If you are experiencing lower framerates than normal when landing on a planet, you may wish to lower your graphical quality settings. Please also make sure that you have updated your graphics drivers to ensure you are getting the best performance possible from your card.
It's worth noting that when the Horizons Season Pass was released, our specifications for running the game on 'high' graphics quality were raised quite substantially, to best allow us to showcase the beautiful planetary landscapes that we had created.
Most graphics cards will display Elite Dangerous at a high frame-rate but you may need to lower your graphical settings to maintain this whilst on planets.
If you are getting especially bad performance while on or near planets, then we recommend that you customise your graphics profile. Specifically, lowering the last three options shown above should show some improvement.
