Just following up on this, my computer doesn’t seem to be terribly low end. I looked up the specs, and have no problems playing other games that are modern.
specs that matter:
Dell XPS 17
2nd Generation Intel Core i7-2760QM processor (2.40 GHz, with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.50 GHz)
17.3in FHD WLED AG (1920x1080)
NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M 3GB graphics with Optimus
(using a samsung evo 840 ssd as the main hdd
I’ve recently played starcraft 2, deus ex human revolution, world of warcraft, rift, all in the past 2 years without any troubles on reasonably high graphics settings, maybe not maxed out settings but these are games with similar system requirements.
Zwift is pretty hefty on resources, and even after exiting the game it’s clear that there is a possible memory leak or something that’s still bogging things down. Is there a diagnostic thing I can do and e-mail in for a closer look at this issue? The game does seem to be a bit laggy when in play at times (but I just thought it’s mostly due to being a beta issue) and I’ve had to set all my graphics settings to performance oriented which aren’t that way for other games.
