The overflow is a temporary large server for players who can't get into specific areas on Tyria because of population of players. So essentially everyone in a specific region comes here.
Sooner or later though the overflow will become obsolete due to upgrades etc needed per realm.
That usually happens with MMOs, it also comes down to how good your network is also, as it has to receive data about the other players weapon, name etc so the client knows what to show etc. And obviously damage, healing etc has to go to the server and back to any player in the vicinity.
There are definitely issues with SLI (possibly crossfire as well although I can only speak for SLI). My 680 sli setup can net me up to 120fps and as low as 20fps depending on the area (gpu usage drops in certain areas) the funny part is the gpu usage seems to drop when its needed most (group events, major cities) When exploring the wilds I get 90-99% usage and over 100fps, when I hit lions arch or a big group event usage drops into the 40s and 50s and my fps takes a huge plunge. Not sure if this is a driver problem or a problem with the client (seems like a problem with the client though considering it depends on the area but idk)cryfreedom66
