Massive FPS Drop - XFX 5850 - World of Warcraft

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
If I spin around very quickly I experience a massive drop in FPS. What is the bottleneck here?
CPU usage is less than 80%.
GPU usage is less than 50%.
FPS holds at a steady 60 (until spinning of course).


The only thing I can think of that would cause this FPS drop is the textures being loaded into the HD5850's memory are slowed down by my 7200 RPM drive. I'm thinking an SSD with it's high IOPS would remedy this issue.

Setting -d3d11 in the target of my WoW shortcut seems to have solved this problem for me.
Example:
"C:\\Games\\World of Warcraft\\Wow.exe" -d3d11

Hope this is of some use to someone else.
