I've been a subscriber since release. During the beta, I had awesome fps with my system at 1440x2560. My system specs are as follows:
CPU: AMD FX-8320 @ 4.8Ghz
GPU: 2 Radeon 7950s at 1050Mhz
RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengence @
Display: 27" 1440x2560 monitor
SSD with Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 drivers.
Now, I haven't been playing in months. Can't say the exact date, but it's been since at least July since I've been playing. The changes in my system have been an added Radeon HD 7950, upgraded OS from Win 7, multiple drivers from AMD.
I have abysmal fps. In areas like Deshaan in the middle of nowhere I'm getting 25 fps at best. The weird part is, this is regardless of resolution, regardless of driver (went back to 14.4 and no difference at all), and regardless of particle and distance settings.
What is going on? I thought it was caused by my OS being Server 2012 R2, but this is the only game that has suffered any fps issues. I've tried multiple drivers and literally have had NO change as far as fps. I've disabled crossfire and played with a single card, no change. I went so far as to change any/all overclock settings to default and playing with a single card. I installed windows 8.1 and still had the same awful frame rate.
Is there something I've missed in the forums? I can't think of a single thing I've not already completed. I've tried every setting in ESO imaginable and it's pretty much nonstop terrible. I've unplugged GPUs, re-seated GPUs, used different PCIe slots and no dice. How can I play a game in beta with a lesser system and get worse fps?
Please, tell me there is something stupid I've missed. I've paid for this game since release and can't play it now that I want to...
