So I am getting pretty much unplayable FPS whilst playing swtor. I've tried changing all graphics settings but nothing is doing the trick. It's like theres heaps of resistance when my character is just running around. If I spin the camera it will freeze and end up in some weird location. I can barely target anything because the fps freeze as i go to click then resumes afterwards.

Im using a 6870. I play BF3, Skyrim, MW3 and other games perfectly fine. Whats going on. Someone in game told me it is a known issue with Radeon cards. Is that true, and is there an ETA on a fix?
