Why is My PC Performance Rated "Low" ???

By Snuffy09 ·
One of my favorite PC Games is Company Of Heroes

I recently Reinstalled it because i upgraded my motherboard (GIGABYTE GA-MA78G-DS3HP AM2+/AM2).

CPU Socket Type AM2+/AM2
CPU Type Athlon 64 X2

(My specs)
CPU Athlon 64 x2 2.3 dualcore
Memory 2GB PC2 6400
GFX Card old 512MB Ati 1650x

I Installed/Updated all my drivers. I even downloaded the most recent dual core optimizer from amd. When i Install COH it says that all my recommended specs are "great" except for my processor which says is "poor"

Any help would be great!
Thank you!

Have you checked the game web site for patches?

Often, new equipment can't be recognized properly by older games. Sometimes the game manufacturer puts patches on their web site. Have a look there first.

Don't forget that AMD chips throttle-back until called upon to act ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Why is My PC Performance ...

I found the same problem with my Acer laptop.

FarCry used to rate its Sempron 3000 as LOW from within the setup screens - but when you're in the setup screens the chip is sitting idling at 800MHz, because it's not being asked to do much.

When called upon to act it would ramp up to 1800MHz - with the AMD instruction set giving the Intel equivalence of 3GHz (supposedly).

I'd advise that you ignore the given rating and just set the game as you want.

We all have to read them to learn. After all they are supposed to be Unknown Tricks so we need to read these to learn.

Edited to add And Snuffy if you mark this as Helpful I'm going to have to kill you. After all you know that Hal no longer answers questions and even still has two too many thumbs.
