Empire total war

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey there.

I was wondering what might be happening here.

Ive got a GTX 560 and Phenom II X4 965.

To start with, on benchmarks both perform above average and same in other games.

Yet in Empire: Total War, it can get stuttery while it shouldnt. I've seen people claim they got about 50FPS on Ultra/High with a GT 9800GX2, yet mine doesnt feel above 50 at all, I'd say around 30-40

The game isn't patched yet. Before I start downloading the patches, could anyone tell me if CA covered the FPS loss for nvidia users in some of the patches ?

Also if theres patch 1.5, can I just download it and install it or do I have to go from 1.1 onwards ?

They are obviously lying. Patches probably help a bit, you would have to read the specific patchnotes to see what they did. I am 99% positive nobody on here just happens to know off hand every patch note for a game and if you will see performance with a specific card or not.
