Bad Cpu usage on windows XP
Well, the game looks good, have nice controls, but the fps are very bad. Im playing on a modest pc:
Core2Quad Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz
Geforce 8800GTS 512 G92 using forceware 258.96
4GB DDR2 800
Windows XP SP3 with everything updated
res 1280x768 everything on max (physx off)
The average fps on benchmark and in-game is 33fps, but constantly dips to 20fps (some parts got 15fps) what is very low.
My complain is: The recommended requirement is a quad core, but the game is only using 1 core at near 100% usage, 2nd at 5%, 3rd at 20% and 4th at 5%, no matter the place, ingame or benchmarking.
Ive asked my friend to test on its win 7 and the game is using all 4 cores at near 70% usage.
Ive tried lowering all the settings to low, disabling AA and Ambient Occlusion, but the fps remains the same. Its a proof of a cpu bottlenecking!
Its a XP bug or marketting to kill win XP??
I want repplies cause im planning to buy this game, but optimized.
Play it on Windows 7 man...On XP you can use only 2GB of RAM....
If i have only 2 GB of Ram,should i use Windows 7?
For you it dosent matter.....It will use whole 2GB
Yeah bro i know that, but the game is using only 1.2GB Ram.
My complain is about this bad cpu usage. I'd like to see its using at least 70% on all 4 cores, like my friend on win 7.
C'mon 2K, give some more lifetime to XP and optimize your engine.
Make me happy and i'll make you too (buying the game)
