# 1 Bloom FPS drop
11-15-2012, 01:40 AM
Anyone noticed a big FPS drop when bloom is set to high (compared with pre-season 7)? I get a 30 --> 20 FPS drop with 4xAA and pretty much everything else on max.

I have noticed this as well! About 10 fps difference for me since the S7 launch....

I have approximately -10fps in all game areas as well.....but mine had something to do with ambient occlusion for shadows....bloom didn't effect my fps by much.

I messed with direct x 11 and 9 settings and when in dx11 mode it dropped by 5-8fps in that mode (other settings I messed with at that time (other than bloom of course) were fullscreen vs windowed maximised. Also with one of them I get 100% of my gpu being utilized (as opposed to 70-90%) so I think is fine now (as in not a horrible drop considering bloom isn't really a light rendering aspect). Cryptic must of updated the bloom quality, I think I noticed somewhat of a change anyway.

I've always had a huge frame rate drop on maps with the large white blooms. Especially the Mirror Universe incursion maps (although I read somewhere that the blooms were removed from that map finally).


This goes back to before Season 7. I just think that Season 7 introduced more maps that include these kinds of video card killing blooms.

This thread never had anything to do with the white blobs in certain maps, just general bloom throughout the game (e.g. sector space, ESD etc).
