On a certain set of older software titles that range anywhere from last year all the way back to 1993, I get absolutly terrible performance in the ways of;
fps bottoming out in certain situations i.e. when a lot of graphics are forced to change quickly in a game.
terrible performance in some games that require pentium 133s and 64mb integrated graphics, yet I can play games like medieval: total war, and the stronghold series just fine.
Im thinking this is software and not hardware, but i could be mistaken. This is honestly driving me nuts
