First of all, thanks for this game, desperately waiting for fridays every week. Im a huge fan. I got a bit of a problem with my set up so i would appreciate some help and oppinions.
Thats my set up:
CPU: Intel Core i7 950 - 3,3 Ghz
Ram: 16 GB DD3 - 1333
GPU: 2 x GTX 580 - SLI (each 1536 MB)
Native Screen Res: 2560x1600
Some time ago i realized Rust experimental woulnd run smootly on my 30 Inch Display with 2560x1600 - About 20 Frames. So i decided to upgrade my machine and buy another GTX 580 for a SLI Set up. I know its not the best solution but i had this set up before - got a 1000W Power suply-high air flow case - and it was just 90 Bugs - And as well… Financial Crisis, aint got the cash to buy a 700.-€ high end card again.
Anway: Because of the second card i got a fps increase to about 50fps - 2560x1600 on fantastic.
Now, since the speedtree update - it droped down to 15fps on same specs.
Soooooooo. Here comes my question: What do you guys think would be the best to do ?
Can a huge performance increase be acpected till baseline ?
Might there be some SLI optimization ?
And if not: What´s your opinion on upgrading - keeping the setup . I dont realy like using any other than the displays native resolution, less draw distance or else. What would be needed to get steady 50 FPS - everythin on - 2560x1600 - fantastic.
Maybe keeep one 580 for Physx support ?
Get rid of both cards and invest in a new one ?
Looking forward to ready your answers.
Greets and thx for reading.
