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

Graphics Driver - ForceWare Beta Version 67.03

I've been testing this evening with a 256MB AGP Aperature (w/FastWrites off) and performance seems to have improved. I am rebooting the system in between tests as I change AA/AF settings and noticed that the stuttering effect sometimes increases with lower graphics settings (4X AA vs 2X AA).

Hmm. Now I am thinking this may also be related to the quality of the network connection. It would be interesting if I could run my tests without being connected to a server.

I have been running some very interesting tests with the 9800 Pro and 6800GT right now.
