Something in the code since the last hotfix patch is preventing the game from running as smooth as it used to. I have around 107 fps on the fleet (I dont use SLI), but it looks and feels more like 25-30 with micro-stutters.
It's not the new shadows or actual visual effects because changing settings makes no difference, it's something else behind the scenes. The game feeling rough is just the result of it.
Ahh, so at least I know it's not just an issue with my system then, as yes, post 1.4 my frame rate especially in warzones has dropped through the floor. In Voidstar for example it was down to around 5 to 10 fps. Pretty much unplayable in fact.
Pre 1.4 it was perfectly fine.
