Wow, why did this become about RAMdisk? Lol.
All I want is for ArmA 3 to run about as good as ArmA 2 with better graphics. That means there should be some optimization, and more utilization of my hardware. When I am getting like 50% CPU usage and 30% GPU usage, and like 15-20 FPS, there is a problem.
Also, for what it's worth, I've done quite a bit of testing with RAMdisk vs. SSD, and SSD actually gave me a smoother experience overall.
Core i7 920 @ 3.995 GHz, HT off
12 GB OCZ DDR3-1600
Galaxy GTX 680 (light overclock)
Samsung 830 Series 256 GB SSD
Windows 7 Pro x64
1920x1080 w/ View Distance at ~3600
Video Memory at Default
MSAA Very High, AToC=0, SMAA Ultra
Post Processing at Very Low
All other settings at Very High
Just a question, I'm hearing 50 50 down the line, are we looking at the same low FPS as with arma 2. O and maverick quick question, would upgrading my 560 ti to 680 boost my frames or is it a waste since arma is demanding on cpu? I'm running the I5 2500 k oc 4.5, just wanting your opinion.
Also, I'm not sure if you have the 1 GB or 2 GB version of the 560 Ti, but if you have the 1 GB then it would be an upgrade to get the 2 GB of the 680 as well.
As for ArmA3, no one can really judge, even with the E3 videos really, till the community alpha it's and we can get 'some' idea of what the performance is gonna be like. However making the jump from a 560ti to a 680 if you have the money, isn't a bad idea if your gonna make good use of it. I'd have a hard time believing someone wouldn't get a decent boost in performance from such a change, in any game.

About the topic itself;
Guys, expect that A3 will run like crap and will be in dire need of optimization, just like A2 did (and for some still does) and you won't be disappointed when A3 is out. Expect the worse, hope for the best.
