got into the eq2 beta test..
im running a 6800 ultra oc and need to find some info on the 5000+ graphics settings in the menu.
any ideas?, high quality stutters for me and even performance.

can somebody post some pictures of EQ2 with details and graphic settings all to max level?
i don't care if frames would be lower than 1 frame/sec on a 6800U :D i'm just curios to see EQ2 in full graphic details

From what I've read in magazine's, it runs like crap on even the best systems.

You can definately tweak it to look niiiiiice. World just came down..I'll try to look at the settings I found to balance things out.

EQ2 currently has some issues with the 6800 series thanks to Nvidia and SOE trying to get all the SM3.0 bugs out of it... Once these get ironed out it will be awsome.

When I first started beta and was using Dx9b it ran like a dream, once Dx9c released and we began testing it... performance hit hard... they still have many more tweaks to do... hopefully they will get it done within 3weeks since its launch is then...

i'm really super curios :P

will be interesting to look at the difference between pictures taken with playable settings and MAX settings, Sony always said their engine is developed for be great also in the years to come so i wanna see how much is possible increase the graphic in the years to come :)

Well... I tried to get a shot of the game at 1600x1200 with 4xAA/8xAF @ Extreme Settings but it was a no go. It would barely load... if at all. Computer just kept thinking, never gave me a chance to take the shot... 1024x768 res with the current settings ran choppy as hell aswell...

I believe them when they say it will be a long time till PC's can max out this game...

Then it seems even an AthlonFX-55 and 2 SLI GF6800U will not be enought for play at maxed settings. wow
