GTX 470 lags in Final Fantasy XI Still great card in other games.
  1 / 131    
Hello! New to the forums and I hope I posted this topic in the right place :P

Got my Gigabyte GTX 470 card today that I replaced my GT 240 budget card with and was eager to start testing it out.
"Battlefield: Bad Company 2" ran 1080 rez and high settings np :D. Ran "Just Cause 2" also beautifully.
I then started the somewhat older game "Final Fantasy XI" (yes I play that :P I like it) and I was shocked to see that as soon as only a couple of people started popping around me the FPS dropped drasticly!
Situations where my much older cards back in the old 7000-series even out-preformed the GTX 470 hands down. What's the cause of this? Could it be driver issues? Is there a fix for this in the works? Or am I the first to notice?

I tried searching all night for people with remotely the same issues as I but the card seem to be too new for that to have popped up (yet).

Thx for any help I might get :)


-------------------------------

As of January 4, 2011 the beta drivers (266.35) HAVE solved this issue, to a great extent making it more then playable once again. Better late then never :) thx Nvidia

check to see if you have a profile for that game in nvidia control panel. maybe some settings are forced? try changing it to "let application decide"

From what I seen and read the 480 cards has a problem with some older games. I seen a review that it showed older games being played with higher FPS than the 480/470's. might be a sharder issue in older games just a guess mind you....CHEERS

this'll be a shot in the dark....how about going down that list and changing every one to "application-controlled" ? then go back into FF and edit the options in game.

The defult settings was pretty much alrdy set at "application-controlled". So, no change. :(

I'll pass it on to the driver team but before I do, can you please tell me if you are using driver version 197.41?
