  1. Very Low FPS

    Just wanted to follow up - played for a few hours tonight in a full server on version 9.9. Fps tends to live around 50 at 1440p. I have all settings on High and most of the post options on except for lens flare and high res textures so I could definitely hit higher if I didn't prioritize graphics. Fps doesn't hamper the experience at all for me - devs rock!

    Whoa this update made all the difference. Fps hovers between 50-70 and never dips below 40. I can play now!
  3. Very Low FPS

    This guy! What an expert 3.33 6 core Xeon, 24gb ram, GTX 980 is a potato now! I was ignorant of the minimum specs required for this game because the minimum specs posted on Steam are: Intel Core i5-2500K CPU Memory: 8 GB RAM Graphics: Geforce GTX 770 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 Once again, I understand EA titles change rapidly. Not upset with the devs, they are making an amazing game with a small team. But can you read those minimum specs, look at my specs, and *honestly* tell me I should have expected 25fps average performance?
  4. Very Low FPS

    Thanks all for the replies! Well except for this wonderful gem: My crappy rig handles R6: Seige, PUBG, etc on high or max settings at 1440p and meets the minimum requirements posted on Steam. It's not the games fault and it's not my computer's fault. The issue is that the minimum specs posted on Steam are not accurate for the current state of the game. I'm not upset about it but if this conversation is getting old, that's why it keeps happening.
  5. Very Low FPS

    Ah that's super interesting about the IPC of the Xeon vs i5 Unfortunately overclocking won't work for my rig - I have windows running on a 2010 Mac Pro (I know, super weird). From what I've researched, I won't be able to get above 4 GHz much less 4.2 or 4.5. And intel only made a couple CPUs with marginally higher clock speeds for this socket so I'd have to build a whole new computer which is financially out of the question for me. Is there any sort of timeline on CPU optimization? I haven't been able to find anything on that from the devs and the game is approaching the 2 year mark in EA. Basically trying to decide if I should just get a refund for now since I can't play it in it's current state. Super bummed, I've been itching for a tactical shooter like this for a long time. The community is so welcoming compared to other games!
  6. Very Low FPS

    I just bought Squad a couple days ago and I've been experiencing pretty serious FPS drops in servers with more than 20 people in them. With some research around this forum, it appears that the CPU is often the bottleneck though I'm also seeing people having success tweaking the launch files and using certain Nvidia drivers. Like many other players, changing the graphics settings has minimal impact on the FPS. Here's my computer specs: Intel W3680 @ 3.33GHz GTX 980 --Driver version 385.41 24 GB ram My CPU clock speed is on the low end but it meets the minimum requirements on the Squad Steam page. I didn't expect it to impact FPS specifically, especially with the graphics settings turned down. 1. Anyone have any suggestions on setting adjustments I can make to improve the framerate? 2. Are there any plans to improve the game's utilization of multicore processors? My Xeon is very similar to a 6-core i7 and its surprisingly not enough to get over 30fps right now
