Bought ARMA 3 a few days ago, spent most of my time trying to find solutions to fix the framerate(i5 + R9 380). In towns I was never able to go over 25-27 fps( in multiplayer). Ended up asking for a refund.
Wondering what kind of rig all these people playing ARMA have
Arma is interesting when it comes to optimizing. I just picked up a 1080 GTX and still can't run the thing fully maxed out on even just 1920x1080 (I usually play 5760x1080). There's some forum posts out there that show which settings help the most. There's also launch parameters that you can adjust for CPU Cores, VRAM usage and some other things that helped me in the past. It's kind of a pain but once you get it right, it should run pretty good. I can finally get close to 60 fps with most of the settings pretty high or max but even before with the 980 GTX, I was getting 40-45 average with things on medium-high. I have a i7 3770k @4.0GHZ and 16GB RAM.
