Sudden boost in performance?!
Alan Wake only ran at about 30-40 fps on my machine since I got the game. Just now though, after giving my computer's guts a routine cleaning and reseating the GPU...the game runs at a perfect, consistent 60! Completely out of the blue. Was there a patch or something while I was cleaning? Maybe my GPU just wasn't completely seated.

There hasn't been any patch for more than 2 years. There must have been something bottlenecking your GPU.

Weird. Well no complaints here. Whatever happened is making the game run beautifully now.

Just out of curiosity, what's your GPU and what graphics settings are you using to get the game running at 60fps?

I'm using a Radeon HD7850 and I have everything set to High except for SSAO, Volumetric Light Filtering, and Shadow Quality, which are set to Low or Off. Anti-Aliasing is set to X2 and Anisotropic Filtering is set to X8. My resolution is set to my monitor's native, 1680x1050.

I did a loooot of tinkering with settings when I was trying to get this game to stay above at least 30 consistently. After I cleaned out all of the guts in my computer, bam. Game's running at 60 on those settings. Everything still looks beautiful, so the lower settings aren't much of a sacrifice.

Normally with such a GPU, you should be able to run the game maxed out without problem. I have a NVIDIA GTX765M and I run the game maxed out (except for anisotropy and antialiasing which I always disable) at 60fps as well in 1366x768.

Seriously guys, there is absolutely no reason in this day and age to run at less than 16x Anisotropic Filtering. It costs you 2-3 fps MAX and improves image quality significantly.

Yeah, AF is pretty much free these days.
