Ok I have a pretty good pc setup. Ive looked everywhere for answers to my issues and i have yet to find anything that works. I have seen videos of a guy running Settlers 7 on the same graphics card as me with 60 fps.
First of all here is my system:
Asus P5Q Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Processor
ATI Radeon 4870x2 Graphics
4GB DDR 2 800mhz RAM
Windows 7 64 bit
Windows Firewall conifigured to allow exe
AVAST Antivirus configured to not scan settlers folder
FRAPS to check fps
CPU-z, Core temp, rivatuner & GPUID to monitor temps and speeds of components.
I have set everything to full in game and set the res to 1920x1080.
I get 15-21 fps from the start of the game.
Temps are well within tolerances and the game only seems to be using 55% of my first gpu and about 45% of my second.
The cores of my processor are as follows:
1- Around 85%
2- Around 55%
3- Around 55%
4- Around 40%
Total RAM used is 3.15gb leaving about 800mb free.
I have run the game with disabling catalyst AI, this affects nothing.
I have the 11.5 driver for my graphics card.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I could have missed?
If anyone else could help me that would be great. The person who was helping me is no longer responding.
I thought you couldn't run cross-fire on an Intel Chip set? That was all over the net a long time ago; everyone knew about it. I even placed two ATIs on an Intel Chip set and sure enough, you can't run ATI crossfire on intel. You need Nvidia's SLI or switch to AMD chipset.
