20FPS on Doom3?? ROFL

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I can't figure out if it's a CPU/GFX/driver problem, but every now and then, I'll dip to about 20FPS in Doom 3. I'm using very high settings with no AA and Vsync off @ 1280x1024. That can't be right can it? I've seen benchies where X850s tore right through D3 and my HD3850 is having problems? I've never seen it go higher than 55C and my CPU hangs out at 38C.

I'm getting a new case, if my friend pulls through, I'll try a reformat, pretty much go through the book. I have the latest Cats as well. I'm folding as well, if that helps. Also, with a long running problem since I've owned this board is that I can never get it to go higher than 1.2Ghz stock. I'm working all weekend, so I can't try an OC just yet.

It's probably just unsupported by Doom or something.

Wow that's really weird. Just do the usual stuff... update drivers, patch the game, and if worse comes to worse reinstall the game.

I just installed the game ROFL... like right after I got home from work that was the first thing I did. I'll try a patch though.

Its your ram. D3 can utilize up to 512 megs as a frame buffer. Remember that it was a system killer about 3 and a half years ago so even todays lower end cards can struggle with it. I am not saying you have a lower end card but ya do...and I mean that in a nice way. I wouldnt think it would dip so low but I wouldnt rule it out either.

Its your Video ram and your proc man.

I can run D3 just fine on my P4 rig with a 9800XT and only 1GB of ram. 1024x768 on med. I'll never go under 30FPS (which is playable for me). I'm just baffled.

Wow, I didn't know that lower end cards could pull 20-30 fps in Crysis on high at 1280x1024...


Check if you're running it at the 2d clocks, I know Catalyst has some problems in that regard, so it could just be a driver issue.

NOOOO V.sync should be ON, can't people se the horrific glitches in games with V.sync off?
Also D3 runs perfect on 3870 it's not bad or something, heck my 7800GT punched 120FPS on 1600x1200 maxed on 0xAA 16xAF everything maxed in Nvidia Control Panel (as ususall)
