    HI ~ all of RD members.:wink:

    Yesterday, i had installed GTR-EVO with new Windows 7 ultimate instead of windows XP.

    My PC is little bit old one for Windows 7,
    CPU Q8300 / Ausus p5qse / GTS250...

    I found that GTR-evo with Windows 7 is not faster than before.
    however,it shows some lag and FPS down compare to Windows Xp before.
    I heard the VT is not involved in my CPU Q8300....cheap cpu
    so, it's not better than Xp in case of 32bit program like GTR-evo.

    is there any good idea for my poor Q8300 CPU?

    Revert back to the old OS that didn't give problems?
    New CPU?
    Check if you are running the CPU / GPU on high performance?

    check if all cores works with this game, if not, set affinity manually

    Thanks for answers.

    I did revert to my old OS (XP) with a different hard driver C:
    and my system works on the condition of high performance and did manually affinity on it.

    I heard Intel will issues VT applied Q8300 soon..but have to buy new one.

    Thank you guys:thumbup:
