Jumpy FPS with a GTX 680 and a 4.5 i7

Anyone experience jumpy/low FPS with the same setup? I got 8Gigs of DDR3, an i7 @ 4.5Ghz and my GTX 680 and not sure why GW2 performs so weird. :/

GW2 just isn't optimized very well, even with a good rig like yours it tends to hang up when it really shouldn't.

One thing I find truly odd is that I see very little difference in fps, from high graphic settings to low. The settings that make any significant impact are water reflections, best texture filtering, and the AA settings. Its like the other settings don't matter at all. Nor, those settings I mentioned are fairly typical performance hogs, except the reflections bit, yet thats what makes me lose the most fps.

I really hope anet does more optimization in the future.

Why is it that no matter how much you shake and dance, the last drop is always on your pants?

as a good reminder, always check to make sure you have the latest drivers. For me, lowering shaders and shadows to medium, reflections to sky & terrain (?) and turning off post-processing nets me a good 15 frames. i7 (lowest model) and gtx460 on 4 gb of ram and I get 60 frames for most things.

Yeah, I'll get the same FPS sorta at max settings and low settings which is very weird. (maybe 10-20 gain instead of 50-60 I'll get 60-70) I got the beta drivers for the 680 also and my computer is amazing on everything but GW2. :/

INB4 Rex coming in stating he gets 80FPS with an outdated GPU and an i5!

When that happens, it's an issue with the optimization.

What exact drivers are you using? The 310.xx drivers were horse **** for GW2, I rolled back to 306.9x and everything is fine. Also it could be your hard drives fragmented. (All the updates tend to fragment on older drives, not a problem with an SSD)
