Low fps, not bound by graphics settings?
I just finished my new PC build, which for the moment is only using the 3570k processor at 3.4GHz with the integrated GPU.
Now I know that the iGPU won't be sufficient for everything, but since it can run 25+ fps at 1080p in games like Skyrim and BF3, and knowing that NS2 is more CPU-limited than graphics, I figured that I might get some decent performance with it.
Unfortunately, when I launch the game everything is slow: the menu feels delayed, and I only get 10-20 fps in the readyroom. Changing the graphics level does absolutely nothing.
Anyone have a similar experience with this chip? I guess I'm trying to figure out why I was getting 30-50 fps at 1080p on an i7-9xx with AMD 58xx card on medium/high, but getting such low fps on an even faster CPU at 1280x1024, especially since reducing the graphics level doesn't improve anything. Any thoughts?
