I have posted in different German Boards about my problem but after several days noone was able to help me so i take the time to translate my wall of text for you and hope that you can.
I have a Performanceproblem in TERA Online, which is about me getting CPU Spikes between 80-100%. This happens only in TERA and only if i am actually ingame, so i cannot see what is causing this due to the lack of vision on the Task Manager.
These Spikes are causing alot of Stuttering, Framedrops (I will come to this in a minute) and very, very short Freezes.
My CPU in Tera is normaly around this level: 2x 60-80% 2x 30-40% Usage. So it is normaly not even close to these Spikes.
GTX 570 Phantom @ 900/1800/2000
i5-750 @ 3,4 GHZ
1920*1080 120 HZ Display (Changed - No effect, sadly only thing i can change)
8 GB DDR 3 RAM
160GB SSD + 2x HDD which are inactive most of the time and do not get started while playing tera
Win 7 Ultimate x 64
Xonar DX Soundcard
G15 Keyboard (with most up 2 date driver)
500 Watt Enermax Power Supply
My System is around a week old. I've formated it cause I got these problems before and hoped it could have erased them which is not the case, sadly.
All Drivers are up2date as far as i know (maybe take a look at the dxdiag at the bottom to doublecheck) this includes GeForce @ Beta, Chipset, Bios, Sound, Logitech Software, etc.
My Graphiccard Driver is @ default settings except of Maximum Powersettings. It does not change a thing if Physx is on CPU/ GPU, still stuttering.
Temperatures are stressed around 75° for my CPU and 70° for my GTX (benched) with rommteperature of around 25° while testing.
My Case and every component of my PC is cleaned perfectly so dust is no problem.
I haven't used any so called "Tunning Tools" which could have messed up any windows settings or so.
Some things that i already tryed and all failed:
- Updating Logitech Driver for G15 ( + Disabeling any displayed things)
- OC CPU / GPU
- Various ini Tweaks
- All possibily Graphicsettings ingame
- Disabeling MSE and MS-Firewall
- Deactivating all sounddrivers except of my soundcard
- Playing with and without Aero
- Disabeling every powersaving feature on my CPU in the Bios
- Formated C
- Deactivated Sound in BIOS
- Various Driver Settings in my GPU Driver
What the Problem approximatly looks like:
I also had this exact problem in APB but not in the scale of the video but still, pretty similar, so i think of a U3-Problem with my hardware atm the moment.
It is also most noticable if some random character i have never seen before get's into the screen and rendered which was likely similar in APB which in itself leads me to the asumption that I have problems with the streaming of data which the U3-Engine uses. Which is kinda my last resort and last guess after trying so much :/
I just wanna play on 120 fps without stuttering :(
What it looks like in the task Manager right after login:
My Softwarelist in case anyone know some interfering programs:
My Hardware Device list for driver checking etc.:
Xonar DX Settings:
Tasks running on Windows after tera beeing in background for some time:
Soo... i guess that's all i can provide you with and now it's just waiting and trying everything you can possibly tell me to do.
I really appreciate your help cause i am kinda sad that nothing works and while in APB it was "okish" it's absolutly anoying in TERA right now.
Edit: Oh yesh i forgot to mention that it is also happening if nothing is OC'ed at all.
