Mike, I'm experiencing similar problems.
Need for Speed 5's graphics, physics engine
and gameplay are AMAZING but like you, I'm getting
choppy framerate at times, in particular when there are many cars on screen at the same time the
frame rate chops down sometimes to 7-8 fps. I'm
using a K6-3 400 MHz with a single Voodoo 2 at
640x480. I have overclocked the Voodoo 2 and have
vsync disabled and the game still runs slow. I think it might be a memory problem or swap disk
problem as the game seems to be accessing the CD
and hard disk quite often. I only have 64 meg RAM
and I think for this game 128 megs might help A LOT. Is everybody else who has a smooth frame rate
using large swap file and/or has 128 or more megs
of RAM?
