today i was monitoring cpu/gpu usage ingame and I noticed that in WvW mass pvp the gpu usage drops to 30-40%, while elsewhere it's like 80%+. CPU usage is standard I guess (70%+ all the time, 90%+ in crowded areas ). I'm no IT specialist so I'm just wondering if it's normal/ have anyone experienced this too? I just found that quite weird.

I have average of 30 FPS, with drops to ~10 FPS in WvW mass fights (low-medium auto select), which I guess is acceptable according to my configuration. It's just that GPU usage I'm wondering.

This is something that more and more people are noticing - neither the CPU or the GPU usage is anywhere near 100%, even though fps is in the low digits. It seems as if there's something "invisible" bottlenecking the performance for some players. I'm on a much beefier rig than you, a i7-860 @ 3.6Ghz and GTX670OC, but still I run around with 15-25 fps in bigger fights, while even then the CPU and GPU usage hovers around 50-60%. Doesn't make much sense, I haven't seen any other game behave like this.

My rig:
Intel i5 2500K @4.5GHz
Geforce GTX 680 Overlocked
8 GB 1333 Ram
120 GB SSD
Nvidia 3D Vision 2

Guild Wars 2 was unplayable,.. low fps (15-60) and when i turned the camera around it was just pain in my eyes. (14-30)

I did run the DDR in Single Channel Mode.

I reinstalled my Ram for Dual Channel Mode.
(if u use a ramkit like me with 2x 4GB, dont install them in slot 1 and 2, install them into slot 1 and slot 3 to get them running in dual channel mode, or just take a look in your motherboards manual.)

Now i run it with all settings on high with 60-120 fps in 2D Mode.
3D Mode runs now perfect too ;)

Hope it works for you too ;)
