I have a friend who's in my clan who runs a setup very similar to mine... he has a Phenom II x4 @ 3.4ghz with a single 5770 (performs equal to 4850/4870) ... but he has 8gb RAM.

He SAYS he's running @ 1680x1050, with everything on high, with 8xAA and 8xAF. Vsync is off, HBAO is on... and he's reporting 80-90fps.

Why the big disparity?

It's not the video card, is it Does the soft shadows DX11 path for the 5770 speed things up? I don't think so, at this point I think it's that his rig has 4gb more RAM.

It'd be nice if someone here could test this game with 4gb RAM vs 8. Anyone up for it?

He's lying. There's no way he's getting those kind of frames with a 5770 no matter the amount of ram, especially with 8xAA.
