Hey all. I bought ESO for my friend a couple of days ago and we just got it installed on her iMac, the specifications are as follows:
General: iMac 27-inch, Mid-2010
Processor: 2.93 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory: 8GB 1333MHz DDR3
Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 5750, ~1GB VRAM (which does use the required 4.1 OpenGL version)
Yet for some reason, at character select and ingame, her FPS won't go above 8 at most, even with every single setting brought as low as possible. Bringing up the settings to medium-ish still sits at 7-8 FPS. I did a very basic tweak in the usersettings.txt (the GPUsmoothing from "10" to "0") and it didn't have any effect.
I feel like something is arbitrarily capping her FPS this way as changing settings has little to no effect when it normally would, but I really just can't figure it out. She regularly plays WoW at almost-maxed settings with extremely good FPS and I believe it was a similar case with GW2.
Any ideas on where I should at least start looking? Nothing in the Activity Monitor stood out as being high when I watched it while the game was loaded (and ingame).
