post #1621 of 2109
my friend ran the benchmark. he has a q6600 and he said that his cpu usage was only 50%. He's running stock settings though, and i don't know how he has his bios set up... Mine hovers around 83%-91%. I'm leaving voltages pretty much stock for all my stuff until i get proper cooling.

I wish people would work together a bit more in multiplayer instead of running around like ******* lol @ that word being censored

the options go outside of the quotes should read:

Sounds like he needs to increase his game settings. If he has that much headroom on his CPU then he really isn't loading it enough.

I run my game at about 97% cpu load and 100% graphics.

When GTA IV is running, open task manager and go to processes. Right click GTA IV and set priority to Realtime.

Should give you some more performance.

Yeah I realised after I posted (remembered Devmode on Crysis)

Seems the spare PC (mines out of action) is too feeble, I'm stuck at the launcher.

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz

The CPU is at 3,6ghz, GTA IV doesn't detect it
Thats really interesting, I have very simlar setup (though I think Nvids run better in this. Only difference is your clock speed, Im at 2.6Ghz while I wait for my cooler to come. Hopefully I will get its around 50fps, when I OC it, though I think 3.6Ghz may be a bit far for me to get !

I have a q6600 and its only ever around 75-80%, it never seems to max out the quads like it does on the duals. Just get him to keep upping his settings and running the benchmarks until the performance dies off, as it would see he will be able to at least boost the traffic volume up.
