Any idea why I get unplayable low fps on this, my spec should handle it no ploblem, I have tried the usual fixes it suggests involving pre rendered cores, lowering shadows etc etc, but even so I thought my rig should kill it at high ??

You've probably heard, but it's now DX11. That'll fix it!

It's worth a shot. But i doubt you can run the game on Intel HD Graphics with that CPU unless your willing to play on the lowest possible settings.

I'd say low settings, but also tone down the res to 720p. After all, its a competitive multiplayer game. You dont want to get beat down, just for good looking graphics :)
