View Full Version : 8800GTX/ Cpu limited even at 1920X1200!

I guess it's time for the 680i and a 6600.
With my previous 7950GX2 w/95.97's my FEAR score was:
36,60,145 All max settings SS off. With the 8800GTX I'm getting:
37,72,175 average. Same settings.
I knew it was cpu limited but didn't realize it is substantially limited at 1920X1200---Unless the 97.02's suck for FEAR.
The minimum fps is unaffected by the 8800GTX :(

Anyone else experience this?

Just pump more AA and AF into it, try to get it more GPU demading.

I'm even CPU limited at 2048x1536 16aa 16af in allot of apps. This is a great thing. Once I go 680i W/quad core or whatever in 2-3 months instead of being a small CPU upgrades we should see a huge increase in GPU speed also, more bang for the buck.

I could be mistaken but that dosent sound a CPU limitation .. on my 4800+ QuadSLI i get an avarage of 86fps@1600x1200,4xAA,16xAF.
maybe something else is wrong with your settings.

Curent drivers for the 8800GTX just suck...
