Lag while recording full screen with fraps.
This question might have appeared before, but I can't find anyone who has exactly the same prob.
So when I'm not recording with Fraps, I get about 120 fps. However, when I record with fraps using Full screen mod (which I need) it drops to about 20, aka not playable for me.
Imo, my comp should be easily be able to handle it:
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T black edition;
8GB of Geil DDR3 ram @ 1333;
Ati HD5770 Graphics card;
500GB HD @ 7200 rpm;
Now, I've read the post about recording with fraps, lowering your video settings etc, but this doesn't really help - as I'm still dropping fps.
Can it really be that it's THIS bad because i'm writing to the same HD as where wow is on? (I actually tried writing to an external HDD, but this dropped my fps even more?)
I think I must be missing something, but I can't figure out what!
Any help will be HIGHLY appreciated!
Re: Lag while recording full screen with fraps.
It's not really separate partitions that matter, but separate physical drives. Drives, even ssd's, are limited by the i/o cap on the interface with the mobo, or even the speed and number of r/w you can do at once.
Partitioning doesn't speed anything up, it's just an organizational tool.
I personally run 5 drives, 3 being ssd's, one 10k rpm raptor and one 1tb drive just for storage.
If you want a performance gain, keep where fraps records off the game drive and off your swapfile/pagefile drive completely.
