Honest answer: Not gonna happen. You either will drop settings or drop FPS in high-activity areas. You aren't going to be able to keep both. This is due to the limited capacity of a single core to process info in a given time.

So you are saying that no one is playing this game the way it's meant to be played with all the high detail beauty while maintaining smooth FPS during high activity battles? Is the hardware not available yet? Dual Core CPU's can't help with this load?

Smooth? Absolutely. I very rarely experience stuttering or disjointed frames. Smooth just means the game runs at a constant reasonable FPS (usually 24FPS or Higher, based on the individual's ability to perceive frame changes).

However, I haven't heard of anyone who can run at 60FPS 100% of the time on high settings. (or even 80% unless they are never in a crowd). Remember, with the exception of a few non-critical threads, the entire game only runs on 1 core, and therefore clock is king (and the fastest overclocks out there are what, 4.5ghz-ish?)
