    So what's causing all the lag and slowdown? Is my computer dated already? Or are these bugs needed to be worked out?

    There was only one round of optimization so far, there is more to come. Performance will improve throughout the updates as the underperforming parts are identified.

    w00t! That's wonderful to hear! Glad it's not my video card that's fouled up!

    I read the title as Low latency issues, and thought "Why is someone complaining about it performing well?"
    I haven't finished my morning coffee yet...

    But for lag issues, I'm pretty much ignoring them at the moment. Optimization is generally the last thing that gets done. Obviously, if it's really bad, the Devs will have to address it earlier, so that testers can test, but otherwise you ignore it because when you add more stuff, you might need to optimize again.

    I posted this elsewhere the other day.

    I just did a set of tests on all of the options (apart from water reflection - I wasn't near any water) and these are the frame rate impacts on my machine (GTX 970, i5, 1920x1080).
    Ones with negligible impact not listed.
    FPS values are approximate based on standing at the edge of the pod crater, recording the FPS, running a circuit around it and checking the FPS value again. Of course movement affects the fps, but it's too hard to gauge the effect properly to get a consistent value.

    Model quality from med to high: -6 fps
    Terrain texture quality from low to high: -7 fps
    Camera effects (combined): -8 fps (motion blur -3 fps, the others were hard to individually determine, so I lumped them together).
    Shadow quality from low to ultra: -8 fps
    Anistropic texturing enabled: -2 fps
    Vsynch on: -17 fps

    Disregarding Vsynch which is default off, setting everything to off or the minimum value I get 49 fps. When I set everything to max (vsynch off) I get about 19 fps. The settings listed are the biggest contributors to the fps drop. When I set them to the minimum and leave others I don't see contributing in any significant way to performance (e.g. light quality, texture quality) I sit about 49 fps.

    EDIT: just tested Water reflections: -20 fps

    Very nicely tested!

    Very nicely indeed. Thank you for the data, TheMartian.
