Default Re: Far Cry 61.76 Vs 61.77

Lately I have been trying my rig at 3.68 with 2-2-2-5 timings on the ram and my mobo's GAT at Street racer, which is one up from what I can run at 3.9. The difference with the 61.77 driver(3dmark03) is now 13241 at 3.9 and 13198 at 3.68. The tighter ram timings and higher acceleration seem to offset the higher clock to a degree. We are only talking about 43 3dmark03 marks.Another thing I like is I can run my CPU at default voltage for the 3.68 instead of the mandatory 1.675 to get 3.9.

The 61.77 driver does great with Far Cry. Anyone running everything at very-high/ultra high that wants to see a real FPS boost at 1600 res, just drop your shadows to medium. Yes you lose the nice shadows on your weapon but you gain a large amount of FPS. One point in training for me went from 63 FPS all the way up to a steady 80.
