Bad performance

I just re-installed this game after not having played for several months, and it's running terribly. I know I did something last time I played to get it running well, but I can't remember. I've tried some solutions from these forums, but nothing is helping.

I disabled crossfire, and set the launch options to "-str -npd +jobs_numThreads 0"

The FPS dips down to 15-20 when I go outside.

My hardware:
i5 2500k @ 4.5GHz
8GB DDR3
2x cfx radeon hd 6950 2GB
Crucial M4 128GB SSD
Windows 7 x64

Disable your CrossFire.
As well as any OC to see if the issue goes away.

What Catalyst driver version are you using?

Tried disabling crossfire (see first post.)

I'm using 12.3 and whatever CAP came out when 12.3 came out.

From experience I'd have to say 12.3 is your problem. At least part of it.
Try an uninstall and then reboot and do a clean install of 12.1 (or 12.1a hotfix'd version)

As that gets along with CrossFire setups much better.

What about any OC's? Did u try using stock CPU/GPU settings?

U shouldn't need any special command line options on your setup. As it may even hinder performance even further. It's commands for older setups, like Dual-Cores or lower end GPUs that really can't keep up with the game.

Also look in your Catalyst settings (Advanced) and disable Catalyst A.I.
Try V-Sync forced ON/OFF in Catalyst and see which works best for you.

Now that I think about it, the last time I played I was using a very inferior Phenom II x4 965BE at 3.5 GHz. I still have the same profile and configuration for the game. I'll try removing the command line options and the CCC tweaks before rolling back the driver.

Also, do you think that there could be some compatibility problem if I have different hardware than when I installed it? I know some games look at your hardware id for gpu/cpu and do different stuff. Some game from a few years back (I think it was Prey) used some difference optimization methods based on the gpu you had installed, and I had to edit my profile to reflect new hardware changes.

Installing the latest Nvidia drivers seems to have fixed it for me, the previous drivers had questioning be almost impossible because peoples faces kept "freezing" but it's ok now, with no hardware changes

You did bother to wipe your main drive and reinstall windows before replacing that "inferior" CPU, right? From reading the post I quoted, you kind of make it sound like you just popped the new CPU/hardware in and started playing the game.

I hope that isn't the case and you actually have a second hard drive for storing non-Windows stuff. If so, you may just need to reinstall L.A. Noir to get it running smoothly again.
