I was actually talking about the game. I hear it's a known bug with some UE3 based games.

I don't have the game yet, so I can't confirm it, but according to some people, it cuts loading times from 40sec to 5sec.
That's for people with Dual Core CPUs on Windows 7. Quad Core users don't have this issue, iirc.

Well ATI showed this game would have Eyefinity support. Currently it does not.

I'm not even going to brother playing until it gets it.

For those who have the game, what is the executable name? biogame.exe or masseffect2.exe?

The official 10.1 should be out any day. And the FOV isnt ATIs issue its Biowares. But the support claim came from ATI. Im sure it will just require a patch like DA did. Which is still annoying.

Back to MW2

I don't know if they are but with that 5970 in your sig you can run Mass Effect with 16xAA no problem. I am on a 4870x2 and with 8xAA I get 60 fps most of the time. 16xAA I get about 30 with dips in combat.
