Stuck FPS in Quake Live?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Not quite sure what is going on.

I purchased an AW2310 a week ago and played Quake Live for a couple of days with it. It has since been returned for backlight issues. However, now that I am using my U2410 again, I am having problems.

At first, it felt so sluggish. I attributed this originally to going from 120Hz to 60Hz and lower input lag, but now after checking my FPS in the game, I am not so sure.

I am stuck at about 86-90 FPS. I have com_maxfps 125 and vsync is off in game. I also have vsync forced off in the NVIDIA control panel. I switched configs and did a vid_restart and everything.

Nothing has changed my FPS from about 90. I didn't check what it was with the 120Hz Alienware, but I still think there's an issue when 2 GTX580s get 90 FPS in a game that looks worse than an under-average cartoon.

Any suggestions?

Did you try disabling SLI? Its worth a shot IMO. no matter how "updated" QL's engine is its still IDTech3 with Bolt-ons and probably gets screwed up to some degree by modern hardware. my clanmate had to disable crossfire on his 4850's to keep the game from locking up every 5 minutes when we played it (a long time ago TBH). Also, may be worth checking if you have "prefer Maximum performance" under power management for QL (In your driver settings). I have severe issues trying to run UT2k4 without that on my 470 as its stuck in "medium power" 3d clocks otherwise.


Had it originally been running fine on the monitor youre currently using? If so have you updated drivers since then? added the 2nd 580? Did you check the FPS on the 120hz monitor? I Notice a HUGE difference in Fluidity of FPS's going from my CRT which is 120hz to my LCD even with the same framerate, Especially UT/Quake.
