Games run Half slower with a CPU upgrade Tags: CPUs FPS Intel Last response: October 31, 2012 12:14 PM in CPUs Share SgtMantazz October 31, 2012 11:45:50 AM I have recently bought a Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4 Ghz CPU, before that i was using an Intel Celeron E3400 2.6 Ghz CPU. I have bought Euro Truck simulator 2 that i was playing on the Celeron at about 25-30 FPS on Low settings, and after installing my Core 2 duo the FPS has dropped by half on ALL games. My specs are: I have 2GB's of RAM and im using an Nvidia geforce 8400 GS Card (I know it's all and worthless, but i want to know why did my FPS drop by half on a Newer, faster CPU?)

SgtMantazz October 31, 2012 12:01:58 PM Yes, but everywhere that i read and heard they said That a Core 2 Duo is faster and more ideal for gaming than a Celeron, that it is supposed to improve my gaming experience rather than make it worse.
