I wonder if anyone on the forum is using a Radeon HD 4870
, and if it is behaving for them.
I am still encountering flickering (small, square) artefacts and freezes (every 10-15 seconds), genuinely making SWTOR unplayable. I've also had two hard reboots, which is why I stopped playing for some time. Drivers are completely up to date, shadows off, bloom off.
I guess I'm employing process of elimination, and trying to establish just where the problem is.
I'm considering upgrading to a GeForce GTX 560
, but I'd need to be confident that:
1. The HD 4870 is giving others graphical/gameplay issues, AND
2. Others using the GTX 560 consistently report no graphical problems.
I'd rather not shell out c.£150 and be no better off.
(Windows 7 Pro x64, 8Gb RAM.)
apologies for not posting more detailed specs. And yes, I'm running the latest Catalyst application profiles.
Any constructive advice would be appreciated.
