WoW - How much cpu power do you need? (Answer: More than Sandy Bridge) - Page 3

post #21 of 253
Wow is dual threaded? HA. It doesn't use more than a tiny bit of CPU in a second thread, if any.

Addons are usually the first suspect, but you can get caught in the Lag District with no addons whatsoever.

I don't think there is anything wrong with my system, the HHD, or my connection.

Are you folding while playing WoW?

I don't believe it's a CPU issue, how else can the GPU hit 100% while the CPU doesn't?

It's called Fraps.
The gpu(s) aren't hitting 100% though.

The program I use is Afterburner - monitoring.

Then it isn't ultra settings. Its just ultra on everything but shadows. Oh and I get around 45 FPS in org watching people walk around. I'll post a SS of it tomorrow since I am about to hit the sack.

"The overlay corner indicates the region of the screen that the framerate counter will be displayed in. Choose a corner that doesn't obstruct important information in the game's display. If you select Disabled the frame rate counter will not be displayed on screen."

Sorry, I misread there. Does your problem also occur with DX9 enabled?

From my exp there's more load on my SSD when walking/loading around in bit city's rather then an increased CPU usage.
