Im running a 5870.

I know age of empires 3 is an old game, but i've come across something weird. With all settings maxed out, i get about 15fps! FIFTEEN. However as soon as i change the '' model texture quality'' from high to low, the problem is sorted and i get about 250fps. It seems that all the graphics settings can be max except this one.

Now this is no big deal and no pressing issue, but i just found it kinda interesting, and was wondering what could cause this to happen??

Thanks for any replies

That has to be a driver issue... that card should man-handle that game. I had some odd issues with an older game and my 5850... the latest driver resolved it for me... but the game appears to run a good bit slower now.
