Arma 3 FPS bouncing and stuttering.
Ok,so,when I downloaded arma 3 last night it worked perfectly,and the graphics were brilliant ect. But tonight,I am facing FPS and stuttering issues. At first I get 30-65 FPS and then after a couple of minutes I get 14 FPS. Then 15 seconds later,it returns to 60 FPS and repeats the process over again. Even when I change the settings to low it dosent make a difference.

My specs are:

4GB ram
GTX 460 1GB
AMD phenom X4 955 @ 3.20GHZ

Any help at all is appreciated.

Same problem. I have noticed it depends on the server though. But no matter what server I end up on, even if I'm getting decent FPS it will freeze for about 15 seconds every 10 minutes or so.

Set in "Arma3Alpha.cfg"
under (C: \ Users \ .......... \ Documents \ Arma 3 alpha)
value GPU_MaxFramesAhead = 1000, 1 to
This should improve the FPS a little bit!

Most servers in Arma 3 are private servers with enough processing power. This can be seen when more than 25-30 players online are on the same server then the FPS to their knees!

Hello everyone
I keep this brief, I have a decent gaming computer and I can play most games on full graphics but when it comes to arma 3 my fps drops dramatically. However I have found a solution that does not effect graphics, while DRAMATICALLY boosting performance.

Youtube this video:
Arma 3 fps/graphic performance FIX

or use the link:

This little fix does not need to be done every time, but the video says it does.
This fix made my arma 3 go from low graphics and poor fps (arount 10) to Nearly MAX graphics at 40-60 fps.

Hope this helped the arma 3 gamers out there trying to fix there performance.
Cheers everyone.
