That's overclocked triple HD 5870 Crossfire X results for STALKER CoP maxed @ 1920x1200. No mins below 35, averages that are sometimes above 95. Boss, right? Wrong. Hitch, hitch, hitch.

Again, turning AA off or dropping res to 1440x900 would magically smooth it out. Box was selected in the CCC and I set AA with the application.
May I ask why you use both DX10.1 and DX11 settings on the same bench?
