6870X2 - CPU bottleneck - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Its your resolution. It makes your CPU the bottleneck.

If you went to 1080p/1200p you would see about the same framerates you are now

Thanks a lot. Rep+

I'll try that. I thought Warhead was capable of running on 4 cores.

Wish I had a full HD. Next move is a 120Hz 46" Samsung. Not sure if it will be 3D.

I was hoping a second card would fix that. Any settings to lower CPU usage apart from physics to medium?
Thats the prob, i have the same thing, your res is too low, your MASSIVE amount of GPU power is forcing your poor lil CPU to render alot of frames, and since most games are coded for dual cores your effectivley forcing a mid clocked dual core to render 2 high end gpus frames per second, Raise FPS or go back to single and try and stress GPU as much as possible, or jus get new monitor.

Turns out my Crysis stuttering problem were resolved using the 32bit version instead of the 64bit.

Weird isnt it?

Finally I have limited my framerate to 30fps so I dont go from 60 to 30 all the time. There is a command for that: fixed_time_step=-0.0335

With motion blur, it is quite smooth. Rygel texture pack works with the 32 bit version but was laggy as hell with the 64.

I am still bottlenecked by the CPU but at least my frame rate is steady at 30+
