Today i buy the sponsor pack, but when i try to install the game, i got the message: "CPU does not support AVX instruction set. Application shut down".  I have a 6 month old i7 3 GHz Windows 10 PC, all other games are running fine.


System-Info shows me Intel64 Family 6 Model 26 Stepping 5 GenuineIntel 3068 MHz, i7 CPU, 4 Cores. Is it possible that AVX is disabled in the bios? What can i do?

Could you tell us what the precise CPU is?  Dual Universe requires AVX.

 

I’m no help, but I’m sure that information would be useful for others.

 

like is it an i5 6600k etc

 

Maybe the motherboard and BIOS version would be useful as well... if it is a bios thing.  However, I’m pretty sure it simply means your CPU does not support AVX

 

Edit:

 

Looking at this, it seems it is an i7 920 or a Xeon processor:

That is one old CPU... sorry to say it buddy, but I don't think it supports AVX

I think the processor is to oldfashioned. It´s a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950  @ 3.07GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.1GHz. It´s fast enought with a good graphic card for most of the games, but - i don´t know it before - doesn´t support AVX command-set. unfortunately, it´s not possible to use the motherboard and processor socket for a newer processor. So what i know now, only way should be a new motherboard, processor, RAM and so on. Or may be cheaper, a new PC with processor which supports AVX. The Support of Novaquark wrote me also. May be there is another solution i don`t know yet.

While you may have bought it 6 months ago, it is 10 years old hardware.It will serious limit if not cripple performance of modern day GFX cards.

If it has a 10 year old CPU, it's likely to have an older GPU as well.

 

Besides, I think it could still power something like a 1050 TI or even a 1060 just fine.
