Dude if you have Halo you should the improvement is truly HUGE. All who were pissed they couldnt max out a 2 year old game on a recent card will be happy.

Anyone esle getting into servers within seconds like 2-5? I have never had any MP game load so fast.

Yup. The cache system Bungie wrote for Halo does great things when it's scaled up from a PIII 700 to a Barton 2500+.

Yeah, it's totally killer now. Pick a server and *boom* I'm in-game in no time.

Just did some testing. The Halo CE timedemo doesn't give a good performance baseline; it's just the title screen moving faster. There's no point in posting timedemo scores for PC and CE because they aren't the same thing.

I'll try taking some FPS measurement comparisons and get back to you.
