Very low frame rate with GTX 980 and I5 4690K

Q: Very low frame rate with GTX 980 and I5 4690K

Ever since I got my parts and built my computer, I had noticed that when i first started playing games, It had been obvious that I wasn't getting the correct amount of frames for what I had bought and built. I really only played two games (Counterstrike and League of Legends) and since it wasn't a huge problem, I didn't try to solve it right away. Just recently, I had bought Overwatch and noticed that even on lowest settings, I would be getting 10-30 frames during fights with a number of people around.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I play World War II Online. After a series of updates to the game I am now finding that the frame rate I have in game is incredibly low (can be down to Frames Per Second of 5 or 10). This makes it unplayable. My graphics card is ATI Radeon X600XT 256mb with PCI Express and the drivers are all up to date.

Can anyone help as I am not sure how refresh rate on the monitor, resolution, background processes etc etc may all be effecting my FPS ingame.

Thanks

I did not know where to post it, so i thought i might post it here.

I am currently using a computer that has the following specs:
AMD Athlon II X4 620 Processor 2.60 GHz
3.00 Gb RAM
32-bit operating system (windows 7)
ATI HD Radeon 4200

I was wondering if this kind of PC would have any problems with running CoD 4 or Killing Floor.
I have both games and I have set both of the games graphics options to minimum, but both of them lag quite a lot.

Is the PC **** or is there problem somewhere else?

Thanks in Advance,
Peter.

There's probably a console command ingame to show you what FPS you're getting, but use Fraps anyway...

Ever since I installed the driver for my Linksys WUSB300N 802.11N wireless desktop adapter my computer does this weird thing. I don't know if it is related or not but the frame rate and audio will slow down and pop for a few seconds every few minutes. This happens even when I am just at the desktop or when I am doing something interactive. It doesn't matter, the whole computer slows down. Any possible solutions? I am willing to download something to track my processes' memory usage and things like that. Thanks in advance

Get a better graphics card, the one that came with it is like Onboard graphics. You have PCI-e x16 slot type. Go to Newegg.com and pick one out that fits your budget and gaming needs.

I'm playing "Marine Sharpshooter" and towards the end of each level the frame rate starts to slow down. I'm running Pent. 3 550MGz with a GeForce 2 m/x 400 on a gateway pc with 128 mb ram and I have 2.5 gb of free space. Do I need to upgrade?? and if so what are the newest or best video cards? Also I'm running Windows ME.
 

A:slow frame rate

gates,

You can perhaps do some basic 'housekeeping' to your pc before rushing out to upgrade.

Make sure you hard disk is defragged and then do a scandisk.

Ensure that all apps running in the background have been closed down.

Regards upgrading - you could perhaps double your Ram to 256mb that would boost performance in other tasks as well.

With respect to getting a new graphics card - what is your realistic budget ? If you can state that then you can perhaps get some recommendations from others based on what has worked for them.

Just for reference - both my systems are Athlon 2600 based. One has 256 mb Ram and a cheap GeForce 440 card which allows me to run games .... only at lower settings. The other has 512 mb Ram and has a Radeon 9500 card thats been overclocked to allow much better gameplay.

In the meantime you might care to browse here :

And click 'Graphics Cards' in the left column as there are reviews and benchmark tests on cards across the board from budget to high end.

Frame Rate issues can be caused by the following issues.
1. Check the temperature of your graphics card. If it is overheating it will shut down slowly ( self preservation )and you may have to grind out your quests at 5 - 7 FPS. Go here and download this free heat monitor.www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php -> A good card temp is well below 100C
2. If you have a new grasphics card and it is rated for SAY 350 watts. Check your system, if your power supply is only 300, then you will have slow framerates. Also you could risk damaging your card.
In world of warcraft a good Frame Rate should be between 55 - 60 FPS if you have the appropriate Graphics Card.

A:Stuck frame per second rate

You have enabled vsync in your video settings? (Windows or in-game)

Also, 60 FPS is just fine and there is absolutely no point in trying to get more - your monitor would be unable to display those frames and you aren't able to see them. You would only stress your CPU and GPU, wasting power and generating heat.

Welcome to the forums Brad!

60 FPS with an 8800 GT is good, especially in DDO (I have both myself). 20 seems a little low, can't say why, it could be a combination of factors which are causing this. It sounds like you've got the latest drivers. Maybe rolling back the driver may have some impact if the latest ones are not performing well.

You can download the 163 driver here: ForceWare Release 163

I wish I could give you a magic bullet to fix things. You might also try adjusting the settings within DDO itself.

Let us know how things work out for you.

I've been suffering with low frame rate for games such as world of warcraft, frozen throne, etc. The low frame rate only comes when there is alot of action on my screen.
For example my FPS is around 30-40 in WoW normally, but when i do raids with 40 ppl it drops down to 3-4FPS and is unplayable. I tried almsot everything possible and I know alot of ppl are suffering from this =/

anyways, here are my infos
any helps or suggestion will hlep alot =)
 

A:Low Frame Rate on most games

Well, it sounds like something as simple as having the graphics quality settings too high. If there are fewer objects to render on the screen, the graphics card can handle them better, which is why you're not lagging when there are few people around.

Try lowering the settings of you games to find a nice balance between quality and performance. You'll have smoother gameplay, but the graphics won't be quite as nice. Otherwise, upgrading the graphics card is the solution.

Any ideas why the frame rate is only 10 per second when using yahoo? Thanks in advance for any help given.

Just wanted to know what is the pc equivalent of the processor in the ps2 and xbox that would produce the same frame rate?

I'm using windows xp home edition. I have 768 megs of rdram, a geforce 2 mx 400 video card with 64 megs of vram, and a 1.7 ghz pentium 4 processor with SSE2. I have the latest video drivers and the latest version of direct x (8.1). For some reason, when I run a game or program that uses direct 3d (such as tony hawk 2 or diablo 2), the frame rate is pretty bad no matter what the resolution or rendering quality is. Games that use open gl run perfect. Even for games that have support for both open gl and direct 3d (like halflife), open gl works perfect and direct 3d runs bad. I've fiddled around with the direct 3d settings and nothing seems to have any effect. I've tried pretty much everything including scanning with norton 2002 with the latest virus definitions and i have no idea what's wrong.

Hi, lately I've been getting really low frame-rate and performance when I play Battlefield 3 online. The games start smooth but after about 3-5 minutes it starts getting unplayably laggy and stuttering. All the graphics settings are on lowest.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250

I get low frame-rate after playing NFS Most Wanted for about 5-10 minutes too. Any suggestions or recommendations please?

Hey guys,

my computer is usually able to process most games without any frame rate issues yet, on certain games such as Counter Strike: GO and Saints Row The Third, my frame rate drops dramatically. Even when I put the game on its lowest graphic settings, it still has trouble running the game. My specs are:

CPU: AMD FX(tm)-4100 Quad-Core Processor
CPU Speed: 3.6 GHz Performance Rated at: 10.80 GHz
RAM: 8.2 GB
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD7700 Series
DirectX version: 11.0
Free Disk Space: 848.8 GB

If you could recommend an upgrade on a certain area or just give me some advise I will be extremely thankful.
Thanks for your time

Alright, heres the issue i bought an ATI 1600 about two years ago...when i went to go play COH or Sim city 4 im getting 20 - 10 fps ...yes yes i have read the other threads and nothing has helped if someone could pleaseeee help me i beg ive had this issue for a about a month or two i just want to play my video games again

please any help will be accepted PLEASE!
 

A:ATI x1600 512 mb Frame Rate Issue

if the card is 2 years old, it may be dieing a slow death

but from my experience, the cards that died on me were instant deaths (mostly due to the fan failing and the gpu overheating.)

as for helping you any further, i think you would need to provide more information on to what/why/when and stuff.

"Nvidia3" is that your mother board?
athlon 3000 (assuming its single core)
2gb memory (1x2 or 2x2, also what frequency)
ATI 1600

i honestly wouldnt expect much more than 20 fps with those games with that setup.
im not bashing your setup, but if you have extra cash, you could build a much better system for very little money. ($400 or so) just the basics.

good luck and hope to hear more of what could have caused this problem

A:Frame rate drop and CPU overheat

The move alone can have caused the problem.
It can be a fan's connector that has come loose or a fan got damaged or the heatsink has come loose from the CPU.

I'm not sure when this started, but I am positive it didn't do this before...

When a flash video or something is played after a while, my computer sounds like it's fans are going into overdrive. It goes from low regular fan hum, to a bit louder, then to very loud. During this third stage, my frame rate dives down, from around 30-40 to 5-10, then after 2 or 3 minutes, jumps back up to it's normal rate. It'll periodically do these dives every 5 or so minutes, lasting 2-3 minutes again, then going back to normal, until I finally stop.

This is not just in flash. It also occurs when running things like Adobe After Effects and most games.

Does anyone know of any fixes for this?

A:Periodic Frame Rate Dives

Give us your specs. RAM, Processor speed, Video Card, etc
It could also be overheating. Blow out all fans with compressed air especially the processor fan and Heat Sync.
Go to the Event Viewer and see what process or application is causing the crash.

Hello I just recently bought a LG LE5500 55" LED TV for my media center setup. I have noticed that whenever I play videos (HD and SD) the frame rate is up and down. I use XBMC for my videos but it does this with all my media players. This only happens on my PC. I used FRAPS to see what the frame rate was doing and it's a steady 24 fps what a movie should be. I'm using a HDMI connection with a NVIDIA GXT 460. Everything was fine on my old TV (42" Sharp LCD).

Is this the TV or the computer's problem? Can anyone help?

Welcome to 3dspotlight forums but please use meaningful non-pleading topics

Does it drop and stay at 30/50? Or just flicker between that and higher levels?
What resolution are you running CS in?
Is this problem only visable in CS?
Do you have antialiasing or antistropic filtering switched on in the OpenGL or DirectX drivers? Infact which are you using in CS?
If your not using OpenGL I suggest trying those.
What motherboard are you using? Is it SDRAM that you have?

When posting problems like this its useful to have the whole picture as strange things like motherboard chipset problems can often be the cause. Without a full picture forum members could run round in circles guessing at what the guilty component is when it would be plainly obvious if we had the complete details...

Where my laptop looks fine at 30fps with few stutters as long as it maintains the 30fps. Why does it look so much different on my pc rather than my laptop .Could it be the monitor or driver settings.

Get a new videocard. That's where the bottleneck is. But make sure your power supply can supply enough consistent power.

If you wanna keep your current card cranking down the video settings to about the minimum might squeeze out some more although I imagine your already have them set pretty low.

Yeah, tried disabling Vsync/triple buffering to increase frame rate past monitor refresh rate, though unfortunately I still experienced the problem. The only time that I was able to produce higher FPS without Vsync on, as compared to when Vsync was on, is when I was facing an empty wall with no other objects in view, it would shoot up to about 80-90, though the performance in general was pretty much the same if Vsync would of been on.

Appreciate the help though.

I am new to MEGUI. I can't find any option here to change the frame-rate. An option appears while creating AVS Script but that's not changeable.

So, how can I change my videos Frame Rate while encoding with MEGUI?

I've not used it. But if you are using generic templates or settings based on TV specs, then the fps is fixed. Just a thought.

Hi all,

I would to start off saying that I hope I've posted this thread in the correct section.

Since some time, I've been having problems playing SP and MP games. For example, just a few minutes ago I was playing CS:GO with around 200fps (I know the human eye only sees about 25fps; and I always disable VSYNC since it's of no use to me). Suddenly, the frame rate dropped to 100fps. That wouldn't bother me if there wasn't such an awful lag. It feels like everything is delayed by one second - it just doesn't feel like 100fps at all, more like 10fps. This happens in other games as well, e.g. Far Cry 3. I have absolutely no clue as to how to fix this.

My computer specs are:

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
16GB RAM @ 1333MHz
Intel i7-2600k @ 3.40GHz
Nvidia Geforce 590GTX 3GB

Ok so I'm having some problems with AAE. Basically I just downloaded the trial for AAE CS3 Pro, their most recent version. I decided to download the trial to see if it was right for me. Unfortunately every time i import a file from my movies collection, which is generally an old movie i made in windows media player format it plays at a pathetic 18 frames per second, and slows down per effect i put on. What i need to be hitting is 30 frames per second, as it has told me is real time. The program requires at least one gigabyte of RAM, i have 1.5, and another RAM stick uninstalled(might be bad). So thanks, hopefully i can get this to work, with your help, by monday. Media project due thursday =(

Do you have the latest drivers for your video card?

You should also be somewhat careful playing games, since laptops (I assume you have a laptop since it's running a Radeon Express card) were not really designed for gaming. WHen you play, make sure there's enough space under and around the laptop for the cooling fans and vents to get access to cool air, otherwise it will heat up very quickly.

I've been having problems with TF2's frame rate since I bought it about a month ago. When there's more than about 16 people playing, the frame rate drops to about 9FPS. Even playing with only a few people or even alone it can drop randomly to 13~20FPS. In very small rooms it's at a decent 30~50FPS. I meet all of the required system requirements and all but one of the recommended requirements. I have a Presario with an AMD Athlon XP 3000 processor at 3GHz, a gig of RAM, an NVidia 6200 video card, running Windows XP, using a 1024x768 resolution, and a 500GB brand new hard drive. I tried lowering the resolution, that didn't help. I set all the details to as low as they could go, still doesn't fix anything. Any suggestions?

TF2 doesn't run smoothly on anything but 1000$+ computers at any graphical settings. I may just get 80 FPS without VSync when doing nothing with lowest settings, 65 on highest. In action it's 20-40 at any settings.
There's really nothing to do with a low-end computer and a horribly programmed game.

If so thats low and that why the game doesn't run that well. Do you have any other games and how do they run.

Since I don't have digital videos, but only VHS...I can't use a firewire card to capture them. And I understand that the capture speed my HDD is capable of is important in not "dropping frames" in the capture process.

I've been told(but not how to do it) that VirtualDub's Benchmark file can run a test on my HDD and tell me this.

Does anyone know how to configure or set up the Benchmark utility to get that test info?

A:Severe frame rate issues and 2nd rail 3.3v drops to 3.28v

Also realize that Crysis does have a DirectX 10 path of the game which do provide some visual improvements, but at the cost of some very measurable performance. You can see the improvements by mousing-over the images on this page:
http://webpages.charter.net/bliss/

As you can see on this set of benchmarks (which have come up for both NV and ATI with newer drivers), DX10 mode does trail DX9 mode of the game:

Can anyone tell me how to fix Delta Force 2. After I play for a short time the frame rate starts to slow down and everything is out of sync. I have a Gateway with Pent III 550 MHz and a Geforce 2 MX 400 and I have downloaded the patch and defraged the system.

There should have been something like this supplied in the box with your card.

Also, what PSU are you using. That should have at least one of these 6 Pin PCI-E connectors.

Hi I ve spent the last two hours browsing endless internet forums trying to find a solution to increase my frame rate Although I m not foreign to computers etc I am out of my depth when dealing with graphics So I decided to get some individual advice in the hands of experts Basically I play Pro Evolution Soccer loads and I m trying to get frame confusion! Increase for rate gaming/drivers/general it to run at the optimum frame rate so it displays better on the TV I output my laptop via s-video to the TV for playing I noticed the Frapps program being mentioned so I downloaded that to find that my FPS was - in the game I think my computer can do HZ so surely the FPS can be boosted to around FPS But I d be happy even if the FPS was nearer fps I ve seen Vsync being mentioned in various forums but I don t know how to disable that or even if it is beneficial The thing is I m a bit confused with the drivers stuff and all I can find is in quot Display quot which is quot Plug and Play Monitor on Mobile Intel R GM Express Chipset Family quot Also briefly read that increasing virtual memory will affect FPS so set that at mb now I m not sure what info you need or even how to obtain it but I guess I can give the System Properties stuff Computer Genuine Intel R CPU T GHz GHz MB of RAM Physical Address Extension Any help is VERY greatly appreciated Thanks Wiseman nbsp

A:Increase frame rate for gaming/drivers/general confusion!

Your monitor doing 60Hz is just the refresh rate. When playing games with v-sync enables your framerate will not go higher than your refresh rate which is 60Hz (hence won't go higher than 60fps). If you disable v-sync (won't necessarily increase performance if you have low framerates already) than your framerate can go higher than the refresh rate (virtually unlimited) for even smoother gameplay BUT you get what is called horizontal tearing which can kinda suck in a lot of games.

To reduce tearing you can enable triple buffering. All it does is render both second the third frames while the first is being displayed. but some issues can come from this such us the third frame might be displayed over the second. Although this is rare (at least for me)

In your case your running an old Intel with a rather crappy graphics card. You can try overclocking your CPU but I don't think it will help much. You PC (no offence) is rather crap when it comes to performance. The only real viable chance of geting higher framerates is to buy a new PC, or at least get a more powerful graphics card. But your CPU being at 1.6GHz will be a bottle neck for it.

Your pretty much screwed. Buy a new PC, make sure its custom built as custom builds are the best (You know what your getting).

EDIT: Sorry if spelling is off. I got up REAL early to get the papers from the garage and am really tired.

I have pinpointed the primary source of my graphics card's coil whine as high fps. In some applications such as crysis, I get upwards of 4000 fps in the intro screens, causing my graphics card to sound like its a dying rat. Obviously this is completely unnecessary...is there a program or feature of catalyst that allows me to limit the fps across all programs?

Thanks

A:Limit Frame rate across all programs? (high fps causing coilwhine)

Turn on vsync in the graphic card's control panel.

Hi, I tried running Left 4 Dead with the following key components:

Intel E6300 @ 2.8GHZ
Kingston 2gb DDR2 667mhz
Geforce 8400GS 512MB 450mhz
Cooler Master 500WATTS PS

However, I have very unstable frame rates (yes I have installed the latest drivers for my mobo and the gpu) even when I choose the video settings to very low. I have tried running on Can You Run It? and it passed the recommended requirements easily. I have tried the game on my previous computer with the following key components:

Intel E8400 @ 3.0GHZ
Kingston 2gb DDR2 667mhz
Geforce 8800GT 512MB 640mhz
Antec Earthwatts 500WATTS

With the above parts, I could run the game smoothly even at the highest settings. The only difference I see in these 2 computers are the GPU and the processor in which the first com isn't very far behind...so pros, please help me on this! Thanks.

Both cards arent great performers, L4D isnt an old game, I'd guess you may be getting what 30 fps, maybe?

Hi, I have a laptop with these specs:

Acer Aspire 5520:

Dual Core AMD Turion64x2 Processors

Geforce 7000m 512 MB GPU

3 Gigabytes of RAM

XP Professional

I am getting really bad frame rates with Splinter Cell Double Agent.

Anybody got any ideas?

I think my graphic chip is good enough to play it.
Thanks,

A:Solved: Splinter Cell Double Agent - Bad frame rate ---HELP! :(

"*Supported Video Cards at Time of Release

Those are the supported cards for Splinter Cell: Double Agent. As you can see, not even the desktop version of graphics card is supported. The only thing I can suggest is turning your settings way down, but even that may not work. The 7000m is a pretty low-end card.

Hi guys,
I have installed gta4 on my m/c that is having intel C2Q8200 cpu+2gb ddr2 ram+evga 8600gt(1024ddr2).
The os is xp sp2, i've got rmn 40 error, and with a registry patch i'm able to play the game, but the fact is inspite of metting recommended requirements for the game, even on 800x600 resolution with everything lowest, i am getting fps no more than 15 on avg.
Is it due to the fact the xp sp3 can resolve the problem, or anything else.
the new thing is that i got a samsung 2233sw 22in monitor, but the resolution i have set is 800x600 only.
Even crysis warhead is performing well with 4x antialiasing on the same system.
Should i get the sp3 upgrade, or my m/c can give this much only.
Please comment on this.
 

A:GTA4 on XP SP2 very poor frame rate, Q8200 + Nvidia 8600gt

Gta 4 was a real pain in the *** to run.

Its bad programming, not your pc.

I would personnaly say you are at your limit. Ensure you have the game fully patched up to date.
