OP  4/29/12 1:31:40 PM#1

Having just been playing in the beta for god knows how long, I'm in need of a bit of a rest and would like to ask how the game performs on your system. It will help give me and anyone interested in upgrading their system and idea on how well the game currently runs on certain set-ups. I know optimization is still ongoing but it's still info a lot are interested in. So I'll go first.


Windows 7 (64-bit)
AMD Athlon II X4 620, 2.62Ghz
ATI Radeon HD 5570 1GB DDR3
640GB HD 7,200rpm

Settings: Medium-High

PvE Isolated Areas: 25-40fps
PvE Open/Crowded Areas: 15-30fps
PvE Event Zerg: 5-10fps
PvE Dungeon: Can't be arsed to level
Structured PvP: 25-40fps
WvWvW Zones: 20-30fps
WvWvW Epic Battles: 5-10fps


Right now the game doesn't improve in performance when you lower most of the settings. Only shadows & reflections seem to have some effect.

On my laptop

intel core i7 2.00ghz

8 gig ram

nVidia 540m


I can run most everything (including WvW) on the very highest settings. 


On my slightly beefier stationary comp I have to settle for medium though. Maybe cause the lappy has a better CPU (and stationary better gfx) since I heard the game is quite CPU heavy this iteration.

8 Core i7 CPU 2.8GHz


ATI Radeon HD 5800


I would get around 40ish FPS normally, it would drop to around 30 if there were a lot of people around, and a few times it dropped to like 15 or so when there was an absolute HORDE of people.

But TBH, it was pretty good, even in a big WvW siege I was getting like 30-40 the whole time.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

One setting from the highest gave me 30-60 fps. When there were a ton of peple in WvW, It almost got down to 30. Everywhere else the graphics performed well.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

i7 920 @ 3.5ghz

6gb DDR3

gtx 570

everything max, except for shadows which are on high. AA on. my card didnt go higher than the mid 60's, and CPU at most would be at ~%70 load.

game runs flawlessly in the open world. WvW is perfectly smooth at all times in large fights (at least 50v50), however, inevitably, there is a FPS drop but only to a certain point. Divinity's Reach and Black Citadel were smooth with decent FPS, but Halbrek was below average. LA on the other hand was just awful, i think i was getting around 15fps running around it.

as 10k mentioned, only lowering reflections made a difference for me. even disabling AA did nothing.

overall, im extremely happy that the game can handle lots of players in one area, but a little let down that the cities are so poorly unoptimized. im optimistic about the upcoming optimizations.

" LA on the other hand was just awful, i think i was getting around 15fps running around it."


I had the same experience. The training area of LA even saw me plummet below 10. Something is a bit off in that city. LA shouldn't be harder on your comp than a 50v50 skirmish..

Didn't touch the settings the game gave me and didn't see lag even in WvWvW when we had over 100 people on screen.

I had really bad performance and the constant dc's and getting stuck at character screen or login did not help to test further.

Im on FX4100, 3.6GHz / 8Gb DDR3 / HD 6970, 2Gb...

Had around 20-30fps with balanced settings at the norn starter area...

And when there was event going on it dropped easily to between 10 and 20.

the best way to kill a troll is to FLAME ON! ...or with acid...

12gb 1600Mhz RAM

Playing at 5280x1050 with in game settings maxed (with FXAA)

I got fine framerates in most areas. With many people on the screen it would drop to 20 or so. Overclocking my CPU to 4.2Ghz solved any dips in framerates and the game remained smooth.


I never took many screenshots but here's 3 or 4.

i7-920, Win7x64, 12GB RAM, GTX-580 HydroCopper2

Frame rate was fine in most areas, but there were some locations where rates would drop precipitously while facing certain directions. That got me wondering about various distance settings, but it turned out that it was just reflections. With reflections turned off completely, frame rate never dropped. I could turn it on and off while standing in the same area and get an unbelievable difference in update rates. Anyone having frame rate issues (as opposed to server response lag) should definitely try turning reflections off.

I was mostly ok all BWE until the closing event which seemed to be staged as a load test.

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

HIS Radeon 6950 2GB


16 GB Ram


DSL modem (lame....)


The game ran fine on that all weekend except for a little FPS issues on final event.


However, my wife's laptop couldn't play it.  Graphics were screwed up so bad I couldn't see anything.  AMD Duo Core, ATI 5750 Mobile GPU, 8 GB ram....

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

could'nt get into game on first night because of login probs.once i got into game and got to grips with what i was supposed to be doing i was ok.created a charr grd and for the most part i really enjoyed playing my ass handed to me on a plate at the beginning so many times.but i thought that was great,by that i mean its not an easy game at all.

TBH i didnt really want to play that much mainly because i didnt want to sicken myself before release.some of the class story quests are tough but doable.all in all first impressions of this game for me are ,its,fun,challenging at times,graphics ok.

Was it worth the pre-purchase,in my view yes.and i look forwqard to release.Now its back to tera for me.

Medium Settings

i7 2.6 ghz

GTX 470


Overall great performance; however there is an issue with GTX 470s cards (and 460s) that causes a very weird crash.  Arenanet is aware of it.  I was getting crashes about once every 2 hours on average which required a reboot as well as other random briefer freezes periodically (~30 minutes on average).  Sometimes they would happen a bit more frequently.  Caused a lot of frustration throughout the beta such as being kicked from a Catacombs group due to crashing during a boss fight.

FPS remained steady throughout.  Was hitting almost 60FPS in non-crowded areas and even during the beta event FPS remained above a very stable 20.  No major frame rate hits in WvWvW either suprisingly.

Raptr link because it's the cool new trend:
