RoboSanta Posted October 3, 2006 Report Share Posted October 3, 2006 I'm running a Go7800GTX. It runs beautifully, except it has an extremely nasty habbit of spiking the frame rate. When this happens the GPU takes a few seconds to recover, resulting in lag that'll make you want to nose dive of your roof, with weights around your ankles and a lit match in your hand, into a pool laced with lighting fluid. For example, I ran a little test with CS:S map de_dust with settings maxed. For the first few minutes it's ok, but eventually it starts to get a little ahead of itself resulting in said lag. The average frame rate was 85+fps, when it spikes it hits up to 135fps and beyond, an impossible rate to maintain. As it recovers the frame rate drops to below 15fps, it happens continuosly, every 30 seconds or so. Vsync seems to fix the issue for most games, but the more demanding games like Far Cry and Titan Quest have it real bad! When I say "real bad" I mean it, in the case of Titan Quest the issue gets even worse when I LOWER the graphical quality. So I was thinking, if Vsync can be forced then maybe there's a more specific utility to limit the frame rate to to a more appropriate amount. I'm having a lot of trouble finding such a utility, were someone to find it for me I'd be eternally grateful. I'm looking for something that functions much like nVIDIA's program profiles, where I could set frame caps for each individual programs without having to reset it all the time. To those who think it's attributed to drivers or overheating, it isn't. I've witnessed the lag effects of overheating and this isn't it and I've tried nearly a dozen different drivers. It's also not a lack of proccessing power, if anything it's too powerful. I really need this capping utility. My specs are listed and feel free the ask me more questions. My drivers are irrelevant, but they are the Asus 91.47. Ta Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
