20-25 fps always - fix?

Discussion in 'F1 2010 - The Game' started by Ivan Gjorgjievski, Nov 20, 2010.

  1. I get only 20-25 fps top on every possible resolution and quality settings. Now i am on 1680x1050 with everything on high/ultra and still it's 21fps all the time..

    i have AMD Phenom 9500+
    GTS 450
    4GB Ram
    360gb+500gb hdd

    Is there a workaround or a tweak for this? I am not even sure if i am using DX11, because recently i went from 9600GT to Geforce GTS450, and not noticed any big changes.. Although the windows assessment tool showed 0.4 performance upgrade on the graphics.

    any help?
  2. I think is a processor bottleneck... I have a dual core to 3,6ghz and a gtx470 and have the same problem. I will upgrade to a q9550 soon and I hope this fix that issue.

    who cares Premium

    Phenom X4 955
    Benchmarkaverage min_fps="53.615280" av_fps="62.646416"
    And in normal gameplay 60-80 fps
    All settinga Ultra.

  4. I wouldn't say it's the CPU, more likely the RAM. OP is using DDR2, whilst the kids above has DDR3. Most people blame either the CPU or GPU, but memory really shouldn't be discounted. Data can't be processed as fast as the CPU/GPU can handle if the RAM has a throughput of half.
  5. I doubt its the ram too. im running ddr3 at 1880 mhz and im stuck at 30 fps max.

    phenom x6 1055t OC'd to 4ghz
    ddr3 1880mhz
    ati 5770 1000core/1400memory
    at 1920x1080 ultra across the board

    30 is playable and i by no means am complaining but its odd that some people can run 90fps while us with newer computers cant
  6. In your case MemorbaleC, it's the GPU that's holding you back. My GPU is rated on the same tier as yours (GTX260 & ATI 5770 Tier 6), and I can only get a maximum of 30FPS, with much inferior CPU & RAM. Looking around on the internet, that's the sort of frame rate I should come to expect on DX9/Ultra/1024, so you should get a similar frame rate because although you've got higher hardware, you're running at a higher resolution, which affects frame rates.

    In order to boost FPS, I'd say it''s in this order:
    - GPU
    - CPU
    - RAM

    However, sometimes you need to upgrade from the bottom to remove the lowest "bottleneck".

    It's like having a Red Bull & McLaren for your GPU & CPU respectively, but only having a HRT for your RAM. Your RAM(HRT) is going to hold you back, so you need to upgrade to a similar level of your GPU & CPU. In F1 terms, a Ferrari :p
  7. try also to use dx9 because it gives you about 20 fps more in every setting.
    u can change it in the document hardware_settings_config in the directory Documents/My Games/FormulaOne.
    just change <directx forcedx9=“false“ /> into <directx forcedx9=“true“ /> and save the document.
    this helped me too.
  8. His GPU is DX10, so it should already be on DX9 mode.
  9. I think it's more likely OS.
  10. ok then forget about what i wrote ;)
  11. He's most likely on a Windows platform no earlier than XP, so it wouldn't make that much of a difference because they're all built on the same NT kernel.

    The possible performance affect I could think of, apart from DX, is the amount of memory Vista/W7 requires in comparison to XP, but even then it should be paged to the hard drive before the game loads, so wouldn't really affect the frame rate.
  12. i have AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+, GF 9600 GT and with all maxed (1440x900, all detail maxed) i habe 19-20fps. With lower resolutions and details i had max avg. 25 fps. Probably cpu is bottleneck for my GPU :/
  13. Other way round. Your CPU is better than mine (I have 4600+) but I have the better graphics card (GTX260). I can get a higher frame rate than you, so I'd say it's your GPU. Nvidia x600 cards used to be mainstream, x800+ used to be for hardcore gaming.
  14. I have at all high, but postprocess medium, in average around 20fps in benchmark.
    And my resolution in game is 1024*768
    CPU: e6600 3.0Ghz 2core
    GPu: GTX 260
    Mem: 4GB Corsair XMS2 800MHz 4-4-4-12
    OS: WinXP 32bit
    Idle CPU before starting almost at 99%
  15. In you case is CPU and memory. This game needs CPU bandwith (no clock) so for me is clearly that. My brother has a gtx260 with an AMD quad core modern processor and get 60fps average. Memory 4gb and goes to 1333 (bandwith) as processor.
  16. gts450 and 5770 are dx11
    and i agree that is my bottleneck (fixing soon with a second 5770)

    running W7

    but that doesn't change the fact that its 30-45 fps on all low or all

    this game is just not properly optimized for pc but like i said before 30 is playable especially considering its a stable 30(and i love it sooo)
  17. Hm, I also have 1333 on CPU, but memory) I tried to use dif variations, but can't up mem freq to 1333 to work synchronously.
  18. Your post earlier on says you have DDR2 800. I doubt you'll be able to overclock your memory to 1333 (thats' DDR3 speed)
  19. In this case, I wrote about CPU's FSB and also wrote that my ddr2 mem doesn't reach 1333)
    I think all is right.
  20. I have added more RAM , now i have 8 GB of Ram and the game just runs smooth. :) more than before. DDR 3.
