Hey guys I installed the Dual core optimizer, AMD processor drivers and hotfix. Suddenly the frame rates on games dropped to ridiculous 9FPS levels. I already uninstalled the drivers and done the registry thing but im not sure if im gonna formatt the hard drive. I installed a new gfx cars so the frame rates picked up I still think I might have a problem with this "optimizing" drivers and that i might not be getting all the juice. I appreciate any suggestions.
I didn't make it!
AMD DC Optimizer should only be installed on a fresh install of Windows, in my experience it has led to some very horrifying and surprising results (and some hilarious facial expressions). Also, make sure you update all your drivers, motherboard chipset, audio, and video.
The dual core optimiser will show up inside your Add/Remove programs list if you wanna get rid of it.
Yeah I already installed and unistalled everything twice still I had the performance issues. Now I can't actually tell if my pc is under-performing since I changed my gfx card and things are moving a lot faster than before. My windows was installed last monday so I can say its quite fresh, I updated the motherboard drivers, and the video drivers also. Just hope I dont have to formatt hate doing it. Thanks!
Hmmmm the AMD DC Optimizer shouldnt cause that. Whats your O.S? I installed the AMD optimizer no probs. Maybe a driver clash >?
Windows XP Profesional, no idea what's wrong. The performance in Windows is the same, in most games I notice a decrease in performance.
Did a 3DMark06 benchmark test and got 1427 Marks. Sounds very low for my system :(.
What spec is your system?
If you play games that don't use patches that allow for dual-core optimizations, download ImageCFG. This program allows you to choose which core to run the game executable on and saves that setting.
I have to admit it seems rather odd you're getting a performance hit. I've got the DC Optimizer installed on my rig, and my windows is fast and when I switch to games I don't take a performance hit.

Uh, and what exactly did you expect from your 7300GS?
