Hey im having this frame rate problem recently
where normally it doensn't occur until the last few days.
The symptoms are tremendous drop in framerate in many games
ex. RE5 a couple of month ago i becnhmark it and acheive 60-75 FPS not bad..
on max setting with AA + blur
but now with the same setting it drop to around 20-35 badd..
surprisingly this problem also occur in crysis warhead
where i use to be able to run it on max setting with no stuttering , lagging
or delaying (only alittle bit in some epic boss fight) but now fps drop to 15-30
since the start of the game when only 1-2 enemies appear.
In l4d2 with vsync turn off and multi redering off aswell i only get about 40-70 FPS
which is strange .. i think.. as it should be much higher according to my spec
not all of my game have this issues but most have.
here's my spec:
CPU: intel core i5 2.67
GPU: Ati 4890
Ram: 4 GB
Window: vista 32
fan olympia 700W
i have no idea what's the problem but im suspicious that the problem is burried deep.
i dont know if this is normal but.. my physical memory is at 40 percent all the time even i didn't run anything atall but maybe its vista well...
here's some things i already tried
upgrade driver to 9.11 newest!
install lastet directX
tweak some option in ATi catalyst turning off AA , etc...
(which seem to bring the fps up abit)
some one suggest that i should reinstall my window oh and metion something about the voltage but im not pro at this so..
any idea or suggestion would be good. i would appreciate it. im not so good at this kind of thing i usually play them not fix them.. i certainly need help
