Hi everybody,


RS2014 is giving me a bit of heartburn as performance is so-so and cannot pinpoint the source of the problems.  


Here are the specs of the laptop I'm using:

  • Lenovo T440S
  • CPU: i5-4300U
  • RAM: 12GB (4/8)
  • SSD
  • GPU: IntelHD on CPU, 2gb allocated
  • Monitor: 55" TV and the game brings it down to 1280x800 or something in that space (I forgot!)
  • Windows 10 64-bit
  • Apps installed: Spotifi Windows client, iTunes, Chrome, Steam, Lenovo stuff, XBMC, VLC, 7-Zip
  • Link to full report here

So when a song is played (either one that comes with the game or CDLC) the play through of the song is visually choppy, audio drops for maybe 1 second once in a while, and when there are a lot of elements the screen can black out for 1-2 seconds.  I'm assuming the specs above are more than sufficient (I checked & seemed ok) and went in the .ini file and downgraded some features for graphics.


Alas, I don't know where to look anymore.  Any advice?  Thanks!

Go into the RS ini file and turn everything off.. Also there is a rocksmith configuration file in your RS folder, click it, and it will give you a step by step break down of how to decrease latency, and help your visuals.

specs should be fine i run a  smaller lenova 305 that has zero issues now as already said go into settings turn down graphics and tweek the latency settings all should be good then also make sure you have no other programs running in the background
