So let's imagine we've got a single player sins game going, 5 races (all races present), 1 star, and about 100 planets.
I usually have a smooth, extremely fluid game going for about the first two hours, but mid/endgame my frame rate sinks and the game becomes very slow and choppy, with zooming in/out losing a great degree of fluidity. Does anyone else experience this type of slowdown? It gets discouraging because I've got to play the game looking like a slide show so I usually never finish one.
Vista Ultimate 32bit -- 4 gigs RAM -- AMD X2 6400+ Black Edition @ 3.2 ghz/core -- Evga 8800 GT -- 320 gig WD Hard D
(btw my cores/ram never max out during these games)
And can sins make good use of quads?
