So i booted up gTA iv today and i wanted to play a little bit and i got in did some missions and stuff then i noticed some fps throttling issues like the game was running fine at 30-60 fps then it would randomly dropped to 15 I figuered something out i think... i want to the nvidia control panel and noticed i had texture filtering quality to "high quality" i changed it to "Quality" and i went back and played the same missions and stuff again and no throttle issues!! am i on to something??? thanks just a hint if u having drop or throttle issues...

oooo so you did change the "high quality down to quality" instead and the fps improved?

yes it stopped the throttling... before it was dropping to 15 fps for a second and that no longer happens its really annoying :cool:
