* about the artefacts ; the demo and Forceware 75.90 don't go well together. I dunno if you're using 75.90.....

I'm on 67.66 without any problems.
first this isn't sm3.0 from scratch like you say, this is the unreal engine with a tacked on code as well, and we all know how cpu hungry the unreal engine is, the only engine that i have heard that will be a true sm3.0 engine is unreal3 engine, once games come out using that engine then we can judge how good or bad sm3.0's performance is, for now all games using HDR doesn't make them a true 3.0 it's just 2.0 with some sugar coating on it.

the drivers i was using where also 67.66, i guess i might have to reinstall the game and see whats going on
