Hardware issues playing the gameFollow

#1 Dec 11 2011 at 4:11 PM Rating: Decent
When im playing the game it plays horribly to the point where its unplayable. The animation is very choppy and very laggy. My pc: AMD phenom II 1090T, 8gb ddr3 gskill ram @ 1333mhz, asus matrix hd5870 x2 crossfired, 160gb intel ssd. when playing, the game is only using 10-13% of the processor. its almost as if windows is restricting the games usage of the processor, if the processor was pegged im sure i wouldnt have this problem. In AMD vision i have gpu and cpu overdrive turned on. Ive exhausted all of my ideas, any suggestions? thanks. As a side note, i have no issues with any other games i.e. the witcher 2 and skyrim with graphics settings at the max

The animations are very choppy anyway, but there are a few things you could check.

How much usage are your GPUs getting? I'm not 100% sure about how well crossfire works so you might try adjusting your settings just for XIV to play without crossfire. Personally I have an SLI setup and XIV gets better performance with it off =/

Do you have turbo active? If you aren't sure, it's that feature that downclocks 3 of your cores and boosts the speed of the other 3 cores.

Performance stays the same w/ or w/o crossfire on. Turbo is turned off in the bios and in windows. I tried manually turning all the cores on. Nothing seems to help. This sucks...lol

This game is just really poorly optimized. You should still have more usage on your processor though. If you don't mind me asking, which program are you using to track your usage?

I have a logitech g15 keyboard, one of the utilities w/ it shows ram and cpu usage on the lcd screen, its usually very acurate. I ended up doing a fresh install of windows, only loaded the needed drivers and utilities, and set all my bios settings to default...it sloved the problem. So something in the backround was messing w/ me. Could have been AMD OverDrive or one of the garbage asus utilities i had loaded on my pc. But its 100% better! Thanks for your advice FilthMcNasty.

Only if your settings are too high...

Not saying the game is programed amazingly, because it's not, but at full settings on an appropriate machine it is one of the best looking games this year. And the animations are one of the things that IS amazing because of mocap.

To the OP, the game doesn't really use much of the CPU

*EDIT* Missed the fact you solved your issue... I hate sneaky background problems.

I get choppy frame rates and nameplate jitter on my rig running at standard settings, and my rig is a beast.

False and I'm not sure why you're bent on perpetuating this. Overclocking your CPU speed will net you much better performance than overclocking your GPU.

When I tested this game in beta I had a crappy dual core CPU which, to no surprise gave me huge stutter issues and a frame rate of about 10-20. I ended up buying a quad core I7 processor and now I run the game at a constant 60 FPS. IF your GPU can handle the game but your CPU is sub par, upgrading the CPU will give you a huge boost.

On a quad core proccessor I NEVER see more than 25% usage, while I agree that overclocking the CPU does net some good results in this game (particularly over the 3ghz mark)... it's still not very intensive USAGE wise. Which is what the G15/19 LCD shows. Therefore it is not false information that settings being turned too high could be a culprit. It just turned out that it wasn't the issue for the OP.
