Just to add my two cents tho it may not be needed

 

The game seems to be cpu based but maybe not all of it, here is my end

 

I am running and ancient piece of computer, 8 years old, but upgraded.

 

I have:

HP dc 5750

AMD dual core 4800+ 2.5 ghz (mine slightly oced to 2.6 ghz)

8 gigs ram

ATI radeon 6450, 1 gig vram (oced to 725 mhz GPU, 807 mhz ram with amd overdrive.)

 

I tried running this under ubuntu 13.04 64 bit and it worked with about 20-40+ fps in caves and outer maps, 10 fps in protectors, skirmishes were a slide show at best, but this is in wine compatability layer, stronger computers have it running fine this way.

under windows xp 64 bit, I get 30-55 fps in outer maps, 15-20 fps in protectors, skirmishes are playable. Abig difference was made by slightly oc'ing with the help of Clockgen. This computer bios is very locked and not oc friendly, but i can oc 2 clicks in clock gen. This also oc'es ram, cpu, pci, pcie, and fsb, at the same time respectively. this oc created a great stability in the game. I also installed an unofficicial dx10 patch and then went to microsoft and downloaded dx10+dx11 and it installed just fine plus I have all updates for windows xp 64 bit sp2. Widows is a terrible headache to install and get running, I long forgot what what hell was like. All the software to download and get ie, firewall, defraggler, cleaner, drivers, antivirus etc.... I miss linux already.

The graphics oc showed very little difference but it did show some, the cpu etc oc showed almost no difference in fps but lags reduced heavily and game is a ton smoother so this was actually the biggest difference, deninately very cpu dependant.

 

on a side note when doing my research (in speed according to benchmarks, if processors all had the same coding, average)

single core = 100% (will run single threaded applications better than any multi core)

ht= 134% ( in general)

dual core = 150% (when running programs written for it)

quad core =170% (when running programs written for it)

If a program isnt written for the extra threads then they "can" be counter productive but the better coding and hard ware in them usually makes this a mute point.

 

It should also be known that this games engine has several memory leaks, may not be noticed on some machines, it suffers from the same memory leaks as star trek online and champions online

Uh, pretty sure my I7 3820 is "commercially available" and it's higher than anything Tom's Hardware even benchmarked lol. OP is trying too hard.

I tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it doesn't even matter.

Dat necro.  I'll throw in my 5 cents then.

The engine is severely unoptimized.

It stresses my 670 more than most games, and I run the game capped at 60FPS.

I'm forced to lower most of the view distance options to stay at 60FPS most of the time.

Shadows are murder on framerate, but the game looks horrible with them on low/off, so I keep them on high and turn off other things as a tradeoff.

High detail objects can drastically lower framerate in certain areas, turned them off too.

Worst of all, the UI has a 25% performance hit.  This has still not been fixed and I still don't see any talks about it getting fixed.

I can't even stream the game at 720p30 without a fair bit of FPS loss ontop of everything else.

 

They did optimize some areas (notably town) in the balance patch, but the engine itself still requires too much out of our systems.  It is not optimized well and I doubt it ever will be.

I mind it less and less with every passing day because I become less and less interested in the game every passing day.  I may fully quit in the next week or two.

First @ 1080 and maxed out detail sliders in game I have seen an A10 5800K at stock with a HD 6950 run smooth as butter. The game is CPU heavy on load but then again that is most MMOs, nothing new here. Toms article is so full of crap I do not know where to start. I am running a lesser video card and CPU than his test at 1080 but get the same frame rates he got and I am running at 1440.

The game code does need to be optimized no doubt but the OP and the topic of this thread are WAY OFF.

Concerning the temps of an i5 or i7, running 60 or so under game load is NOT unusual. In fact I would say it is about the norm. Expresso I am curious you have not mentioned the cooler you are running and if or if not the processor is overclocked. These are a important factors based on speed. As for 70C being the limit for the new CPUs, that is incorrect, they throttle at about 90C.

DAOWAce not sure what your issue is but likey a CPU bottleneck. I am running my 7950 at 1440 resolutions and the sliders at max and peg 60 with Vysnc and have some overhead if I need it to spare. The lose of performance when streaming is another indicator of a CPU bottleneck. Using my Hauppauge PVR2 I can stream max 1080 detail with zero performance hit.

What you need to understand is that Tom's Hardware site is an Intel pusher.  Has anyone else proven that the 8350 is that bad of a CPU for that price?  They mention that Neverwinter is CPU hungry but not which one the game's engine is optimized for or the performance on the i7 or how it performs on Windows XP,7,8 or Linux.

You've said GTX 6850 and now a Radeon 7950; the first card doesn't exist, which one do you have?

A 3770K at 4.5GHz is not a bottleneck to the game, nor is it to streaming this game.

The bottleneck is the severe lack of optimization in the engine itself, nothing more.

And of course you can stream without a performance hit, you're using a capture card, it's designed to do that.

Thanks for the heads up, that should be HD 6950 major typo there. My point however was that streaming performance lose is a CPU not GPU bottleneck.

My computer always sounds like it's taking off when I play this game. It only does it in other games for the first 5 seconds when I first start them up but it constantly makes rocket launching noises while in Neverwinter. I just thought using a GForce 200 series card which has survived 3 computers (and still plays all the modern games on highest settings) was the reason. But using a crappy AMD Athlon 270 duo processor on a game which needs better would be the better reason why. My motherboard is small and lacking too and was built before they used the colour coding system to grade them.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

Runs at max settings with no slowdown on my 2 year old i7 CPU.  I'm sure you can pick those up pretty cheap these days.

Basically, they took the game engine of Champions Online and Star Trek Online that tried to do way too much on the CPU rather than offloading it to the GPU and then made it do even more on the CPU, likely just by having to draw more stuff without changing the engine itself much.  And they did that without making it scale well to many CPU cores.  Oops.

Crappy piece of work on Tom's Hardware for a change :(

Neverwinter uses by default the DX9 rendering and that's the thing killing the performance on DX11 cards. Not to mention it forces the card to work at 100% generating a buttload of heat as well.

When you go to Graphics -> Troubleshooting you can change the rendering to DX11. This will improve the FPS a lot and lower the GPU usage by 25% on my system (set to highest settings). I've dropped from AA16x to AA8x (with the rest still at max) and the GPUs run now only on 55% tops with the FPS having an extra 10% improvement.

More info on my blog.

Hi!

Will following your suggestion help with the lag around cities/people.  I played until level 5 or so last night - loved the Targeting - and as soon as the game sent me to an area with people and chat spam, my ancient laptop lagged like crazy.  

I can play WoW/Rift with no issues, but had graphics issues with TERA.  Thanks in advance.  Might be time for an upgrade... :(

And an Intel i3 2100 is a dual core with 4 threads. Please don't misinform people by implying that a dual core has less than 3 threads.

My new laptop runs the game with everything maxed out fine.  I don't know what my FPS is, but it's never choppy or anything.  I have noticed a few times that when I use an ability it sometimes doesn't show up.  My character does the movements, but nothing fires out thier hand or the ground doesn't shake when I hit it with my GWF.  My fans don't turn on high either.  I've played several games, and none of them seem to knock them upto the highest level of fandom lol.  When I start the fans kick on high and they're noticably louder than when playing any games...Then again it starts in literally 3 seconds from cold :)

A Core 2 Duo has 2 cores and 2 threads.

It's very likely that the game isn't as optimized as it should be, but it sure does not "need a stronger CPU than is commercially available".  That is just ridiculous.

 

I don't care who said what, or what some benchmarks say. The bottom line, and all that really matters, is how the game performs on my computer, and it performs very well.  My computer is 4 years old, and was a mid-range at the time... and I am running Vista

 

Whether it is optimized properly, or not, it runs smoothly on a CPU that was "commercially available" several years ago. I'm sure that it runs even better on newer/better ones.
