Hi everyone!

PC specs:

CPU: i7 2600K (overclocked 4.5ghz)
Motherboard: g1.sniper2
Graphics card: GTX 580 superoverclock edition x 2 (SLI)
Powersupply: corsair 1050hx

Just a bit of a ponder...I've been testing battlefield 3 with all sorts of settings in the nividea control panel. So far I have achieved max graphcs with a 60fps lock (vsynch) for silky smoothness.

Here's the problem: With ambient occlusion enabled I notice that somtimes certain objects, be it the rocks in the distance or a wall, will cause some stuttering but my FPS is still locked at 60fps. When I disable Ambient occlusion the stuttering appears to have completely gone.

I was just wondering if anyone else has this same issue of ambient occlusion not causing lag but rather stuttering...and therefore hopefully it's EA issue and battlefield 3 needing to patch that issue.

Oh and furthermore, ambient occlusion enabled seems to be the culprit for me whenever I disconnect from the server (drop outs, timeouts etc...), whenever it's off, I never D/C...weird.

-Oops! I should mention, I have already disabled Hyper Threading which improved 'overall' stuttering issues, however it is now just certain objects that will cause it from time to time.

Thanks!!!

on bad company 2 ambient oclussion messed with textures and performance for me as well. As for BF3, i don't have it yet. I don't see your hard drive or SSD being affected solely by ambient occlusion though. Seems like a driver or game software issue to me.

I assume that with Rig specs like yours that you have enough RAM for high quality game settings. PSU specs at least 850 watts?

Hyperthreading was def. a big cause of stutter for me too.

Have you had this issue with Bad company 2?
