Performance issues
I know its an alpha so I shouldnt expect it to be optimized, but it gets totally unplayable after 5-10 min. It stutters and freezes and I get about 5fps, with constant 5 sec freezes every 10 sec.
No noticeable diffence between Uber and low settings.

My specs:
Dual Core 2,4 6600 (old cpu)
4 gb ram
GTX 560 TI

Could it be my old CPU which is causing it to be unplayable?
Supreme Commander also gets slowed down on large scale scenarios with 1000+ units, but thats only after 1h+ gameplay, which I think is an cpu issue.

its hard to say, your pc does look to be within the minimum specs.
it could be ram at this stage 4gb min 8gb recommended.
have you updated all your drivers?
also, the best place to ask these questions is in the alpha subforum or ubers own forum
edit; otherwise it will just get swamped

It's probably because of the price. The price is so high it's slowing the game down.

Just kidding, seriously. I just wanted to try the other side of the price argument. I'm very much in support of Uber and once my financial situation is better, I'll be purchasing this game regardless of where it is in the development cycle.

Moralitis is right though. Update all your drivers first.
4gigs of RAM is pretty meager by today's standards. I have 6gigs in my laptop and I think I still need more. Is it at least DDR3 RAM? Upgrading to a faster RAM type will help if it isn't already DDR3. You definitely need to look into getting a new CPU. I'm not up on prices for standalone processors, but you could check i5's, I would think those would have a decent entry fee and adequate power.

Tbh, at this point it could be your CPU, RAM or graphiccard. In two weeks it might be something else because some code was imporved.
Uber will optimize the PA's performance before release and I would not recommend to heavily invest into a PC upgrade unless you wanted to do it anyway.

Even using a very new, highly spec'd computer I am having issue.. game freezes up when trying to place the commander.. in the very beginning of the match
