Hi, please help me, i dont know what is wrong with my PC. I have 1 year old computer.
QuadCore AMD Phenom II X4 840, 3215 MHz
4096 MB (DDR3 SDRAM)
AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series (1024 MB)
HDD: 1000 GB
stable connection 1gb/s
i think i have good pc, but when i set the lowest details what is possible to set i have 30-40 fps in lions arch and about 20 fps while i am in WvWvW in 20vs20 fight.
is it normal? should i reinstal my pc? help me please
It's the AMD. Sorry to put in bluntly but there's no other way. There's a reason AMD is cheaper than intel. There's even a MattVisual video about this. The software I work with professionally also runs into this problem because AMD misses a few important instructions. Why cut corners on something that is expensive in the first place?
I'm running a 3 years old Intel i7 920 rig and it runs fine on medium-high settings. Only the largest WvW battles get me into trouble but LA and large bosses are all 30+ fps (which is plenty²). Not to mention I run a triple-screen set-up. It's the AMD CPU
² humans can't "see" more than 24fps although up to 60 may be less tiring on your eyes. Furthermore, depending on your monitor, it doesn't matter at all. If it has a hard cap on 50fps (European), don't fret over it.
