Default Re: Everquest 2. I think I may have a partial solution to stuttering.

Had the worst performance ever in blackburrow once. A memory leak brought me down to about 30 frames a minute!

I've stumbled across an interesting thread over at official forums where a 6800 GT owner reported somethign interesting. He gets very low load temps when playing.
I checked this out as many others and it'S true!
My card idles at 56 C and loads at 75 C in HL 2. RTHDRIBL goes a tad higher even.
Now in EQ2 i get a load temp of 66 C!
I know that games stress different parts of the GPU and therefore there's differences in temperatures but this game seems to not stress the GPU at all while rendering choppy framerates!

I did test this with rivatuner. (No shady temperature reading after quitting game)

Give it a go and look for yourself.
To me this indicates that there is something wrong.
