Hopefully someone more tech minded can help me out here. I'm playing TERA and want to increase my FPS. I get anywhere from 20-35 right now. 30+ is perfectly fine but I'd like to eliminate those dips into the low 20's. Here are my system specs:
Windows 7 64-bit
Quad core 2.4 ghz
9800 GTX nvidia card 512 MB
Now my system easily surpasses the official recommended requirements but even turning the settings FAR down to low, and running at only 1280x1024 I still get dips into those 20's FPS. And here is the very strange part - adjusting most of the settings has no noticable affect on my FPS. Running the game on low graphics options, vs medium, vs high, and its all still 20-30 FPS.
This leads me to think perhaps my processor is limited the FPS and it doesn't matter about my graphics settings at all? Does TERA not use multiple cores correctly perhaps, so that its treating my 2.4 quad core like a 2.4 single core or dual core?
Any feedback/tips/tricks appreciated, thanks.
