Poor 9800PRO performance
speedbird posted a topic in Doom 3System: Asus A7V8X-X (AGP8X) and Athlon XP2600+ Connect3D ATI Radeon 9800 PRO 128mb AGP8X 300W PSU 512mb DDR333 Seagate 160gb Liteon DVDRW and Liteon CDRW onboard sound and ethernet Standard monitor (very high resolution) OS: Windows XP, 100% up to date including SP2 Drivers: all latest including Catalyst DirectX 9.0c Problem: Doom 3 (all current patches and updates installed) Very poor performance (around 30 frames per second or less) at all resolutions and graphics settings. Based on online reviews and tests, I should be achieving around 60fps based on my system specs and medium graphics settings. Anyone any idea what's up with the bloody thing? It's driving me mad. I just don't understand why the performance is so crap. It should be fantastic with a 9800 PRO but is unplayable even with graphics set to low.
