Low FPS on Skyrim, with higher end hardware! Tags: PC gaming Low FPS Skyrim Video Games Last response: September 8, 2012 6:50 PM in Video Games Share SkyrimTroubles September 8, 2012 5:17:40 PM This has been a problem plaguing me for a little while, and it's not only with skyrim, it's with other games as well! Specs: AMD Phenom II x4 955 Deneb Black Edition 3.8ghz Nvidia GeForce GTX 660ti w/ 2gb GDDR5 VRAM 8GB RAM @ 1333mhz Standard 500gb HDD @ 7200rpm All this, and I only get 40fps in town, and drops down to 35ish. What is going on here? More about : low fps skyrim higher end hardware Sunius September 8, 2012 6:12:52 PM Mind telling us more games? I think it's pretty much normal that it dips to 40s in town. It's due to CPU, and you cannot really do anything about it. m 0 l SkyrimTroubles September 8, 2012 6:19:16 PM Sunius said:Mind telling us more games?

I currently on have that and LoL installed, and LoL gets about 130-170ish FPS, all the time. Is it time for a CPU upgrade, and if so, what should I put in there? I'm only trying to shoot for AM3+, I don't want to have to do a full rebuild. m 0 l Related resources HELP!

And how is 130-170 FPS bad? m 0 l SkyrimTroubles September 8, 2012 6:30:19 PM Sunius said:No, not really. My i5-2500k @ 4.3 GHz doesn't get more than 45 fps in cities either.

Bethesda is killing me, man. m 0 l Sunius September 8, 2012 6:42:36 PM Check CPU usage. I suppose your CPU is OCed? m 0 l SkyrimTroubles September 8, 2012 6:46:15 PM My CPU is not OCed. Running at stock 3.2ghz. I did muck with the settings however, and managed to fudge it around. I've got it so the graphics are still rather gorgeous and I'm getting around 45-60ish in town, with some dips down to 30. Such is life Thanks for the help. m 0 l Sunius September 8, 2012 6:50:24 PM No problem. OCing the CPU might help. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
