gta iv fps what can i do to help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
my gtx 680s are more than enough for this title. I know because no sli has no effect, and heavy overclocking has no effect. I know this is a cpu intensive game to the core. Hell i thought my i7 3930k at 4.7ghz would fair a bit better though. I have the game modded to an insane lvl. Though
At any rate i hold between 70-25fps. Usually it stays 30-40 which in my eyes isn't really except able. Is there anything i can do while keeping graphics at the lvl they are but boosting fps. Anything i can do cpu wise. Would it help to turn off hyperthreading or anything. Would a ram speed oc help. I prob could get my cpu up to at least 4.9ghz but at a cost of some heat. I don't 200mhz would help my frame rates that much.

The game is poorly optimized, you are aware of that, right? I know this statement does you no good at all, but just throwing it out there. It's definitely not optimized for HT, so you can try disabling that, maybe even set affinity to only run on 2-4 cores.

Im almost certain the reason sli has no effect on this title is because the sli code on nvidia's driver profile is actually wrong, there are several topics on the icenhancer and gta forums where they posted the correct sli code and they were reporting a tremendous increase in fps, let me see if I can find the thread...

ps: having said that, do not expect 60 frames minimum on this game, at least not for now...


-edit- here it is: http://icenhancer.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=display&board=help&thread=88&page=3 (just scroll down to see the actual post)

SLI or not won't make a difference, you can "max" this game graphically with much, much less.
The game just runs poorly in general from my experience, doesn't matter how beast of a rig you have.

So long as you've got a quad and a decent vid cards it's about as good as it's gonna get with this console port.

yep,

The game was poorly ported to the PC, but they did try to improve the fps with the updates which was a improvement to an extent.

is the game installed on the SSD?

I ran it as a test on my system a few months back, I played the game for about half an hour at 5.4GHz (~1.5 volts...) just to see if it would make much of a difference to my FPS.

It didn't.

Maxed out I get ~25FPS and ~30% GPU usage, if that. My CPU isn't even being taxed, so says task manager.

I guess this game is just really bad on the PC, as has been known for some time... I have also heard that it prefers AMD cards, which it guess has something to do with the 30% usage/25FPS.

So, I play it in medium @ 40-50FPS. The game doesn't look great anyway, and medium is hardly different from "Very High".

I'm hoping and praying that GTAV is better. If it comes out for the PC. mad.gif

confirmed stock cpu settings only a few fps under 5ghz. Wow what a joke i guess max 80fps min 25fps.
