And for FPS, try to disable light bloom and to lower shadow as this 2 options have the biggest fps impact.


Hmm.. my good loads (Republic Fleet & Ship) are 30 seconds, while my bad loads (Balmorra & Correlia) are 2 minutes sometimes.

Loading of planet Voss was 33 secs on mine a few minutes ago. Republic feet and ships are loading faster.

This weekend I purchased the Intel 320 Series 120G Solid State Drive, I loaded it up as primary with windows 7, made sure to update video drivers, chipset, yada yada..

I've noticed a huge boost in speed from Power on to "ready to use" but unfortunately no differences within the game itself.

*Le sigh*

Back to the drawing board..
