Well, I've got an i5 2400S w/ a 6750M 512MB, and at 1080p, on High but with shadows set to Low, with no AA or FXAA and 8xAF, and with Hi-Res textures installed, I'm getting about 25-30 FPS. The 6750M is about equivalent to a 6550 or something like that, so I'd say you'd get significantly more than what I'm getting.

I definitely love the simplicity, but I was modded before the workshop. However getting a faster horse and a dozen other mods at the click of a bottom is extremely nice. I would love to see the STALKER games put in the workshop, along with morrowind and oblivion. Not that that will ever happen...

So i meet the recommended requirements. What's the reason for the stuttering after the Bethesda texutre pack, slow hard disk or low vram?

For the Texture pack Bethesda suggests the specs to be well over recommended.

How much is your VRAM?

Processor maybe. Before 1.4 Skyrim pretty much demanded Sandy Bridges for ultra to be smooth, not sure if 1.4 changed that, but I suspect it might have. Games a cpu hog more than a gpu hog. I doubt the 1gb vram is the problem, my 5870 is keeping up just fine.

My 1090T has run ultra just fine with a 5870 (2GB) since day 1... of course the 1.4 patch has improved performance, but it is not true stating that the game demands a Sandy Bridge processor.

I'm going to have to agree with Chimeracaust with his comment about Sandy Bridge before 1.4. I had a Phenom X4 955 @ 4.0 GHz and my 6970 when Skyrim first came out. The only place I'd hit 60 fps was in caves and looking up at the sky when running on Ultra. Sure I got "sufficient" frames everywhere, and 30 fps is all you need but 60 fps makes a big difference in smoothness when panning the screen. The only place where it dropped below 30 fps was the dreaded tree in Whiterun. Upgraded to a 2600k over the holidays and became completely GPU bound from that point on. I was GPU bound before SkyBoost, TESVAL, or 1.4 came out.... this thing is hellafast. But I also agree that with 1.4 and what SkyBoost and TESVal did I don't think a Sandy Bridge is really needed at this point. The point Chimercaust was trying to make was that a Sandy Bridge was required to get 50-60 FPS "everywhere" in the game before 1.4. No doubt that your 1090T did the job, but AMD's performance in Gamebyro games is subpar to Intel to say the least. Not trying to start a war, but I bought my new processor with this primary consideration in mind. There's a reason why SB was hugely recommended when this game came out.

A picture of the amazing performance increases with an overclocked processor too. If I was still CPU bound I'd get Ivy Bridge first day it comes out ^_^

Okay... now set the graphs aside and comb through the 6000+ comments in this thread. Users across all hardware platforms have had "smoothness" issues since day one. At times my 1090T was running the game smooth as silk on Ultra, while certain i7/580 users were complaining of stuttering and crashing. Stating the obvious that and i7 will give you more frames than an X6 does not give the whole picture... and stating that the game "demands" a sandy bridge processor is just irresponsible IMO.

I've been running hitchless and (subjectively) smooth on an overclocked PHII X3 and 1GB 5850, so I wouldn't consider a SB processor to even be a recommendation for someone in my situation with my desires. IMO it would be better to discuss the implications of the processor and not jump to the value declaration of it demanding a certain processor. The graphs speak for themselves, but not necessarily of what is required for a certain experience.

I guess I'm trying to say that better doesn't equal required.
