AMD Dual-Core Optimizer Version 1.1.4

Recommended Posts

sarancha

I got solved my graphic lag problem(1 fps) using this utility. Before using this, I thought my vga card(Geforce 8800 GTS 320MB) seems to has performance problem for the GTA IV, but I was wrong. If you are using dual core cpu of the AMD, use this. There is no graphic lag problem any more. I am happy. smile.gif

 

The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer can help improve some PC gaming video performance by compensating for those applications that bypass the Windows API for timing by directly using the RDTSC (Read Time Stamp Counter) instruction. Applications that rely on RDTSC do not benefit from the logic in the operating system to properly account for the affect of power management mechanisms on the rate at which a processor core's Time Stamp Counter (TSC) is incremented. The AMD Dual-Core Optimizer helps to correct the resulting video performance effects or other incorrect timing effects that these applications may experience on dual-core processor systems, by periodically adjusting the core time-stamp-counters, so that they are synchronized.

My specs : AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ / 2GB Memory / Geforce 8800 GTS 320MB / Windows XP with SP3 / GTA IV (no commandline)

To add, this would be for Windows XP only. Probably XP 64 too.

Um.. it says AMD DUAL-CORE optimizer, so..no tounge.gif . However, use AMD Fusion. I use this and it gives me a few FPS boost smile.gif. But keep in mind, AMD Fusion is a beta, AMD hasnt finished the program yet. They said the legit AMD Fusion might be released around late 2009 :S. AMD Fusion is compatible AND a optimizer for Quad AMD CPUs, and i think, I THINK, Dual core CPUs.

You should read before you post. This is more a case of poor programming by Rockstar. They bypassed the Windows API for timing the game, relying directly on the CPU. Also, Windows XP was not programmed with these modern CPUs in mind so that is why we need these fixes. The fixes are already integrated in Vista.

 

The fix is definitely not worthless. This and the CPU drivers help a lot.

Dont be unfair against AMD in this case. Intel DOES need the same fixes, but they are already integrated in Windows. Because of this noone notice the similar-intel-problems...btw. 3rd party? Where? AMD is a third party producer for AMD itself? Dont understand your moaning, sorry....

I am not sure but I think this is what stopped all of my random crashes. However, after I installed this program I added alot of things to the commandline, tried to do everything to fix the game, and now it's fixed. So I am not sure if it was the commandlines or the program. All of my freezes while in cutscenes or after a large load (loading textures in helicopter etc) stopped and now the game is running real smooth, using a file that maximizes the amount of peds and cars (packed EVERYWHERE) along with low settings, really feels like New York or something, despite the huge amount of traffic it runs pretty good on my average computer with a stable 25-40 fps, still get stuttering sometimes though.

Lol, gotta love them fanboys

 

Diss AMD all you want but be aware: if AMD goes down then Intel has a virtual monopoly of the CPU market and can price stuff however they want, enjoy your 1000$ entry level CPUs

 

Just sayin'. sarcasm.gif

I'm using the optimzer since day 1 of gta4 release. It gave me an giant performance boost and solved the freezes even without the patch.

 

With the optimzer Iam able to play with high textures, viewing distance 30 and vehicle density 90 with constand 20+ frames.

 

My specs are: Ahtlon X2 6400+, 3GB Ram and 9600GT 512MB on WinXP32. (with commandline -avaiblevidmem 1.8).

 

 

Without the optimzer I have around 10fps and freezes every 5 minutes.

That's normal. You just have to install it and it writes into the registry. That's all.

Start a new thread with your specs (including OS version) and game settings (including tweaks and command line options).

the optimizer solved my random freezing/slowdown problems. installed it 2 weeks ago and haven't had one problem since. Frame rates didn't change noticably..around 31 FPS, but Im running a non PCI express 2.0 MB. It'll be nice to see what happens when I upgrade to a Core 2 Duo/Quad soon

I just installed the optimizer and I got NO fps-boost what so ever. I tried rebooting and shutting down excess programs on tray but nothing, not a damn thing! It's weird because, just as someone pointed out, there is no indication that the optimizer has been installed. I had to run msconfig to see what programs the computer runs at startup...

Its compatible with Vista too but this proggy doesnt always do as its supposed to do, its supposed to make sure the load is balanced out instead of everything being on just one core.
