My game was unplayable, I set everything to low and I had around 20-30 fps in the major spawn but drops to 10-20 during firefights.

After doing some research, I found out that running the game on high actually increases my fps to 30-40 in the major spawn zone and I had around 25-35 fps during the firefights, I also tweaked the UserOptions.ini and changed the renderdistance to 800 wich boosted my fps in the spawn zone to 60, and during firefights around 40.

I also had frequent crashes, couldn't play longer than 20 minutes but I fixed it by turning off my firewall, ambient occlusion and setting shadows to low.

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6400 ~3.2GHz (not overclocked)
GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5770
4GB RAM

Hardly a beast rig but I seem to be running the game better than most people with their expensive $2000+ computers

The goddamn games runs like shit and probably will always run like shit for AMD. I did the last optimization guide and it improved literally nothing.

Also, turning off firewall is stupid.

Is it really that bad on an AMD rig?  And yeah your firewall should not be an issue if set up properly.

Well, Ned. I run with everything on low and the only way I can get 60 fps is by looking at the ground in an empty place. If I'm actually doing something like shooting a gun at other people then it goes back to 20 fps or lower. So yes, it is really that bad.

they still are busy with optimizing (and thats official) so maybe in the near future it will be better, for now .. sucks to have AMD :D

Yeah they even said that AMD is poorly optimised, which is a real shame, but the whole optimisation thing is still going on

Good news though, next week I am getting a shiny 7950
