Crysis fps drop in half after reboot Tags: PC gaming Crysis FPS Video Games Last response: March 1, 2009 1:32 PM in Video Games Share Anonymous February 28, 2009 10:59:48 PM So, i recently upgraded to a monster rig and decided to try out crysis as the benchmark. much to my delight, i was averaging 40-55 fps depending on intensity of the current situation in-game. i had played for roughly 3 hours before calling it for the night, and turned off the computer. next day i fired it back up, and... 20 fps? same settings? no change in hardware/software/anything. what the hell happened? nothing i have done has restored it to its former glory. uninstalls reinstalls driver updates notta. the rest of my games are still running in all their glory, its just crysis that got the drop. im open to any ideas. rig: visiontek ati 4870hd 512mb intel i7 940 @ 3.09ghz 6gb corsair 1600mhz ram 7200rpm sata 1tb hd 650watt psu Edit: forgot to say the settings i was at, 1680x1050 resolution, all settings very high, 4x aa on. Thanks for any help. More about : crysis fps drop half reboot pat mcgroin March 1, 2009 1:32:41 PM Just a complete guess here as I run AMD but, Does the i7 use the speed step like previous Intels? Possibly that has something to do with it. The other games may not tax the system as much. Try running CPU Z and see if it offers any insight. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
