im very impressed, my fps just doubled
They improved the fps, at least for me.
Now at 1920x1080(low) i can get 30~70 all the time.
I don't know why, but my fps is higher in sPvP than when i'm alone in the woods killing stuff.
Game still running like crap, FPS wise. Something that a stress test wouldn't affect mind you. Wishful thinkers always say "oh it's just beta", but release never changes that much from beta.
Ran smoothly, as usual capped at 120fps, no drops, no stutters, everything on max @ 1080p.
they have balanced cpu - gpu a bit. last stress test my GPUs were running at 100%, now they were at like 90% ish, but cpu had came up from like 40-50% to 70-80% for me
GPU: Asus DCII 780 @ 1228 / 6700 CPU: i2500k @ 4,8 Ghz Motherboard: P8Z68-VPRO PSU: Corsair TX 850W
CPU-Cooler: Hyper 212 EVO Ram: Corsair 2x 4gb = 8gb CL9 1600mhz
Monitor: Asus PB278Q 27inch 2560x1440 Mouse: G500s Keyboard: QPAD MK-85 Headset: Corsair 1500 SSD: Intel 520, 240gb
It's over nooooooooooo *sadface*. Everything ran amazingly though, and only had a bit of lag at some point.
arrived late :C! 1 hour is not long enough :'c!
OMG.... I had never tried WvW before.... holy ballz that's awesome. But I am going to HAVE to get a new Vidcard if I want to do it extensively. I know 1 fps is probably just the stress test, but I know my machine and I know that I probably won't get much better than that after launch. Plus, I need a new vid card anyway (using a GT 9600 atm).
This last stress test did decide it for me, I'll be rollin' a Norn Warrior. Bow/dual axes for me.

If only every hour went by that fast until release.
Framerate improved slightly, maybe by 2 or 3.
