The shot looks ok, but that ground texture looks terrible! I wish they would have redone that texture for the PC.

Performance numbers here folks? I can't notice any visual improvement over NFS:U, but man - performance has gone throught the floor. Fraps is giving me 20-30 fps - at 640*480. Most settings are on (reflection set at low with low update rate, no aa) - as they were in NFS:U, which averaged 40-45fps on my system - at 1024*768. This is just brutal.

XP2500/GF4 4200 here. What framerates are you guys getting?

How fast are you guys getting?

XP-M 2400MHz, 1GB DDR400, 6800GT@Ultra

Not so great performance. It looks nice but I expected it to run much better. With 1024x768 with 4xAA 8xAF I think, and all details on/max, I get about 40-45fps or so.

The graphics look worse, and performance seems worse

Pisses me off, I was really looking forward to it

Drops below 30 a bunch at 1024x768 medium settings on a FX5900SE. Darn evil pixel shaders...

Well it only a demo, just about every demo cant have full size high quality textures, it will take huge spaces, half size and low quality textures will suit for the demos, if you want the full size and high quality, you have to buy the game.
