Embarrassingly, I put 8 hours into ARK since yesterday.
I have an i5-2500k @ 4.3ghz, 16GB RAM, and a 780 Classified....apparently they "optimized" it recently. I call bullshit. I have everything on LOW and I get 15-30 FPS. Fun game but I would never pay $30 for something that runs like dookie.
Also, don't play without friends, dem giant mosquitoes and diloposauraus will eat your face
might try forcing it to dx10, launch it with -sm4. Also setting everything to low is ok but the important stuff is the shadowing and check boxes, make sure all of that is off. It does still need alot of optimization though, on my 970 I can now average 60-80fps on dx11 and thats with ultra textures and medium-high on most settings but still gotta leave all the check boxes off. I think titans also still run about the same as 970s so that shows you they are doing something very wrong somewhere
They have improved it greatly since launch though, when it started I was doing ~20-25fps, so at least its more than double that now
