Good news for AMD users

Quote:
BozzCollin and JunkyMonkey: Just today heard news that AMD had solved some CF issues and they claim a 60-75% perf boost when used with the CrossFire profile compared to single GPU. So all is not lost.
Spoke with ManuelG about the SLI support and the game won't be SLI-ready when it gets released. Nvidia will release a new driver with an SLI profile for it afterwards

Is this release developed from the former PC version that was showcased a few years ago?

No. Any early material evolved into what ended up shipping on the 360. This PC release will be derived from what was released on the 360.
expected

They could do some awesome with this game. As it was originally gonna' be a PC game, pushing graphical bounderies and promoting DX10 way back in the day, I could see them breaking some berriers with this game- properly using multi-core and multi-threaded CPUs, taking advantage of advanced APIs such as DX10.1 or preferrably DX11, taking advantage of the faster subsystems of the PC such as DDR3 RAM, SSD/SATA II and III for streaming in data of new areas, the larger framebuffers on today's video cards... a lot of hardware for them to take advantage of here.

Honestly, I expect them to fully exploit the capabilities of today's hardware. After abandoning the PC platform as they did with this game, they have a crap ton to live up to in order to impress me. If this turns out to be a game worthy of today's top-end gaming rigs then I'll definitely consider it. Otherwise, I'll probably pass or pick it up on a super cheap steam sale.

big screens look pretty good to me, it's no bf3 but it's not bad for a 2 year old console port.

Steam says that it'll unlock in 1 day and 3 hours from now but it's still not possible to pre-order. It doesn't even have a price tag here
Nor in the US. 18 hours until it's unlocked, then we can see the $59USD price tag.
