Default Re: ASUS EAH5870 - "Unofficial" Review

Average fps in Risen with 4xSSAA is out of this world, are you sure SSAA is working?. It performs almost the same than no AA

Didn't run a detailed analysis of image quality, but it did impact performance a bit. Something to follow up on though

There's a graphics glitch with the Witcher. Performance seemed good though.

Probably an OpenGL driver issue. I noticed a similar problem on a Radeon 9800 Pro

My mates 4850 would do similar things in Fallout 3 when he first started playing it. Don't think he saw it again after a while (driver update?) and it wasn't in any other games.

MikeC I downloaded the Wolf demo but the head bobbing was hard to take for long periods of time. Nice information and great graphs Mike.

I had similar problem in The Witcher with AA enabled so I disabled AA.

Thanks. As for the headbobbing, it can eliminated by adding the line seta g_noViewBob "1" in the wolf.cfg file.

The wolf.cfg file is located here on Vista:

\users\"username"\appdata\local\id software\wolfsp\base\wolf.cfg

the head bobbing in wolf is really bad. i thought people were exaggerating about it, but it feels like they took the mw1 and and times it by 10.
