40fps??!! How the hell? I'm running all max also at 19x10 4xAA. I'm pretty damn tolerant of low frame rates but this game is hitching so bad even at 25fps it drives me batty.

Edit: According to my 'Show CrossfireX Status Icon', CF is working perfectly fine in this game.

And GTA4 is better, no matter what Crainger says.

But I really do appreciate the fact I can actually play the game now.

Thanks,

Some dudes tests

I have no problem maxing out most games, ya know.. Just shoddy optimization kills things for me take this for example:

GTA IV Pre Patches w/ no Tweaks: Averaged 13fps

GTA IV Pre Patches w/ Tweaks: Averaged 20fps

GTA IV Patch 1 w/no Tweaks: Averaged 17fps

GTA IV Patch 1 w/ Tweaks: Averaged 23fps

GTA IV Patch 2 w/no Tweaks: Averaged 24fps

GTA IV Patch w/ Tweaks: Averaged 27fps


or

Saints Row 2 @ Low: Averaged 32fps & Stuttered like a *****

Saints Row 2 @ Med: Averaged 32fps & Stuttered like a *****

Saints Row 2 @ High: Averaged 32fps @ Stuttered like a *****



In Comparison:


Race Driver GRID: 1440x900 w/ 4xAA/16xAF & Ultra Settings = Solid, Unwavering 55fps

R6 Vegas 2: 1440x900 w/ 4xAA/16xAF & Maxed Settings = Solid, Unwavering 92fps

Left4Dead: 1440x900 w/ 8xAA/16xAF & Maxed Settings = Solid, Unwavering 85fps

Team Fortress 2: 1440x900 w/ 8xAA/16xAF & Maxed Settings = Solid, Unwavering 153fps

Counter Strike Source: 1440x900 w/ 8xAA/16xAF & Maxed Settings = Solid, Unwavering 234fps

Fallout 3: 1440x900 w/ 4xAA/16xAF & Ultra Settings = Solid, Unwavering 72fps

Far Cry 2 DX9: 1440x900 w/ 4xAA/16xAF & Ultra Settings = Solid, Unwavering 42fps

Far Cry 2 DX10: 1440x900 w/ 4xAA/16xAF & Ultra Settings = Solid, Micro Stuttering 28fps

A different dude:

Quote:
From what I've found all the lag spikes on my system are the result of a large number of page faults.

This is one of the most expense operations in terms of access time and I can't help but feel the only way performance will improve is if the memory management is done differently. You just can't generate 6000-8000 page faults per second and not take a performance hit.

One thing I've noticed that I've found odd is that very distance objects are loaded but then disappear only to reappear when they get a bit closer.

I really hope this is helpful, I love this game and want to help improve the experience.

Today received the game and it updated itself on Steam, the first thing I have noticed is the lack of 5.1 surround. Did it work for anyone here?

LOL, the game looks, runs and is basically total ass and you expect 5.1 sound to work.
