Not only are the fps poor but the game looks like crap on top of it. At least GTA IV looks good.

The game can look good at times, mainly due to it being smooth and crisp looking, compared to GTA4 which looks rough and jagged.

Performance this terrible is truly incompetent though, especially with a 3 month delay to make it "a good port." It's a crappy port... people are telling me even on the lowest settings you get frame drops to the teens when driving fast. I'm gonna check that out in a bit.

Maybe it's a NV thing cause I can't get below 23fps anywhere. With lots of traffic and stuff its usually at 25fps for a low. Normal doing things is 30fps most of the time.

Middle screen you showed looks good, its a shame once you go outside with those settings fps drops drastically.

Thanks for the info NarcissistZero.

The Steam and official forums are lit up with performance complaints from Radeon users as well, so I don't think that's it. You're on XP... perhaps there is a Vista problem. Or maybe it's very reliant on SLI and a high amount of VRAM.

Ok, so either the game is broken or there is a serious Vista/driver issue... this is with everything on low settings, as in it cannot get any lower, and I still dip down to crappy fps while driving...

You try the 185.20 beta?

Which drivers are you using?

Try the 185.20 since they have the ambient occlusion settings in them.

Also I just read that only Vista actually has AO support right now, meaning Vista is going to take a hit with Ambient Occlusion. Doesn't look like it's working in XP or W7 yet which may explain why Vista performance is lower. Using 185.20 you can disable AO in the drivers. Worth a shot.

Here's what I'm getting trying to find some slow fps screenshot areas. Worst I can find was in the tunnel type area. This is Vista 64 btw. Not great frame rate but the rest of the time its at 30. And probably not much above it but stupid limit prevents seeing exactly how high it goes.

Well I noticed the last time I loaded it up, before lowring the settings, that it was running at a steady 28-31fps... then it started dropping. It could be a memory leak or similar error.

I don't see 185.20 drivers on the nvidia.com beta page, so I am assuming they are leaked, and thus I don't really want to mess with them.

Yes they are leaked. Check my post above though about Ambient Occlusion in Vista.
