    Yeh, you're going to find that drop in FPS is due to the CPU more than the GPU. Me and my friend have almost identical systems, but he is running a 2.66GHz Dual Core and I have a Quad. When there is alot of zombies being rendered, during a horde rush say, he will have drops to 35-45FPS, whereas mine will stay a solid 55-60FPS for 99% of the game. There is a section at the airport in L4D1 where I have 35s... but that's my problem. :)

    L4D, isn't source engine based games more CPU dependent than GPU ever since HL2?

    Now i have very good fps since i disable "multicore rendering". in the graphic option. Even if i play at max settings.

    We have both a 9600gt, why in the GPU-Z mine seem to be a bit better ?

    I havent overclock.

    Overclocking isn't going to resolve this issue. Most likely it is a driver problem and not any kind of lack of power - especially for l4d and other source games.

    Nvidia just released a new driver a day or two ago and it lists performance increases for l4d (though nothing about studdering or multicore redering issues.) - but give it a try. If the latest doesn't work try a pre-190's driver (most of the 190 drivers had issues for many people, including me.)

    Or, leave multicore redering off and call it your "fix" and just enjoy playing games. lol

    seems to be about a tie IMO , your core is higher and so is the shader.

    Since my game play well and the graphics look very good to me , yes i'm happy :wanker: Whats the use of "multicore rendering " anyway ? From what i read its suppose to give better performance... ? But no change in graphic quality ?

    Maybe i'll wait for a better driver...i will give a try to these new one, going back to old ones , i never try that before.

    And Thx general for the clarification about GPU-Z.

    Too bad mine had a stock clock of 740 MHz. Else it would have been a 23% overclock , hihi :)
