View Full Version : [Graphics Lag] Low framerate
12-16-2010, 06:17 PM
Since I got a "new" machine from work I have experienced a pretty bad framerate. I have tried everything even remotely related which have been posted in this forum, disabling sound, reinstalling, every graphic setting etc.
I even went out and bought a new GFX card, but still experience a framerate between 20 and 30 whenever there is action on screen which is a little more dense that lane phase.

All drivers are up to date according to DriverMax
Here is a console log of a couple of games:

What's your cpu usage like when in game? I'd like to try and figure out what's causing the bottleneck.

I'm at work right now so I will get back to you later about the CPU usage

Ok, got it now:
I have Hon and skype running

And btw, the latest patch didn't change anything for me :(

Yeah, HoN is using 100% cpu for some reason. Because Windows 7 groups driver instances in with the process, it's hard to tell what's causing such high cpu usage. I'm running on an i7 980x @ 4.3Ghz and get maybe 20% cpu usage in game, so I would think one of the drivers is acting up.

So, what do I do about that?
12-18-2010, 10:09 AM
I just removed the affinity from CPU 0 and gonna try a game with that

that wasn't any good

I uploaded another log from the newest update:

Hmm. I'd like to try running the linux client if you're able to do that. I know you can install ubuntu without repartitioning. Is that too much to ask? I basically want to use it to test if it's a software or hardware issue causing the problem.

That is a good idea, I am gonna try it when I get home.
On another note I also thought about the fact that there are 2 physical CPUs and that I could try and remove one of them to see if it helps anything?

exactly the same framerate in Ubuntu :(
12-20-2010, 03:42 PM
Ok, I have tried a couple of other benchmarks which gave me some odd results compared to "similar" specced machines that I could google.
First Batman Arkam asylum, this performed equally bad as HoN is doing
Then Furmark which was on par with the benchmarks I could find

Hmm. It must be something hardware related, then, if ubuntu is having the same problems. Is your bios up to date?

The developers are aware of the fps problems. Hopefully they'll be fixed, soon.

I got tired and bought a new machine, runs a rock solid 125fps, happy new year :)

Gotta love new rigs :). I just bought crysis due to the 75% off steam sale and have been having a blast playing it on max settings on my nvidia gtx 480 I got last summer :).
