NFS : Underground and ATI Radeon 8500

How to speed up NFS : Underground on ATI Radeon 8500? I've got Athlox XP 2000+, 384 megs of RAM and the game runs in 1024x768 with high detail at about 20 fps :(
I Think that it's ATI bug. On GeForce 3 runs fine at about 30-40 fps. How to speed it up?

  1. What OS?

    If you're running WinXP, the RAM is a little on the low side. 512MB seems to be the 'sweet spot' for WinXP.

  2. Nothing, I tried with 640 megs of RAM and nothing better:(
  3. Well, you could buy a better card OR do you have the latest catalyst drivers?

    Anxiously awaiting prescott....is it here yet?
  4. the latest catalyst driver is far from being the best, I would recommend Cat 3.8

  5. Lower the resolution and run the game with motion blur. Jaggies are less apparent this way and the frame rate will be faster.

  6. I'm running NFS undeground on a Athlon 1.4 Ghz, with ATI 9500Pro and 512 Megs of ram. I have pretty much all the settings max out, and it runs perfectly at 1024x768. Maybe your problem is the video card, but just set the settings a bit lower (especially the reflections) and you should be ok.
