I've been browsing through a few game forums and was wondering if any of you guys had a solution to the choppy frame rates that people are getting with fallout new vegas. I haven't seen any solutions other than to update the display drivers and that didn't work.
You would think that, but it's not the case. I frequent the Gamefaqs forums and there are many similar complaints. Apparently there is no issue with the radeon cards, but people with team green are having issues.
Yep, latest drivers. On those forums people with 480s were complaining about the same thing. The two big ones are turning quickly and running into npcs. Running into the npcs drops the fps into the teens. I think we are looking at a poorly coded game that needs an update quickly.

i forget what but their was a forum about fallout 3 and a quad core was not working the greatest with it, i told him to do control alt delete, processes, set affinty or whatever to just 2 of the cores see that fixes it, i know its werid but this seriously helped some other guy, if i can find the link i'll post it
They fixed the issues that were popping up with Fallout 3, but this is an issue with bad coding. According to many of the forums this frame rate issue is being caused by the NPCs eating away at memory and the CPU. My system is a Quad-Core and to make sure I'm not crazy I just ran Fallout 3 and it runs great, but New Vegas is buggy and the FPS drops to a crawl at some points, especially when talking to one of the NPCs. This is something that will have to be fixed in a patch.
I thought it was my graphics drivers initially since I was a few versions old. After an update to 10.9 and installing the new application profiles, there was no noticeable change in performance. It stays at 60fps for most of the game, but entering a town or approaching certain areas/people, it will drop into the 50's or even 40's for a while before stabilizing.
well 40's are still playable, yet i know that you have a 5970 theirs some serious optimzation problems i guess, give bethsda a couple of days i bet they have a ton of forums on their website complaing about this
