NFS Carbon FPS

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
What kinda FPS are you guys getting in NFS Carbon? For some reason when I downloaded FRAPS it is telling me that at 1280x1024 with all settings maxed that I am only getting 22fps?! Oddly enough the game is running VERY smooth there are no lag spots or anything. I am running my 4200+ x2 at 2.68 GHz and my 7950gt 512mb at 650/850. What could be the problem? CPU loads at 49c GPU loads at 55c

Umm...

What do you mean? I understand exactly what you're saying but what's the 'PROBLEM'?

You've got smooth frames and you're complaining?

Fraps laggs the FPS.


I would add about 10-15FPS from what it says.

The only "problem" can be traced to your RAM. Generally for gaming these days 2GB is a must have (but not necessary). That's the only slow down point I can see in your rig everything else looks fine.

For comparison I run maxed (minus motion blur (1. can't turn it on without a reg hack 2. makes the game look like a POS)), 1600x1200, 6x AA, 16x AF.
So there shouldn't be any reasons for a lag

P.S. my fps count comes from FRAPS as well as ATI Tools (which lags behind FRAPS about 1/2 second) the reason everything looks smooth is because the maximum fps a human eye can see is 24fps (if you run 60fps and there is a sudden drop you will noticce it however) so a 2fps difference isn't going to affect you much and you won't notice lag. Below 20fps is where it becomes noticably jumpy.

NOS: FRAPS takes very little from a CPU it's about as accurate as one can get. With his rig his CPU has plenty of extra overhead for a small app like FRAPS
Good enough

That's wrong.

Fraps has never lagged unless there's a problem with the program itself.

Which there isn't. I held benchmarks with my old Athlon System and my current system, fraps tracks the same frames that HL2/CSS FPS Test does.

There's no difference.

GTR2 is badass, if I had bought GTR2 during the time I was playing Carbon, I would've quit playing Carbon.

It's super realistic and it looks pretty good and gets great frames (1600x1200 72hz @ 72FPS _vsync on).

I was thinking about getting the Logitech G25 steering wheel for it but I don't have $300 laying around, especially not around Christmas time.
