Okey guys so i have a problem!
I can play BF3 on ultra, with 4x msaa and anisotropic filter on 16x with 70+ FPS.
But when i play MW2 and MW3 on highest it lags, even on singeplayer :( 

More about : wtf

There was a recent post where someone eventually suggested limited the pre-rendered frames in the NVIDIA Control Panel to 1 and this fixed the persons issues.

I have a AMD GPU. And it doesn't lag on BF3, it lags on MW2 and MW3.

When you say, "lag", then what do you mean? Low fps, fps drops or stuttering?

MW2 and MW3 should be pretty easy for your GPU to eat, if it can run BF3 with such great results.

there is an issue with some mice and the call of duty engines. mine was a lachesis at the time. i had to run my cpu at a minimum of 3.2ghz to get the games to play smoothly. i dunno why this is but it iis the only game engine i have had issues with.
so check your mosue drivers. try unpluging it and playing with a cheap generic mouse for a game or 2 to see if the issue persists. if it does you have your answer.

also amd cards dont like shader warming. on 1 of the games you can turn it off in the menu the other you have to turn it off in the config file.

lagging is a connectivity issue

is lagging what you are experiencing.

Well, we know it isn't the GPU... so chances are it's just another unhappy AMD-FX8350 owner who can't come to grips with reality.
- Gamers these days think 'lag' is low fps stuttering, they have almost no concept of networking or TCP/IP.

I play singeplayer, it lags there.. I dont know what happening.
December 15, 2012 11:13:08 AM

then its not lagging.

lagging is either a gap between an action and a reaction, i.e. you press a key and nothing happens.
or
it is something you put on pipes.

it is not low frame rates or inconsistent frame rates.

describe your problem without using any terminology that you don't really know the meaning of, as that will make it a lot easier to help you when we know what is actually happening as opposed to trying to guess what you mean.

My money is on frame stutter :)

Btw i use 12.11 beta drivers, should i downgrade? Most people say its only good for like Far Cry 3 and BF3, but it has problems with DirectX 9 games like CoD. What should i do?
December 15, 2012 12:02:39 PM

What CPU/GPU is it?
December 15, 2012 12:09:35 PM

I have a 7870 OC 2GB.
December 15, 2012 1:24:50 PM

And the CPU?
December 15, 2012 1:39:30 PM

i5 2500k.

And now is every game "lagging", it like lags 1 second then plays good for 5 second and lags etc, should i downgrade drivers? I think it has something to do with that.

I think you got vsync enabled and then when the fps goes under 60 fps it will force Lock to 30 fps. Which is a good reason why to buy Nvidia, because adaptive vsync fixes this problem.

I dont got vsync on, if you are a professional helper you understand that? I said that i get 70+ on FPS, vsync is locked to 60 fps if you have a 60hz monitor, and i have it.

None of us are professional helpers, if you want a professional helper go and pay for one and don't be ignorant.

What temps are you seeing, cpu and gpu.

What should i do then? Downgrade drivers? I can't play any games without lag..

Professional? How can I be proffesional when you haven't answered my first question?

If vsync isn't enabled then you will experience micro stuttering. If you just had a Little bit of knowledge vsync you would know that.

December 15, 2012 4:46:32 PM

Srry then, but please answer what i should do!!! I dont have vsync on..
December 15, 2012 4:55:56 PM

Is the OP getting fps drops or input delay? It would help if people had a grasp of nomenclature before they start demanding help. This is just a forum full of helpful people, not paid troubleshooters tasked with wading through sketchy descriptions of problems to find solutions.
December 15, 2012 5:15:41 PM

He has not responded either way, been asked twice now, have given up.
December 16, 2012 10:13:43 AM

What should i do then? How do i downgrade to 12.10 ?
December 16, 2012 10:24:50 AM

Now every game lags except BF3 :(  Hitman Absolution, Saints Row 3 lags on low settings, but BF3 dont lag on high settings :( ? WTF is happening? Please someone help! I know it has something to do with drivers
December 16, 2012 10:34:14 AM

When you say "lags" you have to be more specific man. You're not describing lag at all, and this is a forum full of technical people. Are you getting fps-drops, are you getting input delays but no fps drops? You have to describe specific symptoms otherwise we can't give you better answers than a fortune teller could.
December 16, 2012 10:41:43 AM

my guess is a hot 2500k due to a poorly seated HSF, and its throttling and unthrottling.

or

given the information we have, its scared due to the 21st of the 12th being imminent.

December 16, 2012 11:24:51 AM

I dont understand your english :S
But i get fps drops, thats it. Sometimes it lags, sometimes not. How do i reduce it?

Feel free to submit a corrected version :-) It's not clear otherwise which part of you disagree with, or if it's the entire post?

Well, he never said temperatures.

@OP: Download HWMonitor from here:

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

Then, install it and turn it on. Next, go to a game and wait for it to start lagging. When it starts, make a screenshot of the HWMonitor (don't forget to maximize the program before you screenshot) and upload it to www.imageshack.us (and don't forget to select "Do not resize" option!).
