[fixed] BC2 FPS drops

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Recently my game got really weird and I have no idea what's causing it. It's not the hardware because it doesn't happen in any other game and ive seen this before come and go.. now it's back again

The game pretty much goes down to 1-3 fps or whatever for like 2-3 seconds max and then it's stable again... happens every 15 min or so

Nothing is overheating because everything is on water... I would understand if the CPU was overheating and downclocking = the issue, but that's not the case

It's getting really annoying.

Also ignore my signature, I am running a single 5970 with 11.8 / 11.7 cap ,tried with 11.7b and it wasnt there, then it came back.. and funny thing is I reinstalled my PC (because I had to anyway) and its still here... I haven't changed any settings, everything is working as intended.. I don't get it

You have the latest drivers, directx, etc ?
Try the game without any overclock, and see if it is fixed, if it's not, you eliminated your overclock to be the cause of the issue.

Hey man, I had this happen to me a few weeks back... it was getting frustrating, but it went away... not after any driver updates or any tweaking overclocks... i think i may have reinstalled the game (non-steam) and it seemed to work, i also used to get crashes to desktop as soon as i entered a game, around the same time i'd get some horrendous stuttering for like 2-3 seconds and the sound would go nuts... fooking annoying when you're on a streak!

Try re-installing the game. (i had the 5970, sent back within a week as the drivers were abysmal) i'm not a fan of single pcb duel gpus...

Check your temps, something might be throttling.

Exactly it's definitely the game.. I don't know what's going on with Punkbuster and ATI drivers... switching to 580's tomorrow or so

It's not my hardware : / everything is under 50c load, vrm's are fine... and it only happens in BC2

Punkbuster me thinks.

Nothing wrong with AMD drivers, I play it at +120fps at all times.

And it ran fine with my HD5970 too. Did you install anything recently?

Could be Punkbuster, but I doubt it has nothing to do with AMD drivers, you said you didn't touch anything on them when it happened so...

A little update.. I fixed it by updating pretty much everything Windows Updates (including service pack 1) DirectX, Punkbuster (already updated it before that so it must be the other stuff) using 11.8p with 11.8 cap (new)

Played for 1 hour, didn't drop to 1 fps
