Windows 7: Starcraft 2 Beta Performance

14 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Build 7600
Starcraft 2 Beta Performance


I wonder what had happened...

I use Windows 7 on a MacBook Pro 13" (running on BootCamp)
2.53Ghz P8700
4.00GB (2.72GB usable) RAM
256MB NVidia 9400GM

Before this, I used the Medium settings for graphics (except for the unit portrait, I use 3D) and everything run smoothly

Recently, it run smoothly at early game. After about 2-3 minutes playing, performance drop drastically. Very slow... Same thing occurs when I'm using the low settings...

I don't understand what had happened....

7 x64/ Back-Track 4

Heya! Great to see another SC 2 Junkie out there! I haven't received a beta-key, *yet* so im just playing on a cracked version of the game with a AI. But my settings are all on ultra.
But you can try putting the unit portrait to 2d - for me i don't really care.
But it could also be due to the ram amount which is usable...
Though - my ultra settings are on my new and home made computer!!(I'll be putting up pics soon )
My New Home-Made Computer:
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB 16MB 7200RPM SATA2
Graphics: Dual ATI Radeon HD4870 X2 2GB in Quad-CrossFireX
RAM: 12GB Triple-channel Corsair Dominator: 6 x 2048MB DDR3 1600MHz
Cooling: Water Cooling(self contained) - AWSOME!!!) + Fans
Processor: Intel Core i7 2.66GHz x 4 with HyperThreading 4.8GT/s FSB 8MB cache

Computer Name: (The DDominator!) Rawr!!!

Just signed up for the starcraft 2 beta opt-in. I had to send them my pc specs though. Does anyone think that having the Windows 7 RC rather than a full release OS will lessen my chances?... Not sure :huh:
