Lag in large scale battles Tags: PC gaming GPUs CPUs Video Games Last response: November 23, 2012 11:30 AM in Video Games Share M4niAcX November 23, 2012 12:01:26 AM This is true on Guild Wars 2 such as in large WvW fights and just recently on Planetside 2. When ever I go into large warfights with a lot of other players, my fps goes to 20.. None of my GPU or CPU utilization is maxed out; my CPU is at ~50%, GPUs at ~35% Have updated video drivers, and chipset. Especially on GW2 whenever I turn around in a large town or something, everything drops; my cpu, gpu(usage) and my fps goes to 5 for a very short period.

It SOUNDS like a lack of vram to be honest, those cards are a couple of years old now though... Virus ??? Hard drive failing ?

I would say a faster Proc is needed and maybe a new HDD but that would be stuttering more likely if it was HDD. m 0 l evilsooty November 23, 2012 11:30:24 AM Planetside 2 doesn't use much VRAM. I have a 3GB 580 and have never seen it go above 1GB on high settings at 1080p whereas BF3 frequently hits 2GB. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
