hi there everyone first let me give the specs... cpu:intel pentium dual core e5300 @ 3.25 ghz
gpu:XFX ati radeon HD 5670 1gb gddr5
ram:2gb ddr2 800
os :windows 7 32 bit
okay now i have read one of the posts on the Tom's forum to patch the game .. did it but stil lags? and i am running it at the stock resolution set by the game..
anyone knows wat the problem can be?
Thanx in advance..
Your cpu is weak that is why it will always lag. Problem with today's game like black ops they intentionally make it higher on graphic's demand so that we are force to upgrade our system to match their recommended requirements. If you had a quadcore or core2duo with the same speed as 3.0 plus a higher L2 cache it would have been different.
We have very similar systems, you got a little up on me right now. I've never seen a game use over 1gb of system memory. Now, I haven't played Crysis or some of those other beasts out there, but COD-BO demands a ton from your system.
When you turn the settings up, you are asking the GPU to do more of the work, and the CPU to do less. I have the exact same success when I turn up the AA and even the graphics detail.
This game has the same issue as some of the CS versions before Source. When players enter the field of view, you get HUGE FPS drops. Now, to explain all the reasons why, I can't. I'm not that smart. I just know it happens.
For example, on NORMAL settings, low AA.... When I spawn on Nuketown, i'm getting about 110 fps. When 1 person enters my field of vision, it drops to 70-80. 2 makes it drop down to 50-60. 3... I'm in the 40 fps toilet.
Is it the game or is it that I need a much higher-end system??? Don't know. However, it's this game that is making me build a new system. I don't run at high resolutions, I don't need max settings. I want high FPS with no lag. That's what I grew up playing, that's what I want to play.
So....Venjhammet is right, for me anyway. This game is making me spend about $700 on new parts to build a much-upgraded system. However, they keep this stuff up, i'm buying a 360 and i'll learn to play with my thumbs :-)
hey random hero do you have the same gpu as me? if you have i would only recommend that you upgrade to a quad and a 5770 if that doesnt keep up for a while take the 360... it is funny how they say we do know a bit less of pc's but still the unthinkable things kinda fixes it(kinda) lol but now i actuall realise that i only have to upgrade my cpu .. altough i can see that my gpu is doing a decent job..
All I can say is this. WHEN I get my system up and running where I think it can run... 3.8ghz quad core, 460 GTX 1gb in a true x16 PCIe 2.0 slot, 4gb 1333mhz ram, and only trying for 1280x1024 res...AND IT STILL LAGS, then I give up.
it lags cos of the game, not ur pc, its the same engine as MW2. theres seems to be a huge memory leak with teh game, and spiking of CPU usage, i still run at 30 FPS average, but i used to run at least 60 on MW2...
