I am using the latest drives and I have tried a range of graphics cards including the GeForce GTX 680 and Radeon HD 7970. The test system has 16GB of DDR3 with the Intel Core i7-3960X processor.
When I say the resolution makes no difference I can go from 1024x768 to 2560x1600 and see no real difference. With maximum in game quality settings the GTX 680 renders around 60fps (vsync is disabled) at 2560x1600 though this is also the case at all other resolutions as well.
The frame rate is not capped either because it I walk up to a wall the frame rate sky rocks to well over 120fps.

but more seriouly, I think that if your Vsync is on, then you basically cap your fps at the refresh rate of your monitor (that is 60 hz= 60 fps) because you let windows do the correlation. If you turn it off, you will measure in improvement in the FPS most probably although you will also have some weird effects since not all the frame will be matching the rereshing rate of your monitor.

The only weird effect you should have with vsync turned off is tearing.
What I want to know is anyone else finding that they get the same performance at 1024x768 as they do at their native resolution.
This is not about me being able to play the game, I want to test the performance and compare visual settings and hardware configurations. I am having trouble doing that since the resolution seems to have no real impact on performance.

In most areas I find that I get around 45-60 fps (vsync capped), though in some areas with heavy vegetation or a lot of smoky effects it drops in the 30's. in WvW, I noticed that standing right by a gate to a keep with all kinds of action going on it actually drops to 15-30 fps.
All in all I'd say I'm experiencing slightly better performance than I did in SW: TOR during intense moments.
