Is Napoleon Total War really this demanding?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just downloaded the demo off of steam, put all the settings to max (anisotropic 16x, 8xMSAA, all settings ultra, SSAO etc.) and I get like 6 FPS

I've seen videos of people with 5870's who max this game, is my rig not good enough to max this game or what?

Its not your graphics card, its the CPU which is clocked too low to feed your 5970 especially at your in-game settings and resolution.

Its definitely a CPU bottleneck as the Total War series is more CPU bound due to all the AI on screen at once.

If you just bump your clock speed up to 4Ghz(Which should be pretty easy), then you'll see a significant boost to your FPS.

Also, what Unit Size do you have it set to? If it is the largest that could be a HUGE contributing factor.

Agree with above. I run it at 60FPS+ with everything maxed (except for AA, I keep that at 4x) without any issues.

i don't think its a case of bottlenecking. my quad is at 3ghz and clock for clock my rig is slower. not to mention i have no HT.

OP, i have read of engine based framerate issues. i guess just turn down the settings. also check if both gpus are being used.
