    Effects of CPU On UT 3...

    I'm playing with a All-In-Wonder X800 and a Intel Pentium 4 3.20 Ghz with 1.5 gig ram... Now when I play UT 3 it's eating up the CPU even with ultra low graphix... But the ram only has 75% use... What might happen and why is the ram barely being used?

    The CPU will be utilized more on lower settings, when you up the graphics detail and resolution your graphics card will take the load more.

      Huh... So the lower the settings the more the CPU is used? That's kinda odd... But will it crash with the CPU running really high?

        No, the CPU is able to do less work because your GPU takes over. The CPU just can't process nowhere near as fast as a GPU so it just sticks to doing other important things rather than help out in any graphics processing.

        This is why benchmarks for CPU's are run at lowest settings which takes out the GPU. More the CPU can process information to the GPU the better the game will run.
