I have been having problems with stuttering FPS so I finally found this solution which seems to fix a lot of the stuttering for me.

Step 1: Go into your "My Documents" folder.
Step 2: Open "Arma 3 Alpha" folder.
Step 3: Look for the following lines in Arma3Alpha.cfg, and any other ArmA versions you have.
GPU_MaxFramesAhead=1000;
GPU_DetectedFramesAhead=3;
Step 4: Change them to:
GPU_MaxFramesAhead=1;
GPU_DetectedFramesAhead=1;
Step 5: Profit. This should dramatically help your FPS lag

Suggest you backup your original Arma3Alpha.cfg just in case.

Question is it this at the moment a ATI problem or just a certain model GFX card ?

I don't know, I don't have the same card as the guy in the video though.

i have tried. i have an old Radeon HD5570
nothing changed, FPS is same.
but its worth a try 4 others Very Happy
i have no FPS problems really, running smooth in full HD with this old videocard (must say its overlocked with factory app).

the 2 things whats my FPS made really double, are:

VIDEO OPTIONS/RENDERING/POSTPROCESSES: Disabled
and
VIDEO OPTIONS/QUALITY/CLOUD QUALITY: Low

and ofcourse the fukkin HEADBOB is OFF but its not really count.

i have 50% more FPS what i have ever made in A2. i must say this stuff is much better optimalized.

If you think your ArmA3 is acting strangely you can "verify" check your game

1. Open steam
2. Go to Library
3. Right click on Arma 3 icon
4. Select properties
5. Select LOCAL FILES tab
6. Click the bottom VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME CACHE...

Steam then checks all the A3 files on your pc & will then downloads new anything missing or corrupted. I had a problem with 1 file first time tried it. Instruction courtesy of the Zeus clan.
