Stuttering still after the Patch...

Recommended Posts

Specs:

 

Intel Core i-7 CPU 2.50 GHz

8GB of RAM

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M

Windows 8

 

So before the Patch, I would be able to run the game smoothly for a good 25-30 minutes before the sounds start cutting out and my frame rate goes drastically low, now after the patch, I could go a good 35-40 minutes before my sound starts cutting out and my frame rate goes drastically low.

 

I have tried many things, switching to Direct X 10.1, then Direct X 10, disabled Nvidia streaming or whatever, going into NVIDIA control panel and tweaking the settings (disabling shadow cache, etc), even tried disabling hyperthreading, but nothing.

 

The same old result... every time, pls help, I just want to play the game. :(

Hi,

 

That sounds like there is a thermal issue with your laptop itself. It's down-clocking (slowing down) your processor and/or graphics chip to prevent irreversible hardware damage. Have you tried downloading a temperature monitoring tool like MSI afterburner and checking your temps whilst in game?

 

I used to get the same thing with my old laptop several years ago playing games, a cooling fan pad did help matters because the laptop had small air intakes on the base.

It's not a temp issue. It's a memory leak. Those who are having these can check their ram climbing up slowly and then at some point they start getting stutter after 20-30mins. Time depends on how much ram you have. It's because of the leakage the hdd starts having hard time computing all that data so fast.

It's not a thermal issue, because this happens on desktop PCs(not related to specs) too for many-many people. The game has a memory leak problem (it uses more and more and more memory as you play) and when the memory gets full, it starts to stutter, and sound gets cut off, etc...
