macatak the game plays smooth. it is rough in the parts it's suppose to be. what I'm looking forward to is the 64bit bins. I hope they will create the good boost in the game. farcry is very cpu limited.

My Timedemo scores with Far Cry never changed when i replaced my xp3200+ with a 64 3500+, same thing with happened with Chronicles of Riddick,but all my scores in other games like HL2, Doom3, Painkiller and Call of Duty all went up.You could try running the Far Cry demos with your CPU overclocked and see if your score improves, that should give you and idea as to whether or not you are CPU limited in Far Cry.

Just tried the 70.78 drivers @400/1.1 and lost about 3-4 fps. I thought these were supposedly faster?

71.80's are good, not the 70.80's, with the Ubisoft Research Demo:

I'm junking this set, they fudge up WoW. The FPS is nowhere near as good as the 67.66 set was and they have GUI issues.

both of those cpus are clocked at 2.2Ghz and only have 512Kb L2 you not going to see a difference in farcry. I'm hoping that the 64bit bin will help with performance. the 32bit bins were rushed.
