View Full Version : Vista x64 Driver + "Oblivion"

Is anyone else getting choppy or rough movement through heavy foliage in "Oblivion" with the latest Vista x64 driver? I have been using the 158.xx drivers.

I don't have a problem with FPS and movement through said areas is much smoother under XP for whatever the reason.

I don't know what's to blame and it's very noticeable by comparison.

I have 4GB of ram so my system isn't starved.

yep, same exaxt thing for me here and also with 4gb of ram. In fact if you look our systems are very very similar.

Personally I like the overall IQ on XP better with oblivion then I have with Vista64. Its smoother and also I don't get the process has locked pages crash that I sometimes get with Vista64

A wild shot, completely, but have you guys tried setting the affinity to a single-core with Oblivion? Completely in the dark. Just wondering!

Same problem here. Running around outside gives me heavy stuttering. Using 8800 GTX,2Gigs Ram under Vista Ultimate 32bit with 158.45. Thought performance should be a lot better than my X800PRO :confused: everything else is smooooth:)
