View Full Version : Randomly dropping fps
10-21-2007, 10:05 PM
Hi all, just finished playing on Suspense and was getting some wierd effect during the game, similar to what packetloss does. However i turned on stat fps and found that 90% of the time i was running at 90fps however it would randomly drop to 40-50 fps and then back up. And yes it was totally random I even tried it just standing still inside.
Core 2 T7200 @ 2.00GHz
2 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GO 7950 GTX
Windows Vista Ultimate 32
Rock CTX Pro Notebook
This is the first time this particular 'error' has occured for me. ALthough i did have a problem yesterday where all fps (menu included) where literally havled consistently. Like the gfx went into power saver mode o.O

Same with me, 90% of the time I run at 50-60 fps but it randomly drops to 20-25 fps a lot of times, and in areas of the map that I was just getting 60fps on a minute ago.

I've noticed when I first fire up UT3, the first match I play usually has great performance. Then after the first match, it drops significantly. Only way to get good performance again is to exit the game and restart it after every match.
This makes me think it is some kind of strange video memory leak problem.

i find that my fps only drop whenever i pull out the flak cannon or the impact hammer (they drop to about 4-10fps :( )
