2nd, please check which DX mode you are on. DX10 while purdy looking, eats FPS. Make sure you are on dx9 mode.

I tend to use DX9 mode and its still visually stunning.

I have 295, and I game at 1920 by 1200 res with 4X AA and nearly everything maxed except I have SSAO disabled in game and in NV control panel which gives me acceptable fps.

Around Old Tarantia I get ...30-50 or fps i believe. In dungeons your FPS should be sky rocketing (over 100). In RAIDs where there are many particle effects your FPS will go down a little bit but, still should be high enough.

You will get low FPS in areas such as Potain where there is a lot of grass. Rendering grass is 295's weakness here.

Also ensure that if you have a multi core system, ensure you have enabled multi core mode, you can do so by pressing "ctrl_alt+c", check by looking at fps "ctrl+alt+f". This game takes advatage of an extra core i believe....you should fps rise anyway from 10-30% when multi core mode is enabled.

Funny thing Is that on GTX 285 I get like 25 - 60 fps on dx 10 on open maps
and in dungeons 100 - 120...
That s great but it is allso frustrating because card like gtx 295 should work faster, I think they ****ed up something in AOC, as I said before card is much faster in Crysis and other games than my old gtx 285.

Allso I have my other comp at work and it has 8800gts and I run AOC dx 9 at 25 - 50 fps in open areas and 100 in dungeons HIGH DETAILS so WTF????
On GTX 295 it shold run in speed of light or something but it doesn t
