This seems to be an issue for all those people. With mulricore amd cpus… Hope it helps.
This may or may not help other people who have freezing issues with conan, i used to have to turn all sound off completely in order to play this fine game without it lagging/freezing out every minute or so.
I currently have an AMD FX8350 Black edition cpu which has 8 cores and 16gb of ram with a Radeon R9 380 4gb card.
As you can guess i crawled through the entirety of the internet to help me with this issue and finnally found an answer to my issue, it may or may not help others but it is my duty as a felly conanian to help others.
Before you open conan press CTRL ALT and DELETE to open the task manager then click on the details tab and then open conan as you normally would then alt tab out to the task manager and in the details tab look for the conansandbox.exe…right click it and left click on SET AFFINITY and turn off the bottom 4 cores then close the task manager and hopefully you can now play conan as it was meant to be played.
IF this helps please tell others all i know is if i play it without doing this i cant play with any sound on or it will be unplayable.
Please note if this works for you unfortunately you will have to do this everytime you start conan.
Hope it works guys/gals…have fun.
