Just look at it!!! Shaders, DX9, Insane textures, amazing draw distances. What in the hell would lead anyone to believe its CPU dependant??!?!?!?
Physics and AI? Meh, a 2.4 is more than enough to handle that.
We're talking about the card not being able to feed data to the CPU and Vice versa,
Bandwith would make a huge issue on this.
Theres also the fact that the 5900 Non Ultra isnt really comparable to a 9800 Pro or 9800XT,
Its below both in terms of where it was marketed at originally. The 5900 doesnt even hit 3000 Multi texturing
I dont doubt the game ran better on the ATI hardware,I really dont, But I havent notice absymal frame rates in the game either.
