Driver issue/conflict with older files?

Try newest drivers with a proper cleanout?
Card overheating?

the game does run better... ive set everything to enthusiast except for shadows which i keep on gamer and these are the tweaks im using
r_MotionBlur=0
r_DepthOfField=0
r_UseEdgeAA=0
r_SSAO=0 (biggest boost here)
im getting 40-60 fps at 1920x1200 in the first level so far... AF doesnt seem to be working for me... it just kills performance but it doesnt work on any surface so i keep it off

I just looked that up to find out what it was...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screen_...ient_Occlusion

That actually looks like the thing that was missing in the Warhead screens in the Crysis vs. Warhead comparison shots earlier...

Is that off by default at most settings?

Definitely runs better, everything set to enthusiast at 1920x1080, no issues with blurry textures or LOD either (DX9, XP, 177.83)

i havent checked in warhead but in the original crysis it is only on by default when using very high shaders... basically it just makes the lighting a tad better in some places... not worth the big performance drop (25%) at all IMO... i just started the snow level and the performance is a lot lower there...

I was actually expecting to see some and was ready to disable the texture streaming but atm (just arrived at the harbor) I really don't see why I should do that. Did you try to disable texture streaming?

SSAO is definitely enabled when you put everything on ethuasist/very high.

i havent tried disabling texture streaming... iirc that screws up shadows in some areas?... also the game is a big RAM hog and i noticed a few small stutters since its going over my 2GB of RAM (no choice since im on XP32)... so disabling texture streaming would probably fill my system RAM in no time even with 1GB of video RAM

So it's a mixed bag. Some say it runs better, some say it runs worse. The LOD seems to be up in the air about which one looks better as well. From the screens I've seen posted it looks like Crysis looked better, but until you're in the game it's probably hard to tell.

I don't notice one running any better than the other. I don't use fps counters, I just go by how the game runs (smoothness, movement, hiccups, etc).
