Dips to 20 fps and lower are simply not acceptable under any circumstances. EQ2 can't deliver a consistant 40FPS even with my system which is pretty ****ing beefy. (A64@2.5, Geforce 6800 GT at stock, 1GB ram)
Though it has nothing to do with it's performance, im sure my system runs it just as well or better then ChrisRay(Second system), im just not willing to Accept the performance im seeing. Yet it's ok for him.
I am playing at 1280x1024 and the game looks beautiful and runs great even in queynos with my system specs, and I have 6800 GT...not sure what your settings are, but you do have to tweak some bit...but most stuff I took off was stuff that made little differences and gave huge FPS..like shadows and flora..both of which annoy me anyhow.
