So is this game terribly optimized, or are they just pushing the limits of DirectX9? Or both?

My friend plays on old laptop with Intel P8600 and integrated GPU with 20-35 fps. It's quite good when you realise that is a mobile cpu released 9 years ago.

Well, with my current PC and my last one, which was a Phenom II x2 545 and GT 610, I average about 35fps on the highest and lowest settings, rarely hitting max CPU or GPU usage. Is it just because Im not using an SSD? Or maybe my CPU single thread performance? Or I need more RAM? I just cant figure it out.

If you changed graphic settings and it doesn't work so that's definitely CPU bottlenecking. SSD give you only quicker loading of maps.

well, i don't know about the r7 240, but i do know about the hd 6570 which is almost the same, that card runs the game at medium-high, 40 fps (at 1024x1280 resolution, which is 25% more pixels to fill than 768x1366),


This means that you can play it on 768p at medium high with 40-50 fps. (this will be lower when in a world boss event)

My guess - Ultra 1080p 55-60 fps most of the time. Can drop in cities to 45-50 fps. If doing WvW/World bosses can drop to 30-40 fps if 100-250 people (Everyone will get fps drops in those cases, it's the game engine limitation).
