I have recently noticed that my games are very slow while using the Xbox Wireless controller with my computer. I originally thought my computer had slowed down but I also tried configuring my PS3 controller over Bluetooth and I noticed that the slowness is completely gone.
I tried both controllers on Borderlands 2 and Tomb Raider. In both games, even if I reduce the graphics to minimum 800x600 resolution and put all settings to lowest, there are still lags in the game time to time.
Note that this is not lag with the controller commands. The buttons I press respond just fine, but the game itself freezes or framerate drops while I'm using the Xbox wireless controller. But when I use the PS3 controller, I can run both games at 1200x800 resolution and some graphics settings at medium.
It happens with both my Mac and my PC.
What could be the cause of this slowdown and how do I fix it?
