post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
During BC2 I play on low and always have 90 to 110 fps and today its fluctuating like hell from 60 56 70 100 92 whats going on? Any advice it never dipped lower than 56 but I never have gotten lower than 80 fps before I run the game on a more than capable setting. advice?

Have you tried reinstalling the drivers? This should not make any difference but is the card in the top x16 slot? I believe your board is x16,x8,x4,x8 locked. Just a suggestion. Is it getting enough power? Have you installed any oc tools or vga temp monitoring programs? Check your CCC drivers overdrive page? anything change on there? Are your temps out of control? If so try speeding up the fan or use a program like rivatuner or afterburner to more aggressively speed up the fan to the change in temperature. Just ideas here.. Another thing too is that those fps's are not bad and alot of things can come into play with this. Are you forcing more AA or AF through CCC? Some settings in BC2 will affect performance more than others. Lighting and such as well as AA and AF will hurt more than certaon detail levels. Resolution isnt the only thing that knocks down FPS. Try setting everything back to default, try it again. Than go back in and set everything like the res to your preference and maybe keep the AA and AF off and then see what you get and then adjust accordingly. Oh, and maybe make sure you have the latest drivers. I believe 11.2? Maybe its different for 4870.. anyways you know the drill lol.

like DV43 said, it might be temperatures so possibly increase the fan.

Are you sure something wasn't just running in the background that was causing the stuttering?

If you were playing online, it was likely the host's connection causing the issue.

Worst case scenario re-install 11-2 drivers (latest for 4870's i think)

Hi, I got a question about increasing the fan speed. Does Riva do this or editing the Profile.xml works better?Which do you recommend? My temps are ridiculously high and I'm not even doing anything. Just casual surfing. it's 80C. Plus I think I need to clean the stick cooler. I see dusts in there. Thanks in advance.
