Performance issues

#1 Posted by L44 (583 posts) -

My launch Xbox is still chugging along but it seems to really struggle with Halo 4 sometimes, when stuff gets hectic I get terrible framerate issues. Is it possible it's because it's a launch Xbox, for example wasnt Rage supposed to perform better on the Slim? Or is it something else? This is the only game this happens with.

Is it installed to the hard drive? That'll help a lot.

On my year old slim it runs like butter the entire time so it sounds to me like your box starting to kill itself.

I've never seen it hitch up at all and I'm on a pre-hdmi model.

Alright I'll install it and see if that makes it any better.

It could the fact that it is a launch 360. Xenon have had problems, the other revisions (especially the newer motherboards (the Jasper, Valhalla or Corona)) are more stable as far as I know, especially with newer games.

Update: Installling it didnt change much.
