My machine can handle Deus Ex Human Revolution fine with the resolution turned down a bit from my screen's native resolution. However tutorial clips and cutscenes play extremely slowly - the audio is very choppy and basically unintelligible. Is there a setting I can change that's likely to improve things, or should I just tab out and look them up on YouTube instead? This is on an i5 CPU.

    AMD/Intel cpu? AMD/nVidia gpu? Huge thread on cutscene performance (same thing) here -> forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=119684, has about 20 different answers in it to test, I will see if I can find you something definitive!

  • Apparently this issue should affect all Steampowered games under the provision you're using an AMD cpu and requires a BIOS update to fix, obviously completely invalid if you're on Intel hardware though...

Have you tried watching the tutorials from the Main Menu when you start the game? I think those will play fine from the menu.

  • I have the same trouble as fredley, and I tried playing the tutorials from the opening menu. The audio skipping was actually worse than when I watched them during the game.

  • @Fambida Yup, just checked and it sounds like exactly the same thing.
