If you're CPU usage is 99.99% then that means its running at full capacity. It can't run any faster than that. I would interpret this as your CPU is bottle-necking your system performance in terms of games (or at least LA Norie). You need a faster CPU.
Since you and your friend have the exact same GPU but his is playing the game smoothly, I would say that the GPU is not the limiting factor.
Thank you so much for let me know
But "ReadMe" file said:
Operating System: Windows 7 / Windows Vista Service Pack 1 / Windows XP Service Pack 3
Processor: Intel Dual Core 2.2GHz to Quad Core 3.2GHz / AMD Dual Core 2.4Ghz to Quad Core 3.2Ghz
RAM: 2GB to 8GB
So why that game can't run on Core 2 Duo? That should be work as well as Core-i3.
Since I was changing the graphics settings that are not effect on performance.
Then I think maybe I need a faster CPU like "Core 2 Quad (or) Core-i3"
I also know my friend's CPU is 50% faster than my CPU
*I really want to know why they write "Intel Dual Core 2.2GHz" in ReadMe file?
*I already have faster than that CPU.
There are many factors that can happen. One thing I can think of is that since your CPU is running at full capacity, it might be getting too hot. Are your running on stock CPU cooler or do you have an aftermarket? Check your temps and see how they are faring.
Note that when your temps are too high, your CPU slows down to attempt to reduce the heat.
Also, he has a newer generation CPU.
As for why its not running smoothly despite their claims, I'm not sure. Perhaps "Dual Core" is different from "Core 2 Duo."
My CPU temp is not too hot! It's only 48-54`C @ 99% usage.
As the minimum spec for "Need For Speed THE RUN" they said minimum CPU for that game is Core 2 Duo 3.0GHz
But my CPU can run smoothly!
And my CPU usage is only 90% !!
I think there is nobody can't figure it out.
Today, I installed L.A. Norie game in my previous O/S > Windows XP [Driver: v301.42]
Then my PC is happily run that game so I get really really surprise on that game.
The CPU usage is only 96% and I can play smoother than Windows 7.
So I can play as my friend playing that game in Windows 7.
Also my PC can running at 1366x768 resolution (Native).
As I asked above, are you and your friend playing at the same resolution? At higher resolutions the graphics card is used more than the CPU. At lower resolutions games become more CPU bound. 1366 x 768 is a lower resolution.
The GT220 is really not a very good card for gaming. One reason you may be doing better in Windows XP is that running the game in Direct X 9 is less demanding than the Direct X 10 you were likely using in Windows 7. The GT 220 does not support DX 11 at all.
No, but my monitor's resolution is as same as my friend. (Native: 1366x768)
My friend playing at 1280x720 resolution (with FXAA Antialiasing x1)
Mine is 1366x768 (with no FXAA Antialiasing)
I know my Graphics card doesn't support DX11, so next year I'll upgrade my Graphics card like "GTX 550 Ti" or "GT 640"
Is that my CPU can handle that kind of Graphics card or faster card?
Should I need faster Graphics card (GTX 560,570) for 1366x768 resolution?
I already overclocked my CPU (3.53GHz) to test that game in Windows 7 but this is not effect on performance.
Now, we both no overclock our CPU.
