The Alpha game lags very much for me when I'm trying CO-OP (5-15 FPS). When I'm in the editor the game lags only when I'm in a vehicle (15-25 FPS). I'm getting less FPS if I lower the resolution from 1280x1024 to 800x600 and set the graphics to low.

My specifications are AMD Phenom X4 9650 2.3 GHz, 4 GB of memory, NVIDIA GeForce 560 Ti 1 GB.
Was does "runs great so far" means from your perspective?
I'm getting around 30 fps in the Editor with only 1 Charakter spawned (me).
We were setting up a 40 player dedicated server (PvP) and it was playable for the most time (around 20-30 fps) but flying around in a helicopter over the map dropped my fps to 10-15.
Note: I had the same results in ARMA 2 but with way more characters (AI/Players).
I hope that this issue gets resolved/fixed very soon since it's a funkiller and THE MAJOR PROBLEM of the ARMA series (<- my opinion).
When I am in ground Vehicles my CPU will routinely spike up to 100% causing a momentary freeze. I first noticed it in the Vehicle Showcase, and just tried it in the CoOp Map, wan't nearly as bad but it happens there also.
CPU: Core2 Duo E8500 Clock 3.7
ATI Radeon HD 5870
I haven't noticed much of a performance hit on foot or in the air showcase.
In many of the co-op missions that we have done, I am seeing similar frames than that of those I Was getting in ARMA 2 missions. I think they are about the same if not better already ans I suspect that they will continue to get enhanced.
If you have a high amount of GPU memory set it to high, it offloads a lot of the CPU workload.
For the rest of that, look into your drivers & your mobos.
From what i've read the game can lag pretty badly after 40 bots.
CPU- Intel i5 3450 stock @ 3.1GHz
GPU- 2x Nvidia 670s in SLI, factory overclocked EVGA (FTW Edition)
MEM- 8GB 1333MHz PC3 10600 @ stock clocks
SSD- Intel 520 Series Cherryvile 120GB
Note: With all setting maxed in the game, running at a resolution of 1920x1200 I average anywhere from 16 to 22 frames per second. While I expect that number to increase with optimized drivers from Nvidia at a later date, it's stunningly low, even for an alpha test. I noted both GPUs at about 50% utilization walking around in-game, seems odd. Hope this info helps.
