Overclock your CPU to 4GHz, get a modern Nividia single GPU such as a GTX 660Ti Boost or greater (GTX 680 recommended) , overclock your RAM, lower your tRD setting through MemSet and try again.
ROFLSTOMP! Sometimes I'd like to be blind.
Btw, I can't buy that rig I already spent 10k $ on cartel market packs... Soon I'm gonna have to rent a power plant to play swtor. Well whatever, I'm gonna sell my house if I have to, as long as I can play swtor and run around the fleet with my new pink armor at 5 fps...
PS : i7 2700K + 2x 560Ti SC SLI + SSD + 16Go = 5-10fps on fleet/OP/WZ (60 fps minimum before gree event)
Seems like graphic cards can't go higher than 20-30% gpu usage. Something's obviously broken.
If swtor can't run correctly on that rig then it's Bioware's job, not mine. All I know is that my sub's gonna get canceled next tuesday if it's still not fixed.
The only thing you can do to get heard is to cancel your subscription and more than anything else, stop buying stupid cartel packs.
EDIT : I just found this old topic. It's kinda fun/sad to see nothing has changed at all. Actually, it's getting worse.
