Hi, for a long time now I have had this strange stuttering in some games I play (The games I have noted it in are Black and White 2, World of Warcraft, Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142, among others). Some games run fine, such as half-life 2, CSS, and Galactic Civ 2. But in affected games, I see different problems. In World of Warcraft and the BF's, I notice other players in the game world stuttering all over the place - they are in one area, then immediately appear in another, then another, and so on, with some occasionaly frames being missed. In Black and White 2, sometimes (it seems quite random) the game will slow down and begin to miss frames at even intervals.
I have an AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 7600gs PCI, 1GB Corsair value select RAM, not too sure about motherboard, but this problem was happening when I had my old MSI-K8N Neo 2 Platinum (I Think thats what its called) and 6600GT.
I first noticed this problem after an update of World of Warcraft, where immediately after the update I noticed this problem.
I have reformatted my computer, performed virus scans, defragged, scandisk, everything I can think of. Anyone have any ideas what I could do to sort this problem out?
I heard that hyperthreading can cause this, but I didnt know AMD CPUs had hyperthreading, and if they do, I can't find it in the BIOS. Thanks
