Question here- with my new processor (4200+ X2 939) I have strange behaviour in FC- FPS is jumping constantly from 25 to 75 or more regardless the settings and causes pretty annoying stutering. I never had this with my previous 3500+ 939. What could be the reason? Reinstall FC?

 

Its a known issue some people have. Search for PROCAFF in these boards. Your PC is swiching LOMAC between CPU's continuously and thats whats causing the issue. Procaff sets in on 1 CPU.

 

In case your wondering, the reason why I dont have more detailed info is because I dont have that issue and I never had to use it.

Thanks a lot mate, all good now :thumbup:

 

Actualy I found out the ultimate fix from AMD- ultimate fix from AMD- AMD Dual core optimizer.

 

Procaff works as well but when you launch FC via HL it wont help- still stuttering. You'll have to connect via IP in this case.

I'm not convinced by multi core for gaming. I switched from a 4200x2 to a 3700, over clocked to 2750Mhz. FPS is now avrage 25-60 using 7800gt sli. Coding muli threaded games is a real problem for developers.

Joined to the Dual Core club with my new Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Socket 939, I wish that ED would take advantage of Multi-Core CPUs in the future.

 

I've heard from some reliable sources that they are taking that idea into consideration...

my Core2 upgrade dilemma bound to LOCKON

 

upgrading might be close and i am having thoughts of going quad. Is there any comperative experience around as to how LOCKON performed from single to dual to quad core systems? If i choose to keep things as budget as possible it will be dual core but for few bucks more it looks like an investment going quad (same performance as dual + some more multithread backup power for future possible needs aka OSes, new games, maybe multicore patch for LockOn series? .... - wishful thinking ...)

 

what the experts have to say? ...

I am running all settings on high and it runs smooth as silk and looks great. Getting 30-37 FPS in the a-10missions I am flying.

The Motherboard is an ASUS Striker Extreme.

I wish I owned this machine.

AMD .. forget about it for now.

 

Dual CPU is great.. when lockon is running on one CPU many other background calculs and services are running on the second cpu this make a great free up cpu to work on Lockon.. ;) going single is just a no go.

 

Look at this, more power than any AMD can give for not much...

adding wood to the fire: I just upgraded my memory modules from 2 GB DDR2 at 800 to 4 GB of 1066DDR2. I noticed a jump in perfomance bigger than the overclock of the CPU from 2.4GHz to 2.66
