Hey guys, I want to see what FPS and performance people have been getting on Far Cry 3 on the GTX660M. Im thinking about buying it but i want some first hand opinions on people that actually have it.

I've played the first 2 hours on High with pretty good FPS. Does anyone know a way to make the mouse move faster through the menus without gearing the graphics down? It's the only way I've found so far =/

Depends on which laptop you're playing it on. For the G75s native res is 1920x1080 so it's more taxing on your system than if you were to play it on a G55.

I have a G75VW-DS72 with the 670M, and Farcry 3 does not perform well with DX11 (~25FPS) at native res. But on High settings in DX9 the game runs at 60 FPS most of the time (FPS dips occasionally even though nothing heavy is being rendered, everyone has this problem). I expect things to run better overall when Nvidia rolls out some beta drivers, or if Ubisoft patches Farcry 3 further.

Also keep in mind that Farcry 3 is tailored for AMD hardware. From what I hear AMD GPUs get better performance overall in many areas.

High stable at 60 FPS but random drops in cutscenes (i don't know why), reccomended ultra but i like keeping my 60 FPS stable. Non-Overclocked btw

Kuudo, my 660M Plays it fine on DX11, have you downladed the latest beta drivers made specifically for Farcry 3?
