    Default PC specs vs. Rift

    Hello,

    So my PC spec are:

    i7 950 4.02 gigs OC
    SLI 480gtx 800/1600/1900
    x58 mobo
    6gig dominator ram

    My question is... should i be able to run past Ultra settings (max) without real lag?
    At this point i cant, so i was wondering if maybe SLI has something to do with it because i have a friend that has a single 480 and can run the game max smoother.

    Sorry if this sounds a bit dumb

    Well here's my specs:
    Phenom II x6 1090t @ 4.0ghz
    8 gb ddr 3 1600 ram
    MSI NF980-G65 mobo
    I HAD SLI gtx 480, when everything was on max settings ( crnaked each bar and option all to the max) I had about 35-45 fps during running around. sometimes it will go up to 55ish, during massive rifts with tons of ppl around it could drop to 19, or as low as 15.
    Now, I've changed my 480s to 580s, and all I've seen is 2-3 fps increase. My CPU isn't loaded to the max either, so I guess that Rift isn't optimized to good, or we just need new drivers. Anyway, if you turn of Supersampling, it will run fast, but Supersaplimg really does make it look sharper.

    Don't expect more than 30fps tops when you're in action in game. All high FPS screenshots have been taken out of combat in low pop areas. Running the game at max settings makes it unplayable.

    * The Game-o-Meter detects that your have a single core processor and Rift requires at least a dual core processor to run. Depending on your system configuration, you would have to upgrade your processor or the entire computer.
    lol. I know it's just a bug, but still comical.

    Most probably SLI.
    What's your screen resolution btw?

    I have gtx 280 overclocked by 15% (zotac amp!), e8400@stock speed, 4 gb ram, win7 x64.

    Default ultra settings - around 35 fps in gfx-intensive areas, lower in irfts, higher underwater.
    After turning AA to supersampling fps drops to constant 27-30 fps.
    Yr gfx card is surely faster, so your game should be a lot smoother, especially if you have sli setup.
    Can you check performance of the game on single card to be sure that the problem lies within SLI?
