thelvinaer Posted August 12, 2006 Share Posted August 12, 2006 I just bought a new HP amd dual core processor computer with a better graphic card than I had before and with more memory, but now the graphics lag very very badly... I downloaded the driver from amd as follows AMD Dual-Core Optimizer - 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. and downloaded all updates for the game and I am still having the same graphic lag issue. much much worse than the "idiot dance" issue I was having on the lesser system. I did see something about disabling one of the cores but I do not know how to do that. and I thought downloading that update would fix the problem where I would not need to disable the core.
