    HELP PLEASE: Low FPS in Planetside 2 due to CPU?

    katsmeow

      HISTORY:

      So I understand that Planetside 2 is a CPU game. Last November, my R6950 Twin Frozr II started showing signs that it was time to retire before death. I replaced it with a Radeon RX 480 4GB. I thought I would get maybe 20 more frames at least. Nope. In fact, I swear that it's worse and it's not helping that they are 'dumbing down' the game for performance as of late.  Sure, I could go play other games (and do at great fps), but I love this game and well....I want to get my money worth. lol

       

      QUESTIONS:

      ***I've tried to adjust in the ini files for the game.

      ***I've tried (need assistance) on adjusting in the Radeon settings.

      ***If it's the CPU - can someone explain why and what would be a descent upgrade without spending a lot? Unemployed right now.

      ***I have a EVGA GTX970 sitting in a box, would I be better off using this card?
