I have a pretty good pc
CPU: Intel I7 4790k 4.6ghz (Very well cooled, No throttling)
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VII Hero
Graphics: Asus Poseidon Platinum GTX 980 x2 SLI
RAM: Corsair Vengence Pro 1866mhz
Running Skyrim from an hdd
I've completed the Skyrim revisited guide and I'm having low framerate in some areas. I disabled the enb but left the boost on and that helped in most areas but a few are still terrible.
None of my cpu cores are maxing out and my gpus are not taxed very much at all.
I've tried running the game with and without SLI and there is no difference in framerate. The attached photo is of my system usage in a trouble area. I'm always at the vsync limit of 60 unless I get into an area like this. When you first enter the Whiterun gate and there are npcs there. I've tried removing all the npcs but that doesn't help performance at all. In this location I get 39-52fps not moving, standing at the gate. When moving closer to the market my fps goes up and when I get to breezehome it's 60. Looking from Dragonsreach down on gildergleam and everything else nets a terrible 35-45fps. If you need anymore info just ask and thank you in advance!
