Hey everyone, I am trying to play SWTOR on my PC. I am running a GTX 570 with a Phenom II X4 840 at 3.2 GHz with 12 GB RAM. With BF3 I can run max video settings with no performance aches, but even with SWTOR on low, in certain locations and warzones, I can go as low as 10 fps. I know my system shouldn't be doing this and am not aware as to why it is. the highest my GPU has gotten is 68 degrees celcius and I know that is common for EVGA GPU's Hopefully someone can help me out

More about : swtor lag high perfomance

Don't worry, im on a high performace PC too and im having these same problems inside the Imperial Fleet (110fps on highest while walking around tatooine, and 20 fps inside imperial fleet and 30 in warzones) Its because the game is not yet optomised, and in these high traffic areas, lag occures for everybody.

Bioware will optomise it soon, and your problems will be fixed

The game SWTOR is Radeon Biased sorry for the nvidia guys. But hey for the guys running Nvidia cards WoW runs great on Nvidia.

i have an HD 6950, so its a crossplatform problem.. maybe a driver update came out that im not aware of.

"The frames even in war zone and the imperial fleet are above 60fps they never dip" That could also be because you have tangibly more graphics computational horsepower than GTX 580 so at any rate Right on buddy.

Excuse me, but youve been rather childish and annoying all throught this thread, so forgive me for being understandibly annoyed at you right now.

Using context clues you should determine that im referring to cross platform with respect to the video card platform (ATI/AMD v. nVidia) and not gaming platforms.

I even said that im using a HD6950 card... Now how, sir, would one install that into an Xbox or PS3?

Please know what you are talking about before you post, new users here cant tell the difference between good advice and moronic blabberings.

Thank you.

My apologies but I was under the impression that cross platform means the simultaneous Console and PC releases my apologies.

Its alright, just think it through before you post. Flashresponse posting is discouraged here because it can result in people being inadequitely informed, and messing up serious things.

To OP:
If you are really concerned aboutframerate in warzones, when pvping, turn your shadow settings down and get that overall fps boost

Thank you all. I figured it was just poor optimization on Biowares part or poor driver compatibility from Nvidia. Glad to know I am not the only one having this problem. I am sure it will be fixed soon enough, just glad to know it wasn't something on my end.
