The game starts normally, everything is fine in the menu, the fps is also almost solid 60. However, when i go into a race, the game starts to go slow motion (~32 fps). I tried playing around with the settings, i even OC'd my cpu to 3.0ghz, however, its still not helping. Is it GT3's fault ?
Full specs of my pc:
i7 920 now @ 3ghz
6gb ddr3 ram
gtx 580 (stock)
vista ultimate 64bit SP2
I will be back later to try any tips/suggestions and reply to the people who helped,
Thanks in advance
I know that GT games are very CPU intensive. So you'll need to OC your CPU more.
Granted this was about 2 years ago. But to run GT4 or SoTC at full speed. you needed a 4ghz CPU or higher (intel based of course)
Intel Core i5-4690k @4.5ghz
Samsung 16GB DDR3 @2000mhz
GeForce GTX 680 4GB
Windows 7 x64
You can take that thing further, try 3.8-4.0GHz, although even at those speeds there are some games that just won't get 60fps in software mode. I know Silmeria is one
Thanks for the replies guys,
So the only option would be to OC more.. Well I doubt I can do that as its at 84 degrees under stress already because of the stock cooler

PCSX2 settings? Plugin settings? What do the EE/GS% numbers in the game window say when you get slowdowns?
Core i5 3570k -- Geforce GTX 670 -- Windows 7 x64
The latest version of PCSX2 can run GT3 in software rendering mode on my i5 2500k at around 50FPS most of the time (got PAL version), even at 4.2 I still get a bit of a slow down at the start (at least in software mode). I am not sure what you can do to get it 100% smooth.
