+1 Definitely smoother. I just tried out a few new singleplayer maps, like Physis 3 ( http://crymod.com/filebase.php?fileid=629
), which has a 3rd new island and it was a lot smoother (higher average fps) compared to Physis2 (with only 2 islands) before the patch.
The snow level in XP/DX9 with custom cfg has also a higher average framerate but something is up with DX10 in that level. I need to run some tests, it might have been something with my cfg.
