Garry's Mod runs moderately slower than most?

Hello.

Lately, i’ve been having an issue with my game where it runs a lot slower than usual. I always used to get 200+ FPS on max res, all max settings, but now, I get 30-70. I don’t know what’s the issue! I’ve reinstalled the game completely, removed all addons, and deleted every game file. It’s not my specs, but here they are if you need them:

AMD A8-3870K oc’d to 3.4ghz (quad core)
MSI AMD R7 260X OC edition (latest drivers)
8GB Corsair Vengeance ram (oc’d to 1866mhz)

So, what’s the issue here?

force multicore rendering in your catalyst control center for gmods hl2.exe
Its becausse in gmod 13 multicore in the game was disabled so only one core is used.

That seems like something that will definitely increase my FPS, but I can’t find the setting in CCC. here’s a screenshot:

I just checked, and my CCC was 14.1, I checked amd.com, and the latest beta driver is 14.2, so i’ll install that and report back to what happens

Threaded optimization is there?

Where do you see that?

Also, no improvement with 14.2 beta driver.

I looked around quite a bit, and I think i solved it. I didn’t have to touch CCC, put this in your autoexec.cfg and game.cfg:


mat_queue_mode "2"
cl_threaded_bone_setup "1"
cl_threaded_client_leaf_system "1"
r_threaded_client_shadow_manager "1"
r_threaded_particles "1"
r_threaded_renderables "1"
fps_max "60"

I usually almost lag all the time with any type of DOF, this completely fixed any type of lag i’ve ever had.
