I'm experiencing really poor performance on my machine. I'm using 64 bit vista. Every second or so I experience a 1/4 of a second hitch in the ground game only. (Space game is fine). The number of players in the zone seems to have a big impact on the problem. I can play on low settings fine, recommended normally are broken but right now they're "ok" (I assume because people are logging off?).

I dont have it every second but it does hitch sometimes and I have a gtx 260 Mobile. It can be described as similar to memory issues I have experienced in the past with my older computer. After I move a certain distance it feels like it has to quickly load things. However, I have 4GB DDR3 RAM and my video card has 1GB GDDR3 so I don't think thats it unless this game's memory allocation is poor.
I can confirm now that it is all about the other players. I just did a mission solo. No other players is smooth as butter, other players = pain and suffering. Earth station makes me want to commit suicide. Now I lower my graphics settings to low every time I go there.
I am having the same stutering issues as you and their is no way i should be experiencing this IMO with the system i have and the quality of the gfx in this game. I have tried numerous settings and it doesnt seem to matter what i do it always stutters at some point..I can play crysis on max settings with better results then this.
I am running windows 7 64 bit with a
12 GB DDR3
Creative X-fi sound
1 TB 7200 rpm WD
24 " Samsung
22 " Acer
Mamba Razer mouse
Saitek Cyborg Keyboard
I know it is a beta and all, but this seems a little odd.
