Skyrim Performance Awful - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
Thanks for all of the responses, guys.

I'll try disabling speedstep in the BIOS.

My chipset is P67, so it can't be integrated graphics, can it? I've checked in the BIOS and found nothing.

I did a reformat and Skyrim performance improved substantially. However, it's still not at the point I would expect from my system. Think maybe it was a combination of bad software setup and poor drivers/optimization? With the former fixed, the latter is still left to wreak its havoc until the issue is rectified by Bethesda/AMD.

Not running a DNA skyrim.ini are you?
On my 6970 without vsync on I get an average of 120 FPS outdoors and well over 200 FPS indoors.
I'm on all ultra @ 1680x1050 and I have the 4GB.exe.
I haven't had a problem in the slightest with my AMD/ATI GPU on the default settings skyrim gave me since the launch of the game. So NO they do NOT have driver issues.

If you have a DNA skyrim.ini then delete it and the skyrimprefs.ini that have been modified for the DNA and restart your character.

I'm not running a modified .ini file. I have modified it in the past in an attempt to fix the FPS issues, but it seems to be the same either way.

How can you be so assured that there are not driver issues based solely on your own experience?

Yes, I've disabled vsync. Didn't help.


I often get the same kind of stuttering/choppiness indoors, with seemingly very little to render. My GPU usage doesn't go past 60-70%, does that matter? I've also monitored the CPU with the task manager, but I don't think that usage is accurate.

You can do tweaks here and there, but it all comes down to your GPU. Just wait on new AMD drivers; I get massive fps dips too on my 5850.

I would assume that if it was just an ati/amd driver problem then a lot more people would have the same issue you are having with skyrim to the tee.
However I do not believe that to be the case.

I'm gonna put my money on it being a CPU bottleneck the game is after all a console port at heart and hasn't had a good patch yet. Your CPU not being overclockable makes finding out if it is the CPU really slim. It could be that the game needs around 4 ghz on the CPU at this point in time, but it could also be that it isn't the CPU at all.

Somebody else mentioned tweaking settings in CCC, make sure you do that and have them set to low or controlled exclusively by the program and not CCC.

Yeah, but (not to argue) what about the guy that said he's running the same cpu/gpu combo with smooth gameplay? What is it about *my* chip?

I just want confirmation of the fact that it might be my hardware's performance, because then I can just go and buy new equipment xD. I'm still concerned it's a faulty part (how do I make sure my GPU is running up to speed?), or some mistake I made during construction of the computer. Otherwise, I'm probably going to get myself a 2500k, and then ask for a hyper 212, some case fans, and a 2nd 6850 (crossfire) for Christmas this year.

P.S. I am messing with the CCC settings, but they appear normal.

Just wondering. What is your max-min-avg FPS in fraps? I did a test run in whiterun by starting at the dragonsreach front door and taking a loop around the city all the way back to the front door then I turned around and looked at the tree for a second or two and ended my benchmark there.

Frames = 5689. Time(ms) = 133661. Min = 25. Max = 62. Avg = 42.563.
