Some help regarding fps and performance

Issue:
So I’m running Fire Emblem Echoes and the intro cutscene runs at only like 10 FPS and then it gets sluggier at title screen with only 4-5 FPS. I know it may depends on the cpu and gpu too.
Is there anyway to improve its FPS to around 45 FPS?

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.
  • Enabling Accurate Multiplication is recomended in certain games. If you are experiencing graphical glitches, try enabling this option.

Yeah that APU is very slow: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/singleThread.html (score: 542) . My old Athlon 64 x2 4200+ from 2006 scores 781 :stuck_out_tongue:

Your computer isn’t made for playing games :frowning:

Black Friday is coming up in less than 4 weeks, maybe you can find a good deal on a new computer.
