|I still enjoy playing the old Call of Duty: United Offensive game online from time to time. I usually cap my frame rate at 333, but it seems to drop down a lot, to around 140-180 depending on the amount of players, and the size of the map. On some maps, it even drops as low as 125. I've talked to other people that have much older hardware than me, and they seem to be able to hold a constant 250, which makes me think that I should be able to handle a little more than that considering my hardware is much better. I would have assumed this beast of a card would have been able to handle such frame rates steadily on such an old game, but maybe I'm just wishful thinking. Below are my specs:|
Intel Core i5 750 @ 2.8 GHz
ATI HD 5870
4 GB Corsair XMS3 1333 CL7
I tried Left 4 Dead on max settings, and I get about 190-250 constant, which doesn't make sense to me. Shouldn't I be able to get better frame rates in older games, that require much less when it comes to hardware requirements?
