Rage game 100% cpu usage causes freezing

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

It is the first time I see a game use up all 6 core maxed out 100% on my X6 1055T overclocked to 3.6 Ghz. This causes constant freezing during game play which basically makes the game unplayable. Has anyone found a solution to this? Seems like CF 6970 is not helping getting used that much and it is mosylt the CPU that is doing the work? What the heck?

Thanks....

It could be the CPU or GPU overclock was not stable. Restore all to default clock and try again if it is OC instability issue.

I was running with normal settings and then decided to overclock. both cases CPU hits 100% and game freezes. I will try 4Ghz but not sure if it will fix the issue....

Run Windows Update, DirectX 9, 10 & 11. Install all available updates. Looks like some Windows componensts are conflicting with the game.

And Update the game too.

zylonite I have the same problem, i have an i7-2720qm and it spikes to 100% every now and then causing annoying lag, before it spikes cpu usage is around 25-30%. ive tried lowering all the settings to minimum and it still happens. I find it odd because I play dead island on maximum settings and it only uses 18-25% cpu. ram usage on both is around 35%. I have an hd 6970, maybe because we're using amd video cards? I know a bunch of problems related to rage have been with amd cards. im also using a ssd and all of my drivers are up to date.

For me, it is Catalyst AI. When on, it uses 100% of my CPU, when off, it uses like 40-60%. However, if I turn Catalyst AI off, I get some really bad texture glitches, so I have to put up with it sadly

Have you tried installing amd's Rage performance driver yet?

I think it will take 2-3 weeks to get the drivers sorted out...
Play something else in the mean while.

My rage was doing the the same on my athlon II x3 450 unlocked to X4 b50 even at 4ghz!

To fix the problem google "AMD catalyst 11.10b drivers"....I know they are supposed to be the drivers to fix BF3 beta, but they have included fixes for rage an never really posted that they had done that.

been on rage 17hours now without a single crash or freeze
