It seems to me more of a problem with Bioware not fully optimizing graphics card or some not performing to full capacity with the game because in theory my dedicated card should be far superior to my intel integrated one but the results in SWTOR do not show that.
Any way I can do this, I don't know enough of all that to do it: You've seen my specs in my thread, I can relink it if you want.

Excellent information. One general question:

What is a reasonable fps to shoot for? Is there are range one ought to be expecting or shooting for beyond which is a matter of diminishing returns?

If you have an integrated Intel card for example, and have your driver downloaded, you can right click on star wars and "Run with graphics processor" and choose the Integrated Card.

Ideally you wanna be shooting for a steady 60 fps, but realistically if you can achieve a steady 30fps for a game like star wars your doing alright. In normal pve you can easily achieve 30-60fps, the problem comes in combat with PvP and operations for example. In PvP if you can get a steady 30 fps your doing really good for ureself :P

Hi there!

So I have tried everything you listed in this topic with no luck unfortunately.

So my problem is when i'm in combat in OPS or PVP my fps is below 30 at times and I have seen 15 when fighting against Titan 6 in S&V.

So this is my spec
AMD FX6300 running on 3,8 GHZ
CORSAIR Vengeance 8gb 1600 MHZ
AMD HD7850 2gb OC edition

I just don't know what to do, maybe if some1 has the same spec as me and could help me that'd great!

That does not even seem possible with ure spec man, does turning down ure graphics quality improve your fps at all?

And you have tried everything that i have listed?

Did any of those things i mentioned in the first post improve your fps at all?

Thanks for your reply. My FPS usually ranges from 90 to 110, so I guess I won't be complaining any time soon!

Lol ye, out of curiosity what spec are you running with, cause some people with top rigs are experiencing big fps dips, so will be good to find out what your rig is, mainly graphics card, cause as i said there's seems to be a problem mainly with Bioware not fully optimizing certain graphics cards.

Yes i have tried everything you mentioned and i always hoped for improvements, but in combat when i'm in ops or pvp it was just not good. Now i'm giving another shot to swtor unleashed and I'll inform you about the results if i did any ops or pvp
