    Default Insane low fps?

    Okay, I've been playing Beta 5 and 6 a little bit, however the fps has been so terrible it was almost unplayable.

    My computer specs are:

    Intel(R) Core(TM) Quad CPU Q8300 @
    2.5 GHz 2.50 Ghz.
    4.00 GB
    Graphic card: Nvidia Geforce GT 220
    Windows 7 Home Premium

    I've constantly been running at around 15-25, in LOW settings - and if I set the settings a bit up to good, it drops below 10.

    Is it simply just my computer that isn't good enough or what? Anyone know?

    sounds like a GPU bottleneck, then again I get poor performance too off a 2.2ghz Quad CPU (only taxes the 3rd core) and a GTX260

    im thinking the video card right off as well. if you are comfortable with Overclocking try it a bit and run some benchmarks each time to make sure its stable. if you have never done overclocking maybe you can just upgrade.

    Gpu would be the prime suspect. The 220 is a fairly low end Gpu.

    Change the profile in Nvidia control panel to performance. Probably won't make a huge improvement, but every bit helps with low end hardware.

    download nvidia system tools, it enables the extra features in nvidia control panel http://www.nvidia.com/content/Driver...=us&type=Other

    edit: also i use GPUTool as a way of seeing if the setting is stable. it puts stress on the GPU and has error detetection so it will tell you if it detects something wrong.

    I wouldn't bother overclocking it, It just doesn't have the horsepower.

    Even if you overclocked it you'd probably see a 1% improvement in framerate, if that.
    If at first you don't succeed, threaten to quit unless it's nerfed.

    My friend said my computer was way fine to play Rift. Is it total lie or?

    I can say my computer run WOW in Ultra.. Yet can't even play rift in Low properly.. You know if my computer is just too bad or? (I'm really noob at computers:P) How would you rate my computer?

    only thing i see wrong is the memory speed. that memory is moving quite slow. which can easily be remedied. the higher end card has it moving a great deal more and many ppl have 200series cards that play the game fine.

    er....ya. i would refrain from comparing anything to WoW in future discussions if i were you. WoW was put out in 2004. though it has made some improvements through its expansions you can seriously play the game on a laptop with an integrated video card... no lies. i had a buddy that played WoW like that. your computer isnt terrible but as someone said the 220 is the lower end card, with modification it can do better but it will never be "ultra" performance. if you want that start digging into that wallet and go buy a new video card.

    The GT220 is about 1/3rd the power of a HD4770, so I think it would be reasonable for it to run Rift on low.

    There's no point in comparing Rift to WoW because they're generations apart in terms of graphics.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.
