running sm 3.0 is useless the fps drop is huge.

I played the demo last week with BFG 6800 GT OC and suddenly the card shutdown itself and waiting for RMA the card. Now I just installed Leadtek Geforce 6600 GT card and fired up the demo and very surprised to see the game ran very smooth at 1024x768 16xAF with all the options maxed included HDR, the performance is much the same as it did on BFG 6800 GT OC. :D

No it not with Forceware 67.66 driver, it ran very smoothly. I can see you using older Forceware 65.73, you should update it to 67.66 and running SM 3.0 smoothly. ;)

sm 3.0 is faster than sm 2.0, it's HDR what slows down the GFX

Use this torrent link which I been downloaded, you will need an application to download torrent files, I recommend Bit Tornado which I am use as default program. :)

However I didnt noticed HDR slow down the GFX, I been turn off and on HDR to see the peformance differences, actually here are no differences, I am very impressed with HDR performance.

Well, what do you call 'smooth' ? Please use Fraps to give us a more clear idea on what kinda fps you're getting with that 6600GT.

With my PC (see SIG) I get a framerate from 20 to 70 @ 1024 x 768 , 32bits color , 72hz screen refreshrate fullscreen, 2xAA and 4xAF, ALL advanced SM3.0 submenu options enabled, trilinear filtering, high quality textures, hardware softshadow mapping. The only thing disabled is V-sync. My Nview Forceware setting is set to Quality and the GT @ 400/1100 on 67.66.

A framerate of 20 to 32 in places with lighting and HDR fx is still NOT what I call a very good framerate. It's playable, but I really hope the final code will run HDR fx at least 10 frames per second better. :(

Yes on my system in my signature at the bottom.

^ ok, but use FRAPS then, so you can give some solid numbers at which settings... otherwise it still won't make much sense. :confused:
