i was playing black ops with my new gtx 560 ti and i was very disapointed with the gameplay. my fps was never constant and always falling below 10. its basically im possible to play. when i tried to figure out the problem i realized my 560 was only 15-20% underload while running black ops. then i tried this on other games and it seems that on every game i have played my 560 has never used its full power. the only program where i was able to max out my gpu was furmark. in games i got more consistant performance on my old gt 240

if anybody has and suggestions or answers i would love to hear them.

What drivers are you using?

Also, run heaven benchmark and show us the FPS.

Along with filling in your system specs, which is critical, knowing the res/settings etc you're playing at would also be helpful.

I assume you mean online/multiplayer since that's what most people are interested in ... how does it do in single-player?

Some other things to try are: Unigine Heaven bench (max it out) and 3dMark11. Either of these two should tap out your gpu usage very nicely

If you switched from previously having an AMD/ATI card installed, did you use driver sweeper or the like to clean out the Catalyst drivers?

Welcome to OCN btw

didn't black ops have a problem with that terrible performance and that's why there's like 6 patches for it? I know black ops wasn't playable for me until i installed all patches.

Your old GT 240 has significantly less horsepower than the 560. Logically, you would see a higher load on the GPU with that old combination.

If your proc turns out to be sufficient it's likely a severe driver issue.

What CPU do you have? Most likely you need to upgrade your CPU. I have the same problem too, so I'm saving up.

i have a intel pentium 4 524 single core processor 3.06 ghz

OP stands for Original Poster

I know what your problem is. Pentium 4. Had a friend link me this thread for the lulz but he is too scared to post so ill help out ^^ ily slauterfish

Anyways, you NEED to look at upgrading the rest of your pc. Basically, you need a new CPU, Motherboard and Ram. this isnt really expensive. You should be able to spend $250-$300 to get them upgraded and able to run black ops and BC2 fine. But if you have a bit more cash. Spend say $200 on mobo, $100-150 on ram and $200-300 on CPU. That will make sure any future games that come out you will be able to run. If you need help with new hardware, just ask, we are happy to help

bc2 is cpu intensive. even on the lowest of low settings your still going to get a jittering lag. if i recall, the minimum hardware you need for bc2 is a Core2 duo @ 2ghz. a single at 3 is not neccisarly better

I'm affraid he's not . Though you can help me ... i get the most idiot gameplay ever in mafia 2 or gtaiv for ex...

In mafia 2 for instance it doesn't matter if i play on 1024x768 with lowest details possible , i get around 27-28 fps

And when i play at 1800x1440 with highest details possible i get 25-26 .

SO , CAN ANYONE HELP ME ? Also , playing in stereo 3D doesn't make any fps difference (2-3 maybe ) .

That processor would be a bottleneck for a 6800 AGP card from 7 years ago. There's no other way to say this, you need to upgrade.

I'll explain the logic of it. It doesn't matter how powerful your card is, if your processor is maxed there's nothing more the GPU can do.

In the past 6-7 years speeds have increased dramatically, then we switched to dual core, dual cores could multitask significantly better than single procs. The first generation of dual cores were simply the same speed as the fastest single procs but they had their core split, so that 4ghz proc turned into 2 cores, each at 2ghz. Over time the dual cores reached 8ghz, then tri cores and quad cores came out, meaning 3 and 4 cores. They could obviously multitask even better. Each of those cores on a current $100 quad core proc now is literally faster than your entire processor.

There are confusing aspects of dual and quad core games, just b/c you have a quad core proc doesn't mean the game will be using all of the cores, it's a matter of how the game was programmed, when quad cores first came out a very high clocked dual core obliterated the quad cores as games could only use 2 of the cores from the quad core so it ran at half the speed.

Bad Company 2 is a true quad core game, your 3ghz single core proc can barely handle processing the sounds.
