GTA IV w/ iCEnhancer 2.0 on UBER RIG runs SLOW!


Recommended Posts

As the title suggests, I recently installed GTA IV with iCEnhancer 2.0 and have my custom cars with the road textures and enhanced blood textures along with custom weapons.


The game runs around 35 - 40FPS @ 2560x1600 which is absolutely pathetic since my rig should be able to destroy any game thrown at it!


I'm running a 990X OC'd to 4.41GHz and FOUR (4) EVGA GTX-580 Classified (3GB) in 4-way SLI.


How on earth am I getting only 40FPS when I can run BF3 @ 7680x1600 at 60+FPS!?!?


Someone, please help me optimize the settings so that I can get smooth framerates and play this goddamn game like it was meant to be played!


Also, for some reason, the game takes FORVER to load the save (usually like 3 minutes). And occasionally, I get missing textures after playing for a while but I have 12GB of RAM @ 1600MHz so I don't think that's the issue.

Disable SLI. GTA IV hates SLI, so if a user has 40FPS on one 580 and a 990X, then you will have 40FPS on 4way SLI and a 990X. Adding multiple cards makes almost no difference in this game.


This section is for questions about the unmodified versions of the game only.

You can even lose FPS due to SLI.


Also, GTAIV is a 32 bit application so it can map only so much memory. Having 4TB of RAM won't make a difference. You can try using memrestrict to help out with memory management related problems and also lowering the settings a bit would probably be a good idea.

Why are you actually whining if you have 40 fps with iCEnhancer?

I'm playing vanilla IV with 40 - 50 fps and am more than happy with it rolleyes.gif

People are used to playing 60+ fps. GTA IV (or any PC GTA game) shouldn't be running more than 40 anyways because doing so exacerbates timing-related glitches (like the ending mission).
