Downloading now. Should make a good benchmark.

I've tried it today. Can't say I'm impressed. Far Cry forests look much better and they don't eat up as much resources as this demo which is quite heavvy on the GPU

Heh, yeah but Far Cry is more like looking at a fake plant whereas this is more like looking at a real one (not as bright, colorful and artificial looking IMO). It was also pretty cool to see the helicopter fly by and see the trees sway in the wind caused by the helicopter.

Oh and btw Farcry doesn't show trees that are far away except as 2d sprites so it isn't really compareable.

From the Prairie Meadow one (the only one I've tried so far). Doesn't look quite as good in the screenshots but not too bad.

Nice screens

Looks really good but a little slow on my system. Must be a very high usage of PS 2.0 in this demo.

Okay, I'm done. The screenshots were from 3 of the 7 different environments.

Demo was set at high detail, 1280x1024, I think I had 4xAA/8xAF set in the nv cp and I'm getting around 33-35fps when it zooms in close to a bunch of the trees. Otherwise, it rarely drops below 40'ish fps on mine. What sort of framerates were you seeing?
