Im using an Core2Duo E8400 3.00 Ghz processor, I get 45-70 frame rate and 30-50 during movies for FF12, which was par with my core2 2.00 ghz, also the words aren't keeping up with the text so I have to wait. Is my crappy radeon 2400 causing this?
I updated the Driver but still the same. Can anyone actually run FF12 at full speed all the time? Also once I got to the leviathan cut scenes slowed down to about 20-27 FPS and now voices are kinda echoey.
It's not the memory of the graphics card that's the problem. It's the GPU chip itself. The Radeon HD2400 is pretty weak. If your Radeon HD2400 had 2GB of memory, it wouldn't perform any faster, at all. Don't make your decision based on a graphics card's memory. Base it off the GPU itself. That's what makes your performance better. Memory amount only matters if you have too little. In fact, memory speed is more important for a GPU (for the main system RAM, it's often the opposite, where more amounts is generally better than more speed).
Pros: Great graphics performance for the money, fairly low cost, can run most games out there.Cons: The fan. It is terrible. I could hear the bearing start to go after about four months, and here I am six months into owning the card and the fan has stopped altogether.
