I have 2 computers running side by side. Both exceed specs. Yet, the PFS hovers around 9.

Please help me find a way to correct this soon. I don't want to have to pay (x2) for a game I will be unable to enjoy.

Thank you.

It seems to me, that your problem is similar to mine.
I already opened a thread in the german community forum, yet up till now, there has been no one who would have been able to come up with an solution.

My System specs are:
Acer Aspire 5745 PG Notebook
Intel i5-460M Prozessor (~2,54 ghz) 4GB Ram.
Nividia GeFroce GT 420M (driver 8.17.12.8562).
Intel R HD Graphics Drivers versions are 8.15.10.2559
Direct X11 ist updated as well as is my Operations System (WIndows 7)

if already gone through a wohle system whipeout yesterday without any effect.
beforehand my System could handle WOW at max Settings at 25 Raids without any trouble - neither did i have any Problems at playing skyrim.

What buggers me the most is, that i could play StarWars at the Beta weekend with 17 FPS.
But now somehow the game (or my system) seems to be messed up.
~7 Fps ... what i noticed is that i can get FPS boosts up to 30 if i switch to my desktop and back into the game ... but within 20 seconds the frames drop back to "normal"

If theres anyone who can help, he`ll have my eternal gratitude - i`d even considre naming my firstborn son after him.

Thank you for the replies. I've had issues replying to my own thread. Kept telling to log in, over and over but never letting me post.

Anyway, I've been going over many of these type of threads. The result has been a slight improvement. Tython seems a lot worse than the other starting worlds though.

I'll try an post my specs later. I'm away from gaming room.
