Regarding Quad cores and GTX 200 Series

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere, but I've just spent since yesterday evening straight through the night trying to figure out this problem. I had scoured the net trying to find the solution soooo lemme shoot you some details here

I recently bought a GTX260 SSC Edition as well as a Q6600 Intel Quadcore processor and was having the time of my life until I realized I was getting terrible, horrible interval stuttering playing Crysis, Farcry 2, etc. After looking around and reading various threads I pretty much realized a lot of the similarities were that most of the people having this issue were others with quadcores.

I guess the main thing I found out was that when I can have my new gpu teamed up with my old replaced P4 3.4 and run Crysis no prob... something's wrong. The thing that worked for me was going into Nvidia's control panel and using the Manage 3D applications tab for Crysis and setting "Threaded Optimization" to "off". Viola! Sure I lost a couple fps (When the game was smooth I would hit around 30-50 on high), but I didn't have the interval stuttering, frame drop. I hope this helps at least someone else with this issue as it probably would've saved me some time for my finals' studying if I had found it sooner

Too much to read? Bottom line: Possible fix for quadcore stuttering - Threaded Optimization.

I noticed the same thing but just thought it was my GPU. Thanks for the input!
