JimboUK Posted February 8, 2017 Share Posted February 8, 2017 Has anyone tried the development branch recently? (Since December) NOTE: Doing this will mean you can't connect to AW so only do it if you want to download 10GB of updates, then another 10GB to revert back. The 64-bit version of Arma3 makes a huge difference on my setup. I made a few tweaks as per this guide: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=385577681 and then installed the development branch to see what difference 64-bit would make. And, wow, what a difference. My game went from 30-40fps to 80fps. I wasn't sure at first whether the difference was due to the tweaks I made as per the above link or the dev branch, but after reverting back so that I could play online (and keeping the tweaks) my framerate dropped again. My setup: Intel i7 4790K 2 x GTX970 (SLI) 16GB RAM I think the main improvement is due to the game being allocated 12GB of system memory and 8GB of Video RAM. Everything was so smooth, even though I'm on a 60hz monitor, so with framerate 'to spare' I re-enabled VSync too which gives a nicer feel as well. Does anyone know when the 64-bit version is due to go live? Also, are there any benchmarking tools I can run within/alongside Arma to more scientifically record this?
