I have been reading this forum long enough to be very impressed with the technical knowledge people have here. Most of the discussion is over my head, frankly.
What I have understood is that you can't randomly throw a modern system at GW2 and expect performance improvement because it uses a single threaded engine from long, long ago.
I am thinking about giving my computer to a nephew who has an eight year old rig and zero money, but I don't want to buy something that should be better and have it be worse for GW2.
If I were to purchase a mid-level Digital Storm or something like that, what would be the optimal [email protected] specs?
Wvw lag. Sometimes the whole screen freezes for 1 or 2 seconds. More often, in battle, the character can move but no mouse is visible and no spells can't be used. This lasts 2 seconds, or in other words, you are probably dead.
I am on 100 MB internet, so I doubt that is the source of the problem.
My two year old system
Alienware Aurora 7
i7-8700 3.2 ghz 3.19 ghz (not overclocked)
16 GB RAM
Windows 10 home
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070.
I run minimum graphics setting on everything.
I am using a Predator Gsync Monitor at 100mhz connected with Display Port cable. In WVW it does not seem to be any different performance wise than a 480 p sony TV connected via HDMI. It has better resolution, but that's about it.
So.... Can this even be improved for GW2? I am thinking an overclocked cpu and faster ram might help.
