Core i7 gaming issue
I was at a friend's home, and he proudly showed me his Core i7 machine equipped with dual graphics card. He played BF3, with pretty high settings.
However, every 5 minutes or so, the screen froze for a few seconds, sometimes right in the battle. In one scene, the friend entered a train, facing some enemy dude with a knife. The friend was about to pull the trigger... Suddenly the screen froze, frenetic hammering on the keyboard could not instill life back to the on-screen characters.
The good thing was, the machine did not BSOD and the game resumed. But my friend (or his role in the game) found himself stabbed in the rear and fell to the floor... probably during the momentary freeze of time.
I wonder how many people have such experience.
