Positional audio lag in some games?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Why do some games do this? I just noticed it again when playing through BioShock Infinite. Basically, if someone is talking on my left side and I quickly change their position to the right side with a mouse flick, it will take like 0.7 seconds for the audio to position itself correctly. This is not a fps issue because I run that game at over 100 fps. Note that I said it only happens in some games. Now I am playing Metro: Last Light and it does not have this issue. Is this a PC issue or a game (code?) issue?

Might be your audio drivers, not sure about Infinite, but in the original Bioshock it used Rapture3D if I don't remember wrong. And that caused a lot of issues for many back then.
So if there is anything similar to that in Infinite I would try turning it off.

Best of luck!

According to this video, seems like a Bug on the game.

However, some guys doesn't have that issue. Whats your current soundcard?

Yeah, that's pretty much it. I have a X-Fi Titanium HD.
