Great computer, horrible performance



  • Windows 7
    Alienware M14xR2
    Intel Core i7-3610QM
    CPU @ 2.30GHz
    Ram 12.0 GB
    64 bit
    Video Card Nvidia GeForce GT 650M,

    So when I play Chivalry and enter a brawl with more then one player, the FPS goes down. I even have my video card on high-performance, but I still get bad performance. Help anyone?



  • What sort of fps we talking here? From walking around to fighting. And I am guessing you play maxed out on 1080p?



  • DxDiag.txt prease.



  • Noob question….

    How do I get the DxDiag.txt? :(



  • since your running Win7… click on start menu and on the SEARCH FILES BAR at the bottom type in dxdiag and press enter. Under SYSTEMS tab, bottom right there s button thats called SAVE ALL INFORMATION. Click and save file.



  • Is this another case of Chivalry defaulting to the OP’s integrated GPU(HD4000) instead of his GT650m? I feel like it is. Right click desktop, open nvidia control panel, and create a profile for Chivalry (Steam/steamapps/chivalrymedievalwarfare/Binaries/Win32/udk.exe. And set it so it uses your GT650m.



  • Alright, here’s the DxDiag.

    @venomblade, I already did that, but it’s still lags. Though I might check it later.

    Yeah, I would double check this. Also, what version Nvidia drivers are you running? The DxDiag doesn’t say.



  • YOU CAN TRY THIS… I FOUND IN ANOTHER FORUM

    Driver sweeper has been known to remove important chipset files which will result in errors such as instability. Some users have reported that the sweeper software removes “False positives” and may cause the user issues when trying to install software such as drivers. The error usually reports that an .ini file is damaged. Over long term use of driver sweeper, it could cause several underlying issues which will do more harm than good.
    This guide is an alternative, which removes all the files and registry entries that need to be removed for a successful uninstall. This is useful for upgrading/downgrading drivers or switching to another brand of card.
    Guide (ATi-AMD)
    Do not use this guide if you have an AMD CPU/Motherboard as you may destroy required chipset files.

    2. Uninstall the Catalyst Install manager (Express Uninstall)

    3. Reboot the computer and log back into windows as normal

    The next part of the guide will remove all ATi/AMD files and folders from the computer.

    The next part of the guide will remove registry entries left by the AMD drivers.
    15. Close everything down and go back to your desktop

    16. Click start, then type “regedit”.

    17. Click “HKEY_CURRENT_USER” and extend the folder

    18. Click “Software” and extend the folder

    37. Close down regedit and empty your recycle bin

    38. Undo the folder options change to hide the hidden folders

    39. Reboot

    40. Install your AMD/Nvidia drivers and reboot

    (Remember, if you look in some of the folders mentioned in this guide but don’t have any AMD/ATi folders, just move to the next appropriate step. This means the uninstall option has removed such files for you. But as we know, the uninstaller still leaves a lot of things behind)
