I have this.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.1GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680
Motherboard: Sabertooth x58
Why might my fps become unplayable in aoe fights and pvp?
I updated drivers and tweaked my nvidia card settings, IDK whats goin on.
I'm not sure what the problem is, I have similar specs and never drop below 30fps.
Maybe try setting TERA to high priority and make sure you aren't running anything else while playing TERA.
Not helpin, I just reformatted as well and got new drivers.
It's most likely your CPU bottle necking your system. Games don't utilize more than a few cores, so having 8 cores won't offer any benefit to gaming over 4 cores. If you have a decent cooling setup, try overclocking your CPU and see if that gives you better performance.
What version of windows are you running? It might be a ram issue. win 32 bit only supports 4 gigs of ram and your system itself will eat 1.3g of that just to run. If that's the case upgrade to windows 64 bit.
5-10 fps chops during pvp with 10+ people. When I hit people it gives huge fps drops, almost freezes.
I would try overclocking but I read my processor is pretty complicated and tedious. If anyone can refer me to instructions I'd look them over.
Win 7 64 bit.
also, My cpu usage is never over 30% when playing. Am I bottlenecking my cores or something?
First of all your actually saying your comp is a beast with only 6gig of memory? thats prolly why your having so many issues. Try adding at least 8gig of ram, I have 24 which is total overkill but I have no lag issues ever with frames or spell effects
