Camera sticks with GeForce3 Ti500

Recommended Posts

This is a little annoyance that's been plaguing me since I got my new computer. When I'm on the battlefield and I move the camera around, particularly when I'm rotating it around by moving the mouse to the left & right edges of the screen, the camera will rotate, "stick" for a little bit, and then contintue on. This is definitely not a framerate issue as everything is totaly smooth during the rotating, except when the screen sticks for a little bit. Does anyone else with the same vid card have this problem? Are there any settings for the card I can change that might alleviate this. I already have the latest drivers which have reduced the problem a little from the default ones that came with my computer.

Here are my system specs:

AMD 1900+ 1.6ghz

512 Ram

GeForce3 Ti500

Windows XP

This is probably unavoidable with most newer computers and Windows XP... do you know if your video card is sharing an IRQ with another device ? This is often the case with ACPI-compliant motherboards, where they'll assign every PCI-related and AGP device to a single IRQ. What the exact advantage is to this I don't know, but it does affect the performance of peripherals since each of them has only one channel to signal to the CPU that it's their turn for the system's attention.
