Hi, I was playing around on my laptop last night and installed the 8.41.7 drivers from ATi, my laptop has an X1400 in it, not the HD2400 that the drivers were designed for so I understand some things may not function correctly and will cover the observations:
<br><br>1. Pixels shaders+Vertex shaders - I have to disable these or I get missing elements from the screen, once tunred off it all renders ok<br><br>2. CPU overload - This is the main thing i am asking about here, because the game seems to render fast but it will render say half a second then hiccup and continue like this, one core of my CPU is at 100% with the other near idle.
<br><br>Has anyone seen this kind of behaviour? I feel that if I can get the CPU to calm down or find out why it is peaking that the game would actually run ok. Later this month I am expecting AMD to release the proper driver for my card but the thing that has me is that this odd "CPU overload" only started happening on the
8.41.7 drivers. Before that WoW ran ok, FPS was too low to really play properly but it ran.<br><br>hoping some other WoWers can comment.<br><br>regards,<br><br>Burkey<br>
