Low CPU/GPU usage, low FPS


My system:

GTX Titan


8GB Ram

Windows 10


I still get ~60FPS in most areas, but I get 35-42 everytime I'm in a crowded area (Defiance Bay specially).


So here's what I've already tried:

-Updated drivers

-Updated motherboard BIOS

-Changed processor affinity for testing

-Disabled power saving modes for both GPU/CPU

-Ran stress tests on both and tested other games like Far Cry 4, where usage reached 90% or more

-Compatibility mode (Windows 7, 8) 

-Forced fullscreen with gedosato

-No MSAA, different resolutions

-Verified cache integrity


And nothing. No improvement whatsoever.

Crowded areas are likely to increase the load on the CPU rather than GPU. PoE in my experience will max one core out while using 50% of a second, so setting affinity (and thereby limiting it to one core) is more likely to make things worse. With a Core i7-920 (clocked at 3.4GHz) and SLIed 580GTXes, I see similar FPS rates as yourself - 35-40 in crowded parts of Copperlane, 60 in quieter locations.


However plenty of others have reported worse results in the Why does this game run poorly? so it's probably a fair statement that this game is severely lacking in performance. Hopefully Obsidian will address this once more important bugs are fixed.
