Guys my problem still is here.
Is your HDD really full? Is your HDD a old 500gb or 250gb relic? What SSD do you have?
You run in a window? Window mode almost always lowers your clock speeds and usage of CPU and CPU.
In your Nv 3Dsettings/control panel all the setting are off? or at med/quality, NOT high quality? No sneaky "Global" setting adding filters to your ARMA2 profile? Have you looked at your ARMA2 profile that comes default with your Nv drivers?
Do you use the OA Betas? or are you on 1.62.. Does DayZ us ATOC? Or is that a OA only feature?
In all of this you haven't given any Info on your CPU usage?
"-cpucount=6 -exThreads=7" A2 only uses 4 cores. Some posters have had better success with cpu count 3,(because some SW will(in 2D mode/desktop)lower all the cores speed down when using 4 cores.Also is your Turbo mode on?
Do you have your "Onboard GPU" on? or is it off in the bios? Do you use any Gigabyte software, like the easytune?
did you fall back to the 209.xx driver.
51% Usage or 15% usage ? maybe its waiting on the CPU, which is waiting on the HDD?
If I had to hazard a guess, your running in a window with power saving settings on and losing focus when typing in TS. AND your HDD isnt upto the task, and even tho you did use a RAMDISK it can and does still get put into Cache on the HDD if certain options are on, and you really want all the right pbos in RAMDISK.

My HDD has ~120GB free, it's a Seagate Barracuda 7200 500MB Sata 2, around 2 years old now i believe
No windowed mode, but when i start my game on the beta patch it keeps putting me in it so i have to take it off, how do i prevent this?
It's set to prefer max performance etc
I have ATOC set to trees and grass i think
Ill try using 3 cores with 7 threads, i believe turbo is on.
I think my onboard gpu is off i believe, it's not in my device manager anymore. - Not sure what easytune is.
I tried going back on my drivers, didnt change anything.
Window mode on start up is most likely due to a Profile being loaded.
Mess with this app "NvInspector" http://downloads.guru3d.com/NVIDIA-I...load-2612.html
Easytune is Gigabyte's software. If you had installed that, it could be loading up at windows with some powersaving profile.
ATOC disabled will give you more FPS.
In the MotherBoards BIOs set all the power type savings to off, make sure your CPU isnt lowering its self. See if you can set it to a small OC . Turbo is usually only for one core so when Turbo is engaged it can reduce the power to other cores...?
There has been reported issues with video cards running at 4X speed in there 16X speed slots... Nvida , it would be nice to rule that out.
When you test, is it only in MP on a Dayz server?. It would be good to go into the editor (go to single player options, choose editor, dbl click anywhere on the map, hit the preview button. check your frames set your settings.).I use Elektrozavodsk about a block north of the docks for my Cherno test. if I can get playable frames there, I can play anywhere on the map.
I was testing on a dayz server with people in, heres with doing what you said.
Max settings, (all on very high) in cherno i get: around 15FPS with 20% usage
^^ in NW airfield i get around 25-30FPS constant with 30-35% usage
Needless to say it was alot smoother and even if i only had 15fps it lagged so much less.
Pretty surprised this thread is going for so long. Just lower the cpu heavy settings. Model detail and viewdistance are the biggest killers, shadows should be high or off (low-normal is cpu shadows).
anyway, run the benchmark missions (bench 1 and e08), post the results and your settings so we can compare.
