Low fps on server(any server, doesnt matter the gamemode or amount of people)

for some reason i only get 20 or less frames on any server if i host it any noone is in on any gamemode or if i join a sever no matter the gamemode 20 or less fps but when i play on singleplayer i get way more frames can anyone help me with this

Post your specs.

What are your graphics settings as well?

Processor AMD A8-6410 APU with AMD Radeon R5 Graphics
Manufacturer AMD
Speed 2.0 GHz
Number of Cores 4
Video Card AMD Radeon™ R5 Graphics
Manufacturer ATI
Chipset AMD Radeon™ R5 Graphics
Dedicated Memory 512 MB
Total Memory 2.0 GB
Memory 3.5 GB
Operating System Microsoft Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit

But what are your graphics settings?

Also APUs aren’t generally good at source engine in particular garrys mod. My father’s laptop which is an APU can do 80 frames at max on the original Portal, but as soon as you switch to Gmod, yeah say hello to sub 30 frames.

i run at the lowest of the low

and that sucks cause half of my games are source games

just got this computer hoping it was better than my last laptop but it runs all source games way worse but others a lot better

but you see if i play singleplayer i get 60+70 frames is alot of gamemodes but in a server with 0 people in it I get 20 or less frames

wait theres one source game i can run but i dont understand why but i get 120+ frames in Half-Life 2

Do you have Vsync enabled?

i never have that on

Just making sure. Try running it in windowed. I’ve had AMD APU drivers do funky stuff with frame rates in full screen.

ok ill test it out

[editline]13th January 2015[/editline]

just dont normally like to play in windowed cause it looks wierd

[editline]13th January 2015[/editline]

nope i get half as much frames in windowed

Yeah it sounds like it isn’t strong enough. But the fact that it’s only happening on Gmod is a bit weird.
