[Anthem] PC low FPS and GPU usage

Re: [Anthem] PC low FPS and GPU usage

I just noticed something odd.  When in Fullscreen mode, alt-tabbing out shoots the GPU up to 100% utilization, along with a 30% jump in CPU as well.  Wouldn't it be funny if the game was accidentally throttling itself when in focus, instead of when it was backgrounded?

Lol would be funny, I know in the beta they had a fullscreens, windowed and borderless window issue for screen resolution etc. Wonder if they screwed something up when trying to fix it.

So we can try to find some commonality between your hardware/software, can you guys post your Dxiag reports here so we can take a look, thanks.

Got he exact same problem with the GPU Usage. Hits barley 50% and CPU seems to be bottleneked because of spikes to 100% Can't get over 20-30 fps in game and get usually 20-24 fps iG.

 

I had this issues also in VIP Demo and Open Demo, hope they fixed it to the Early Acess or now hopefully to Full Release.

 

And I have also the odd thing with the 100% GPU Usage when game is in tray. I run it in Full Screen mode.

 

I play on a 1080p 60 Hz Monitor

 

Specs:

 

i7 4770K 3.5 Ghz (not overclocked)

GeForce GTX 1070 TI (Standardclock)

32 GB RAM 1600 MHz

 

In all my other Games also in BF V which based on the same engine all is running pretty well and I got pretty decent fps.

 

ANTHEM ist the only game with this issue all other games on my machine work well and properly.

 

Hope we can find a solution guys or they patch it soon! Standard smile

 

Also my dxdiag Information attached here.

Don't want to spoil a fun for ya, but i've noticed that most ppl having issues with this game are those having Intel CPU with INtel's hyper-threading tech.

 

Maybe theres the problem?

 

Im sitting at amd ryzen 2600x no issues. CPU max load at 50-55%.

Gpu sits at 80% stable ~80 fps on ultra 1080p

On somelocations I get like 110. In combat mostly 70 fps

Seems like a lot of issues with i7s and Nvidia cards.

 

Having extremely similar issues on the following; 

i7-4770K @ 4.1GHz

16GB DDR3 RAM

RTX2070

 

Sometimes during missions, the game experiences spikes to 100% CPU or GPU usage at random, though the GPU/CPU are usually not stressed over 60-80% each, resulting in drops to under 50fps (The couple of times I caught CPU specifically spiking, it seemed to be only using physical cores 0 and 2 @ 100%, and only ~1% on core 1 and 3).

 

Staring through the market from the 'Forge/launch' menu area, there is quite literally 0fps difference between 720p low and 1440p ultra settings; both of which will not push 60fps from that particular angle. From what I can tell, lowering the resolution is just causing the GPU to downclock itself as well as pushing the utilisation down. (~1700MHz @ 720p and ~1900MHz @ 1440p). This is all in fullscreen mode, as windowed either makes no difference or sometimes performs slightly worse. The main hub seems to produce some of the lowest FPS in the game, despite the lack of things that should be stressing the CPU.

 

Frame pacing in general seems off even when the game's rarely sitting ~90fps. 

 

DXDiag info attached. Will be able to test the 2070 paired with a 9600k in a week or so, and will report back if these issues are still occurring. Game could be favouring clockspeeds.

Its not hyperthreading, I tried it with it disabled, still the same problem.
