    I had my GTX 670 and in D3. The fps was around 100. but when I play it today. it changed to around 60. and whatever the setting of the graphic is high or low. the fps stay the same. I am wondering if there is anything wrong of it?

    What the Card, no. Try this, very accurate. It could mean the Card has reached a rendering ceiling, IE the age of the game. Or it could be that the reading is false. Lowering the Gfx settings should result in a net profit of FPS. The less instructions, do not stress the Card as full levels would, meaning throughput increases and with less energy. What game are you playing?

    Sounds like VSync is enabled? Try disabling it in the game's graphic options and/or in your GPU control panel...or just leave it alone since 60 fps is plenty smooth.

    Don't worry, I'm sure your 670 is laughing at the game's GPU requirements.

    He's playing Diablo3, as it says in the thread title...

    OP: Either the graphical load has changed (perhaps a CPU bottleneck caused by more monsters on screen?) or you've turned on Vsync.

    This is my thought. I, too, get an average of 60 FPS and I do, almost always, turn on V-Sync to avoid screen tearing.

    Right click your desktop, select NVIDIA Control Panel, go into Manage 3D Settings, scan to the bottom of the options, under vertical sync choose "Off".

    Go into the game, make sure in the display options that V-Sync is off too.

    See if that helps.

    so that is what V-sync does.. is there a way to set a 'ceiling' as well?

    As I understand it, vsync makes sure that your framerate is a factor of your refresh rate, presuming a refresh rate of 60. This prevents tearing, but can give the appearance of stuttering at lower FPS. Many games do allow you to set a ceiling in the console. Obviously this does not have the same anti-tearing effects.

    What details are you running at? Do you have anything going in the background? What is it that makes the FPS drop?

    Here are TH results for the game:

    Your card is faster than the GTX580.

    Ignore the erroneous labelling of the i7. Your CPU is faster than anything on there.

    So this really shouldn't be a punishing game for your system at any reasonable settings.

    why the need for over 60fps..... your monitor can't produce it.... it unnecessary for the most part.. introduces tearing usually...

    In fairness Judas, the few games I've played at a decent standard over the years, I've felt that there's a noticeable advantage in 120FPS vs. 60FPS if you can get 120FPS solid.

    oh there is always advantages to higher FPS... if you can keep it stable.

    But typically i see a lot of people claiming to get say 90 or 100fps solid all the time and when they try to reproduce the results... they show dips into the 45 range thinking it's fine. Not sure how they don't see that happening.

    I'll take 60fps rock solid over occasional 120fps and dips into the 30's any day.
