Is someone else having "poor" performance in this game? Since it is a Source game, and seeing I've been able to max Portal 2, L4D2, etc (not to mention, other non-Source games), I feel I should be getting constant 60FPS, or something close to that, with my system, but the game takes HUGE dips in some areas for no apparent reason.
For example, in the first real mission, whenever I'm looking straight to the streets, the FPS go as low as 25. When I enter a smaller area, like the werehouse where I'm supposed to hack the terminals to activate the elevator, the game jumps back to 60 FPS. I wouldn't mind small jumps, from 60 to 45, but from 60 to 25 and back is very noticeable and annoying.
I've tried disabling/changing some of the most demanding options, but they don't seem to affect the performance at all. I get the same jumpy performance with AAx16 and no AA, Very High textures or Low, HDR Full or the other one, shadows or not. A lower resolution doesn't yield any better results either. The only option that did impact performance was Multicore Rendering. With it activated, I was getting 60 to ~40 FPS inside the Temple. With it off, constant 60 FPS inside the temple, though in the first mission, nothing changes.
Last but not least, my specs:
- Windows Home Premium x64
- Q8400 OCemail@example.com GHz
- 4GB RAM 800 MHz
- GTX 460 786MB 800/1600/21000 (w/ 275.33 WQHL)
- Playing at 1920x1080x60
Thanks in advance.
