From 50 fps to 11 fps in GW2 Tags: Graphics Cards Configuration Games FPS Graphics Last response: January 6, 2013 1:22 AM in Graphics & Displays Share fantanel January 3, 2013 11:30:19 AM Hello, I use the PC configuration from my signature. The only game I play (and will play) is GW2. Now, in town / dungeons / etc, with medium / high details I have close to 50 fps. when I go to World vs World for PvP (a place where many players can be found, often in big numbers and all using flashy spells) my frame rates drops to 10-11 fps, and makes the game unplayable. I would like to know, if possible, what causes this drastic loss of fps: is it the old video card, is it the i3 or is it a combination of something? Thank you.
