I can't be sure that the following would work with those of you who are experiencing poor performance on Intel systems, but it may well do. If someone with an Intel system could test it out and let us know that would be good. I however know for a fact that with Deneb and Thuban processors you should experience an almost 100% increase in FPS and you might well find that you're no longer CPU bound, but GPU bound which is the way it should be. While the following settings can be found on all OS's this information has only been confirmed to work with Windows 7 X64 systems. Again feel free to test and see if it improves things for you and post back your findings. Firstly in order to achieve this fix you will need to have at least 6GB of RAM although 8GB+ is desirable. 1. Click Start and then right click on Computer and select "Properties" from the list. 2. Click the "Advanced system settings" link on the left. 3. From the System Properties menu select the "Advanced tab" 4. Click the "Settings" button. 5. Select the "Advanced" tab and click "Change". 6. Now for all hard drives ensure that the "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" is unticked. 7. Set each hard drive to "No Paging file" and then click the "Set" button. 8. Click OK and exit out. 9. Reboot your PC. What this has done is turn the paging file off that the operating system uses as a means of swapping things out of memory onto the hard drive. Providing you have enough memory and a 64bit OS this is a completely redundant process mainly used for low memory systems. In the case of Planetside 2, it's getting a hell of a lot of new data every time you travel to a new area and thus it drops the old information out of memory and dumps it into the paging file on your hard drive. Now this process is incredibly inefficient and thus the application could be bottlenecked by either the speed of the hard drive or the SATA bus. By turning it off you're removing that bottleneck and ensuring it uses the full 4GB it can address in the 32bit client. This is an optional setting which won't hurt to set: 1. Go to the run box and type in the following command: msconfig 2. Select the "Boot" tab. 3. Click the "Advanced Options" button. 4. Tick the "Number of processors" checkbox and select the maximum number you have available. 5. Reboot your PC. For those of you with Bulldozer processors you might want to play around with this setting as technically it's mainly for diagnostic purposes, but as Windows 7 doesn't understand how to schedule AMD's 8 core chips properly it might be useful for setting the system to 6 cores. Although the same should be able to be achieved by setting affinity on the Planetside 2 process to just 6 rather than all 8. This is by no means a complete fix as it's it's quite obvious that the game is still poorly optimised and doesn't utilise even remotely a 100% of the CPU's power on top end systems and If there was any game that badly needed a 64 bit client it would be Planetside 2. Thanks to Frost for discovering this rather simple, but effective tweak.
