Really slow loading time using Core i3

Hi,

 

I have a decent and relatively new laptop with intel Core i3 inside, but the DCS-10 C loads very slowly, even on Low settings.

 

What can I do to load faster? I have a Thrustmaster PC joystick

 

Here are the specs:

 

ACER Aspire V5

 

Windows 8

 

4 gb Ram

 

Intel Core i3 1.5 Ghz.

 

Thanks.

Laptops normally have a slow hard drives with 5400 rpm as opposed to 7200 rpm and more for desktops. Also a 1.5 Ghz CPU is definately not enough for such a CPU-intensive game as DSC... The minimum system requirement listed by ED is a Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz and that is very minimal.

Does your laptop have an SSD? There is a known issue with SSd's and long loading times... Not sure if they have fixed this issue yet or not..

The other big one is the graphics adaptor. If you have an "HD Graphics" card or something higher end (like optimus tech that switches back and forth) you might want to make sure that it is configured to use the higher end graphics card.

 

The 5400rpm HDD is another culprit... also the relatively low processor speeds on the i3 will prevent you from achieving the results of an i3 in a desktop that can be overclocked to 3.5-4 gigs.

Are you saying that getting an SSD won't make DCS load faster and run smoother? I was just thinking about breaking the bank and getting a Crucial M4...

My version of DCS World loads missions etc. much faster from my 2011 OCZ SSD than my 2013 WD Raptor HDD.

Same here, my ssd loads much faster than a standard HDD. The 1.5 gig core i5 with standard laptop drive is probably the culprit.

Yeah, after slapping an SSD in my PC, DCS loads everything about 3x to 4x faster. If there is a DCS buy with SSD's, I haven't seen it. Then again, I tend to not notice bugs as well as some of you do so take these words with a grain of salt ;)
