Hey all,

  I was wondering if anyone could share their system specs and video settings. I just installed a GTX1080 about a week ago with an older i7-3770K and for the most part I'm seeing frame rates above 60 at 10 settings and 1920 x 1080 resolution. However, in certain areas like Suramar, standing at the flight master at Meredil and facing Suramar city where you see the water and the trees and the city in the background, my frame rate drops to 35-40.

  Is anyone seeing similar frame rates? The GPU seems to only be at 30% power so I'm not sure if adding a second one would help. The CPU doesn't seem loaded up either. Would it help to upgrade to a 6700K or a 6850K? How about another graphics card?

 

Anyone with any input or experience to share is appreciated.

I'm not enough of a computer whizz to actually help with your issue, but if it helps, I'm running 2x 980s, an i7-4770 and everything runs at 60+ for me except Dalaran sewer. Nothing runs that place properly :(

Perhaps there are certain settings you can turn down that won't affect visuals much, but will cut down the required power? Hopefully someone can help!

I don’t think that the CPU or GPU should be the problem. What’s the ram usage? And how much memory do the add-ons take? Look if there’s a difference between where you’ve the problems and where you don’t. You also could try to reduce the graphic settings a little bit and see if that changes something (if not you at least know its not the GPU). Do you have frame drops when there are more people around? Like in Raids etc.? If not it could just be that the suramare region is poorly implemented when it comes to hardware optimization

I'm running i5 6600K with 8Gb RAM, AMD Radeon R9 380 and Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB as a Hard Drive.

Don't have any WoW issues, can raid Mythic and stream, have fps between 60-90 in every place (30 fps in the Underbelly but I'm not into PvP so normally not coming there).

Good point Erel. It's also worth noting that I have 4x8GB HyperX RAM. Just in addition to the stats from above.

Hey all thanks for the replies.

I don't really see frame rate drops when there's more people around. It's more specific areas. Suramar at the Meredil flight master facing towards the city I get 40 FPS. I have everything maxed and my GPU is down clocked (it will clock up or down based on load) to 1200 from 1700 max and using 20% power and 40% of its rendering capability at that frequency. I can get the frame rates up but it's frustrating having a GPU that's not even loaded up and having to lower settings.

 

If I go to 7 on view distance and environment details then the FPS will go to 60+. If I leave them at 10 and I change shadows to low then the FPS will go to 50+. Highmountain the FPS stays at 60+ with all settings cranked. I have 16 gigs of RAM too.

 

Anyone out there running everything maxed and can check their FPS at the Suramar Meredil flight master facing the city? Maybe even go stand on the little bridge by the water. When I do this there are maybe 3 or 4 people in the area.

I would say check your addons first. I was having problems in Dal when hearthing or loading into then i turned off my cosmetic addons like sexymap and all the problems went away.

      Our returing player guide is stuffed with relevant information for players that haven't played WoW for a  while and they'd like to give it a go in 7.3.
      If you haven't played WoW for a while, we have a guide for you with all relevant information.
      The main goal of the guide is to keep it short and simple.
      General Tips
      In Patch 7.3, the 3rd relic slot will be unlocked immediately once you reach 110 and there's no need to complete individual campaigns all over again. (Source) You can forget about the Broken Shore content. Artifact Knowledge is now shared. All player start at AK Level 41 and will automatically gain 1 AK Level per week. Only one new Legendary item is added in 7.3. Any player that defeats Argus the Unmaker can get Insignia of the Grand Army. It's rewarded from the quest called The Death of a Titan. More details about the Netherlight Crucible can be found here. Two new factions are added in Patch 7.3: Argussian Reach & Army of the Light, both having new emissary quests. A new Heirloom with an interesting affix was added to the game.  Man'ari Training Amulet. Sacrifice 10% HP to gain 40% increased movement speed for 10 seconds. There are no plans to enable Draenor flying for those that haven't unlocked Draenor Pathfinder. Patch 7.3 Content Rollout
      Not all 7.3 content will be available on day 1.From the latest developer Q/A, the content rollout should look like this:
      Week 1
      Krokuun and the first two chapters of the Argus story will unlock.   Players will be able to unlock Krokuun World Quests. Week 2
      The second Argus zone Mac'Aree will become available and with it the third and fourth chapter of the Argus story. Once you progress through those chapters, you will gain access to Mac'aree World Quests, Kil'jaeden's Terrace World Quests and Western Mac'Aree World Quests. Invasion Points will also open. Week 3
      The last week marks the opening of Argus's last zone, Antoran Wastes. Players will gain access to Antoran Wastes World Quests, the Netherlight Crucible and the new dungeon - Seat of the Triumvirate. All you need to know at this point is that Argus has three zones and once you finish the story in each zone, you will gain access to world quests.
      Reputation Catch-up
      We datamined two Bind-to-Account items related to reputation catch-up with Broken Isles & Argus factions. Sources remain unknown for now. Nathrezim Tome of Manipulation increases rep gains with Broken Isles factions by 200% for 2 hours. The item's intended for alts and doesn't work past level 109. Demon's Soulstone can only be used on Argus and the item increases your reputation standing by 1,000 with all factions. It's good for catching up reputation with the Nightfallen. Gear Catch-up
      New Relinquished items are being added in 7.3 with a base item level of 910. (Source) All items can be purchased for 650 Veiled Argunite (a new currency from Argus World Quests). Crafted 7.3 gear is of ilvl 885 and can be upgraded with Primal Sargerite via Primal Obliterum up to item level 935. Old crafted gear can't be upgraded past 900. You can disenchant it into Chaos Crystal. There's a new shoulder enchant on Argus that will help you farm Primal Sargerite. More information can be found here. Dungeons have had their ilvl increased by 20 item levels on every difficulty. Normal: ilvl 845 (was 825) Heroic: ilvl 865 (was 845) Mythic: ilvl 885 (was 865) World Quest rewards scale up to item level 895. (Source) With the introduction of the Netherlight Crucible, you can now target specific relic types. Antorus the Burning Throne
      The raid won't open immediately with 7.3, but at a later point (probably in Patch 7.3.5). Once Antorus opens, Legendary items will have a base item level of 1,000. (Source) For more information about Patch 7.3, check out our Argus hub.
