Default Re: So I got second GTX280

Other games, supposedly not optimised gain more than that... What would true optimization be? Every game gains 50% over the last generation, but Crysis gains 100%... Instead, its the other way around. Most games gain 60-70%, while Crysis gains much less, hence not optimized...

Similar to Doom 3 and the 6800... All games had the X800XT-PE and the 6800U very close, except Doom 3 where the 6800U buried the X800... That was actual optimization because the specific game did not represent the card's overall performance...

Has it ever occured to you that not every game scales the same? No card is going to do any better right now because the game itself is coded so poorly. Nvidia did the best they could with the game code they had to work with. The proof is in the framerate results compared to the Radeon 4870 which tanks in Crysis yet runs 90% of the speed of the 280 in almost every other game. Two different architectures, Nvidia chose the one that was more Crysis friendly. Hopefully that explains it better for you.
