I don;t want to upgrade though becasue of the **** economy. Must.......resist.......reeesissstt.
My 4850 is smoking this game. I use the 8.10 beta drivers and it rocks. 1680x1050 4xAA 8xAF averages 60-80 with drops down to in the 30s if things get real heavy on the screen like in some scenarios. I haven't seen drops like that lately I guess because they are improving the performance some.

Yea, like I said, that's just what I recall from a R3D thread but maybe things smoothed out with a patch or two. The new cards certainly allow AA and AF to work the way it should, nice!




Wait, my card is 6 months old

I have a vague memory that the latest Catalysts really FIXED the game on the new Radeons.
But earlier versions had a bunch of issues with WAR.
Dunno if it fixed everything, or just that one guys issues though.

I have a "Radeon" myself, but those graphs suck. They never included the 1900x1200 res and anything below 2560x1600 is tested on cards 2 generations old or worse. These Gamespot guys sure must be into hardware...

My 8800GTX hates this game, it stutters like a stuttery thing.

1680x1050 0AA 0AF lol with 4 gigs of ram runs like ****e with 100 enemys attacking a keep.

POS nvidia card, i'm seriously getting sick of nvidia, my next card might be an ATI.

I found kicking my af to 16x made the game run BETTER on our GTX and GTS. Have you tried that yet?

PROBABLY. just enter this thread to add G92 has 96 texturing unit , 64 for GTX2xx , and only 48 for 4850/70.plus i have read somewhere ATI texture unit are a bit inferiour , in term of feature than nvidia counterpart. matter of FP32 stuff etc ...
i clearly see with armed assault (Heavily texture limited game) my 8800gts2 is superior at my 4850 and probably too my 4870. going 1x to 16x sample make fps divided per 2 . yes you heard well . but arma is heavily textured. all is texture on ground. leaf , grass , plant etc . a large set of them to filter.

is there a time trial demo of war ? i would like to test this game if possible. i'm still waiting patch for age of conan , and server merging , because world are nt enough populated .
