Glitch? My Comp Screwed? Memory wall?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Just got the Dx11 and 1.9 patch on Cry2. I was at 1650x(xxxx) and it was slow fps. I just turned it to 1360x(xxxx) and it ran perfect. Settings were ultra. (No texture pack)... Is this what people call hitting the memory wall?

So the first part ran good when you're in the sub. WHen I was waking up in the next scene and looking around I was getting like .5fps... Is this right? I quit the game and went to restart it. And it would not load, didn't look like HDD was very active, and I checked the cpu load after it was nothing

Shine your light on me?

(I'm thinking I have bad HDD/Mobo)

Yep the game is very hard on the system. I belive its not all down to hardware tho. I mean it brings my system down and I`d say mine is quite powerfull. Yes the game definately uses more than 1GB of ram at 1080p but I find 1680x1050 runs just fine, everything maxed. Im only getting around 55fps with dips into the 30s.

The AI is also supposed to be quite advanced so your dual core is undoubtedly gona bog down with lots of enemies around. Ive heard reducing the difficulty can improove performace in this situation but not entirely sure. You wouldnt want it too easy tho.

Experiment with it at 720p using the different difficulty settings to test that, also have task manager open in full screen to see whats really going on with your cpu, and also afterburber to see how the gpu is being utilised.

With 1 gtx460 tho I wouldnt recommend going above 720p and High detail settings to get a good playable experience. My system can just about provide that. The ultra settings seem to be very hard on the system but I honestly dont think the particle and other new effects are going to be that noticeable.

Well first guess it would be bottleneck, But then again it could be that DX11 update.

Well, if you've seen my post about bfbc2 people just blame my cpu saying it sucks and all this. It is only a dual core but every other game runs perfectly fine just bfbc2 has issues if you don't play with a quad some reason. Even on my system I can't play that xbox game where it won't go below 30fps. They're just trolling me and following all my topics to post crap about it. CPU is fine, i was playing crysis before and after the update just fine 30fps+. But now it won't even load some reason. Also, telling me my CPU is sucky and I need to build a new system isn't really helping.

Anyways I dropped all my clocks and didn't fix it sadly. However I do believe there is an issue with my motherboard or HDD. HOPEFULLY Asus will replace the mobo with a dif one soon, they said they will repair but I don't know what to tell them needs repaired... And also cautious about one of my HDDs having issues. I really hate this computer right now.

We're not JUST blaming your CPU. Your RAM sucks, too...
Also, that 460 ain't exactly king of the hill, either.

I think the issue is you. Simple as that. You're seeing a console run a game, and wondering why your computer can't. And to be honest, apart from your graphics card, you aren't too far off console specs.
Also, most of the games you've quoted as "playing badly" are pretty well optimized for PC. They feature much deeper graphical options and require a ton of grunt at max.

Either grow up and accept your systems limitations, or do what every other kid does: Nag mummy for a new one.
I'm aware I don't know your age; but by what you project on these forums, you sound like a 13yr old.

Just sayin'

If you don't wanna listen, it's fine.
But don't call 'troll' when what we're saying is true.

Also, Dirt and Dirt 2 are two very different games, get your facts right.

A single core AMD may run Dirt but not Dirt 2.

I get lag spikes in BC2 on an i7.
Demanding much? Yes.

And that's with HT on.

You only have a dual.
No matter how good, face the fact that BC2 is a demanding game.

If anyone's trolling I'm pretty positive it's you.
Why would you ask a question only to tell those who actually gave a hoot to answer your nth thread about the same damn thing to shut up because they're supposedly wrong.

Upgrade these and you might have a fighting chance.

CPU - e8400 @ 3.8ghz 1.35v
Memory - AllComponents 800mhz 2x2gb

BTW my computer can run this game in dx9 on max settings 0 lag seen, now if I had a gtx460 that would smash my 4870 (512mb ram) and I am sure it would run ultra just fine without lag/ low frame rates.. why? because the video card is the bottleneck in my system, your system is the bottleneck and your video card is decent.

just the breaks

I have a Core 2 Quad Q9550 o/c'ed @ 3.6GHz w/ an o/c'ed GTX460 1GB and in BFBC2, it lags on ultra. No wonder you can't run it on ultra either. It's a demanding game. And by the way, it is not because it is slow on your computer that it means it is not optimized for PC.

I had a Core 2 Duo E8200 o/c'ed @ 3.8GHz and running GTA4 was not easy. When I got my quad core, it gave a boost, even when it was not overclocked. Some games are quad-core optimized, while many others are not.

As previously said, I would recommend upgrading your RAM and CPU. But before doing that, I would suggest that you check your graphics card drivers and/or do a fresh install of windows. If you cannot run Dirt 2, I would definitely check the graphics card drivers.

But please, do me a favor by changing that RAM.
