This is without me running a game, by the by.
Now that I think about it, all games stayed the same after updating my graphics card, so that can't be it. Still, reinstalled it last night, anyways.
The anti-virus only found a minute few viruses. The games still run sluggish.
Granted, these games are known to be unoptimized, but I ran them fine before, so it shouldn't be an issue. The games in particular that I am most concerned about are Tera: Rising (A mmorpg.) and Dungeon Defenders.
The first I had ran at 40-60 frames per second at max settings. Now it doesn't get above 10 on lowest settings on the character select screen.
The second I had not run until recently on this computer, but seeing as how I was able to get it to run better on an old laptop with integrated graphics, it seems strange that it's running a bit sluggish (Not unplayable, but sluggish.).
Could my card be bypassed, and the games are relying on the CPU alone instead? If so, is there a way around that?
Hope this helps.
