I consider Darkmeyer and Burthope to be the benchmarks because they are the most graphically demanding (and also the most poorly optimised). In Darkmeyer I was up from 10+ FPS on min to 25-30 on all max settings, and from 15+ FPS on max to 50 FPS in Burthope, also at max settings.
I'm impressed, although this update was long overdue, and rather smart of them to release this after a controversial update to an already controversial update.

FPS on my mac seems to be worse now ='[
But then it could just be it needs a restart cause it's being sluggish in general today.

So now I can actually rotate my camera without suffering deathly lag and run around areas like Edgeville without wanting to cringe at the thought of a whitescreen. Now I might actually do some things again since I won't suffer so much for it.

I always had like 5 fps before when using hd and low detail, now I'm 20 fps at Hd, it seems like 50 too, no lag.

Mines seems the same as before the update however I'm sure it's probably 5-10 frames better, I wonder if entering a dg etc gives me a 3 seconds freeze and the tables alraeady been looted though.

People who say "my pc should be able to run 50 fps max" that really does depend on resizeable/fixed screen and the area you're playing such as in a dungeon you run 40-50 fps and places like runespan i hit 24-34 depending on what I'm doing, varrock GE or standing in a random area such as Lumbridge you won't though! :) because there aren't many animations going on, are there? :P

Edit - My loads times now seem .5/s as opposed to 3/s when loading areas with a lot going on, that was my biggest issue :P

I wonder if that means I can farm fight-kiln for gp now without freezing for 3 seconds on Jad's first attack and worrying I might have died!

This is NOT Optimus.

Hey N R V,

Brilliant to see you back into the swing of things!
To answer your questions:
1) Yes, we definitely have more planned. We've no intention of standing still and will continue to press on with additional performance enhancing updates. Stay tuned!
2) No, this wasn't Optimus, just a performance patch. Optimus is still in the works!
Thanks guys,

Draz have you ever tried to allocate your Java more RAM to see if that helps a little? or making your Java high priority through task manager, it helps with some specs of computer, unless it's more of a GPU problem of course :P

Mines isn't the healthiest of laptops :P If I left it into a PC shop to get it cleaned up, it'd run faster than Usaine Bolt!

Its definitely improved though need time to understand it properly.

Pretty weird that its a smooth animation atm. If it stays like it is then its kinda crazy how long its been performing badly that I forgotten how it used to be. I running quite nicely atm with max + AA + Bloom. (Before it ran pretty bad no matter the settings.)

I want to see a random event take me away to see if it lags or not on teleport.

Good work jagex staff that worked on this one. I hope management gave you some free spins as a reward. (Um wow I got a spin ticket siphoning the -moment- I wrote that.)
