Thanks for any advice, tried pretty much everything and worked out what causes some of the lag, its the graphics card being underused (around 20 percent in gpuz) and downclocking.Its not my cpu as its not being fully used either.|
I can get the demo running somewhat playable now , by setting 16x af in catalyst control center and also setting the aa to super sample and either 4 or 8 times.
Then on fifa config disable msaa and lock to 60 fps and enable vsync.
That taxes the gpu enough to stop it downclocking.
It cant handle replays at 60fps with super sampling but fuck it the game is playable like this.
Still madness when you think my system is probably 10 times the power of the 360 yet cant run fifa as smooth.
I dont know why amd powerplay or whatever its called is doing that in game , seems a retarded feature to me, it should just fully switch off when any game is running, you dont even get any option to disable it without doing some crazy shit which i dont want to mess with.
Wish i had a nvidia card now. Or maybe its just the way fifa is coded(god knows) as pro evo also uses hardly any graphics power but it does not downclock there(checked with gpu z).
Then again i may just have a faulty graphics card, but then surely pro evo and skyrim wouldnt work as well as they do, i wouldnt be able to return it anyway as they would not find any fault.
Oh! the joy of Pc's.
Anyway thanks for any advice.
