Does DCSW still have problems with ATI (AMD) Videocards?


Recommended Posts

I am thinking of upgrading my current videocard (nVidia GTX 760) to either nVidia 1060 or ATI (AMD) RX 480, however, prior to EDGE, ATI cards suffered greatly in DCSW. Has this problem been solved now with EDGE?

 

And secondly, how much VRAM can DCSW utilize, if playing on 1920x1080 resolution?

I run a R9 295x2 and have never had any problems with DCSW over the last three years with any version.

1920X1080.

 

To me, ATI cards "suffer greatly" does not compute.

 

System is in Spoiler.

Gloom Demon,

 

once you have that new card, please tell us what you think about Ryzen and DCS !

 

Everyone in here is eager to hear how it performs and your 1920x1080 is a perfect scenario for everybody.

Evidence or source for this? I never had trouble with my old AMD gpu.

 

P.S. ATI hasn't existed for a very long time.;)

This is surprising - how fast people forget :-)

 

Here are a couple of links I found:

As far as I recall, the problem was due to the fact, that AMD cards where geared up for providing more support to DirectX 11 (or 10, maybe) while nVidia provided more even support for legacy DirectX versions. Since, at that time, DCSW worked on DirectX 9, AMD cards failed to deliver, while nVidia provided the expected framerates. This is one of the problems EDGE was supposed to solve, since it works on DirectX 11. At least this is my understanding of what was explained by the moderators.

 

I am not trying to start a holy war or anything - just trying to figure out if with the advent of EDGE it matters whether you run nVidia or AMD.

When I just started playing DCS, I was still running a 5870. I can't remember ever having trouble with it. Only the particles were rendered differently on amd cards, which resulted in less dense smoke IIRC.

When the gtx970 came out I immediately switched to that though, so it is some time ago.
