I'm not sure why this is happening, but during space battles and in the galaxy view I'm getting extremley low fps like 1-2 fps on my desktop rig. The driver settings are all set to let the application decide. In game it doesn't matter what settings I choose I get low fps and I don't think I should be. This is and one other game GTA IV where I get really bad frame rates. I've tried the steam support forums and no one seems to be able to help. Any suggestions?
My system specs are as follows
Windows 7 64bit
AMD Phenom 9500 quad core
MB XFX MD-A72P-7509 BIOS American Megatrends Inc. ver. 080015
8 gigs of OCZ ram part # OCZ2N800SR2G
power supply LSP Ultra 650W ATX power supply
Graphics Chipset Saphire AMD Radeon HD 7850 OC Edition 2 gigs of GDDR5 ram. running Driver Packaging Version 9.01.8-121202a-150272E-ATI beta drivers on clean install. I have run earlier driver versions with same issue.
Toshiba 24 LED display Model: 24SL410U running at 1080p @ 1920x1080 60Hz
HDD ST3500630A ATA & WDC WD3200AAKS-00L9A0 ATA
All drivers are up to date.
Virus scan and malware scan report clean using MSSE and Malware bytes and Search & Destroy
PS. My Toshiba laptop running win7 64bit, Intel i5 with 8 gigs of ram and a integrated gpu gets close to 60-70fps with the same graphic settings.
anybody else ever had issues with a rig close to my setup. I've googled my brains out trying to find a fix and can't find anything.
Any help in any direction would be greatly appreciated.
