The engine itself is absolutely astonishing. The physics have their quirks here and there but by and large, they just released the engine too soon IMO. I think the 8800 GTS/GTX cards should have been the minimum required card to run this game and I think that waiting until now would have been a better choice to help reduce the amount of gamers they forced to run at very low resolutions.

I'm dissapointed at the DX10 performance but then again, every game that is DX10 capable runs slower in DX10 mode except for the unreal engine games like GOW and Bioshock but those stay locked at 60 fps all the time so the machine really isn't being challenged in the first place.

I think Clear sky is a step in the right direction but the FPS difference in games like call of juarez, lost planet, crysis, etc when using DX10 vs DX9 is night and day difference in performance.

Makes me think it's not these game engines fault but DX10's fault.. or maybe just a fundamental lack of understanding of DX10 coding. Who knows. I'm no coder so I don't know much about any of that. All I know is that the unreal engine is the only engine that can successfully run in DX10 mode without a major drop in FPS.
