unable to maintain playable framerate

Recommended Posts

I don't have what you would call a 'gaming rig':


 Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
       System Model: Satellite C55-A
               BIOS: 1.20
          Processor: Intel® Pentium® CPU 2020M @ 2.40GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
             Memory: 6144MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 6024MB RAM
          Page File: 4293MB used, 7874MB available
        Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS
    DirectX Version: DirectX 11


Intel HD graphics chipset.


That said, I was hoping to be able to run Pillars on moderate to low settings without the fps dropping into single digits.  Now, the final game will obviously have customizable visuals - but man oh man, when four or five spells/abilities fire all at once the game chugs hard (particularly when the abilities are particle-intensive, like fire for example).


What do you think?  Are any of you with a comp built for games having unexpected performance issues?  Or should I just put some cash down so that I can have a decent machine?

You aren't the only one, the game itself plays fine for me but the menus have MASSIVE performance issues for me currently (1-2 seconds of hangtime between clicks), but thats to be expected with a beta I'd think lots of strange performance issues gonna start showing up.


From memory vid card, processor and memory for my machine are as stated below:

Vid Card: ATI Radeon HD 5700

Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.2GHZ

Memory: 8192mb Ram

i7, 765m, 8gb, ssd - no issues.

I see the dreams so marvelously sad


The creeks of land so solid and encrusted


Where wave and tide against the shore is busted


While chanting by the moonlit twilight's bed
