Yeah well I ain't getting no 85fps lol.

In the snow level I am getting 30fps during action. Turning down all settings to low barely helps, that's just what it wants to run at, which makes it the most demanding game on my system, much more than Crysis in DX9.

Tried DX9 for this, looks like ass, only got me 10fps if that.

The FOV works really well That white pixel in the right hand corner still bugs the crap out of me

Default FOV is 85


And here it is at 100...the way I like it.

I was watching a movie on this and it seemed "Modernish", this is WWII isn't it?

Still deciding if I'm going to get it or not.

So you think it is optimized? Let me demonstrate you how DICE f*cked up with the port.

The ForceWare 196.75 have an SLI profile for BC2 and the two cores of my GTX295 are working at 50%. CPU limited is the first thing that comes in mind, right? So let's see what is really going on here.

In this scene i was averaging at 40fps



So i decided to stay still and see the CPU usage (GPU usage was the same as always, 50% in each core). Behold:



So why the F*CK the game engine does not take advantage of my cores if it is indeed optimized? Yeah, the I7 architecture can run the game with no issues (due to its raw power) but that doesn't mean that Frostbite is ported well in PC. DICE, you are busted!

So it's well balanced, thats all your screenshot shows with 50% on each core. Not sure how this would suggest a bad port. If you had 99% on one and 20% on each other, that would suggest a shoddy programming job. I think your screenshot confirms it's using multi core quite wisely.

Remember, one core/thread's gonna be doing much of the audio.
