Windows 7: Advanced gaming PC, but has FPS drops on Crysis 2?

Advanced gaming PC, but has FPS drops on Crysis 2?

So I was playing Crysis 2 on my new PC, yet encountered some serious framerate drops.

Initially, I ran it in all settings maxed out with some FPS drops, then extreme with less, but still had them, then very high and still had drops, finally I set everything to minimal and that reduced it to almost none.

These are my specs:

Processor: AMD FX 8350 4.5 GHz

Graphics card: AMD 7970 HD 3 GB

RAM: 16 GB

PSU: 850 watt


For a list of background processes:

Atieclxx.exe
Atiesrxx.exe
Audiodg.exe
CCC.exe
csrss.exe
csrss.exe
dllhost.exe
dwm.exe
explorer.exe

Anyone know why I'm encountering lag? o_O

Crysis 2 does not have an AA setting from what I've seen.

Not that I have done any research but I have often wondered why so many SVhosts on my resources as well.

Perhaps your video/audio drivers got corrupted somehow when you installed C2? being that it doesn't take long to install, I would do a clean install of both drivers and test again.

Frame rate fluctuation is normal, still playable is the real issue, give some numbers, should be laughably great on that rig, it is on mine.

svhost uses multiple threads, that is normal, not an issue. 8)

OP processes wise, I think you could dump the 3 T's, SearchIndexer, and not sure what the ViakarakeSrv is, so maybe on that one.

I just picked the game (Crysis 2) up for 5 bucks.

Anyway Crysis is known to be a system tasker so it's no surprise you suffered frame drops when maxing settings.

There could also be a number of reasons for lag so the best thing to do is to experiment with settings and whatnot. You may also have to play with driver settings as well. Patches also play a role.

I've not installed the game yet so I don't have any settings advice at the moment.

Good luck.

Ah, okay.

Yeah, I'll try that. :P

Well, if you get any settings advice, be sure to let me know!

Well, I don't have any program to track my FPS (suggestions?), I've been going from what I've visually seen. On ultra, the system normally runs at I'd SAY 40 FPS (maybe more, I have no idea), but then it really drops to around, I'd guess 15-20, it's moderately playable when it drops, but headshots can be tricky.

Yeah, I figured that was probably normal, because there was always several on my other PCs as well. xD

Alright, thanks!

Hmm... I don't know, all my other games run just as good as they did prior to installing it.

You could us afterburner or fraps to view fps. With your rig you should easily play with higher settings, here are my settings and it plays smooth for me

Well I just ran the first level on Ultra with no problems, but I'm quite sure that'll change as the intensity level ramps up with more action. One thing I will be doing, and something I do anyway is turn off shadows. Other than being nice to look at, I really don't see a need for them in games.

Anyway you can check my system specs to see what I'm running.

Alright. Thanks for the help!

Turning overdrive on seems to have improved the gameplay.
