Lag in large scale battles
Nov 23, 2012, 12:01 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.

Hmm I thought they may have been the 768 versions we used to sell in my shops...
It SOUNDS like a lack of vram to be honest, those cards are a couple of years old now though...
Hard drive failing ?

Very CPU heavy games. I would say a faster Proc is needed and maybe a new HDD but that would be stuttering more likely if it was HDD.

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.
Ask a new question
Can I Max out BF3?
