..so I'm 300mhz faster processor speed/140mhz faster FSB speed (Quad pumped) and therefore faster memory speed as well/1024x768/High Detail and other settings default (as site's review system) and I only get 33.1fps!!
Now I know different computer systems act differently but 13fps in Doom 3 says a WHOLE LOT!! Am I missing something? Anyone? Thanks!
i find review sites always get higher numbers than what i get in real life
i get 47fps with a 2.4ghz Athlon, and a 9800pro @ xt speeds, 128megs vram..
thats AFTER tweaking the doomconfig file, and doing the new ATI shader hack. Tomshardware didnt do that hack , and they are getting 46.. and at the CPU speeds we are at, its mostly video card bottlenecked
Fool... there are a number of tweaks you can do when u have an ati card. I don't know them since I have a nvidia card. Or make sure u have no viruses spyware or other open programs. Also if all else fails try to reformat (only if u have the time and patience), if problem continues then it might be hardware problems. But really it could be anything I mean I play D# on high on my 64mg card and it runs fine most of the time.
Before I enabled this tweak, I was getting around 43fps in the demo1 bench on 1024x768 High Quality. After the tweak I'm getting around 52fps and the in game fps runs at a much more solid rate. I can definately tell an improvement.
So I would assume you will see a nice improvement with this tweak. Doesn't hurt to try. If you try, post your new results.
I believe what I proposed will do that for you. The website I got it from said these were settings for people who wanted to keep the integrity of high quality settings and at the same time receive better performance.
I think the reason reviewers get higher fps is because their systems are newly formatted, and probably all that's on the pc is Windows XP SP2 and Doom 3! So less background proccesses, and better performance. Of course in the real world you're not gonna format your whole pc for 10 fps extra - at least not if you're sane
Sorry to hear that. And actually, now that I think about it, I know why it didn't work.
The settings that you tried and that I use, are for gfx cards with 128mb memory. Yours has 256mb and mine has 128mb, so maybe that is why it didn't help you. The site said they had yet to impliment a tweak for 256mb cards, but that they were working on it.
I will try to find the site for you and link it here. Again, sorry it didn't work for ya.
Ahh, don't worry about it. You tried to help me..and failed miserably! Ha, ha, ha! Just kidding bro. I guess I should stop being picky, huh? I don't mind the way the game plays now but KNOW that 8X AF is overkill. No prob, don't stress over it. Thanks for the help.
Oh, did you know that voodooextreme.com released the Trent Reznor sounds he did for Doom 3 and then later took the link down at id's request? Do you happen to know to get or have that exclusive sound pack? thanks
