

I read some where that dx12 and unity 5 help with this tho.

Read and read and read and found so many different people saying so many different things at the end of the day I stand by what I said -processor is only going to be an issue if you have a very old processor. The video card is going to have a more visible effect for the vast majority of systems.

I've actually seen this in action. In arch age or wildstar for example. 100 fps outside in the wilderness, and a huge drop off soon as players start to appear. I've seen my CPU usage spike and my GPU usage fall during this too. Tested on both an amd 295x2 and an nvidia equiv. I've gotten more of a performance boost in these games by overclocking than by buying two new cards.

 

In contrast to those games, I'm usually rocking 80+ fps in witcher 3 in the most highly demanding areas.

 

Is there other factors to consider? Sure. Optimization is a huge factor. However there is a whole lot more going on when I'm getting 35 fps in wildpoorly made socks with it's teenybopper graphics and 80+ in witcher on ultra.

 

 

Btw I'm a super IT specialist super engineer and I work at alien 51 with Intel, bill gates and the greys. So you have to take what I say as absolute fact.

Well hell, now that i know you're a SISSE (Super IT Specialist Super Engineer)  i'll have to listen to you. Can you also tell me how to unwind folder redirection policy without using the local redirection method because it sucks.....

 

For the record I haven't found this to be true in my personal experience which leads me to believe that there is a threshold which once surpassed causes this to be a non-factor. If i'm running a 2.4 GHZ Haswell (4700 series) which turbo  boosts to 3.4 GHZ and my fiancé is running a 3770k running at 3.4 GHZ which turbo boosts to 3.9GHZ (Yes i realize there's a generational difference) then in theory performance should be fairly similar- right?  She has one 650 series nvidia card i have 2 750 series nvidia cards- I get better frames than her in every single game we play. I understand all the gibberish about Haswell having a faster graphics core, and I also understand that the architecture  itself is 20%ish faster. We're both running 1920x1080.  

 

 

Just out of curiosity, what's your rig?

Have you tried turning it off and back on again? That always works for me. If that don't work then smack it around for awhile, cause it's obviously disrespecting you.

I7 4970k @ 4.6,

AMD Raedon 295x2

1000watt EVGA SUpernova Platnium

Asus z97-pro

Corsair 900d case (way over kill)

8gb hyper x beast 2400Mhz

1 samsung 840 512mb pro

2 other ssd

1 tv hdd

Corsair h105 cooler

I did what you said but folder redirection just spit in my eyes then pooped on me.

 

Cost of your rig > cost of my rig x 3

 

Why so little ram in such a high end system?

I kinda cheaper out there, I might get another 8 in a little bit here.
