Thanks for the update. I guess I'll download the fixed one (this one is 609M).

Oh, I was hoping it would work better with the 75.90s. It seems about the same. Settings are still kind of flaky, meaning it sometimes doesn't seem to take, sometimes it does. Oh well...

I'm using the 71.24 & they are pretty fine .
also you should try the demo on your X800 .. you may get even better performance (as long as you dont hit the 1600x1200 res)

Whoa ! the new demo makes a BIG difference for my rig ! sm3.0 HDR settings run alot better now on my GT. Heh, sm3.0 is a selling point now imo

I wouldn't bother plaing it on an Ati even if i had an X800XT. The HDR just looks too damn pretty to me and it's now actually smooth.

The half automatic allignment of the camera feels a bit better too now. It would get a bit too close to Sam in narrow spaces, but now you can somehow keep a good eye on what's happening around.

The official demo is certainly worth the download imo. Thumbs up for Ubi Montreal

* edit : Gamespot has screenshots which prove sm1.1 - sm3.0HDR difference ; I don't think anyone can deny the added HDR beauty.

shader model difference screenshots

I gave it a shot and when using identical settings on both, the framerate is a tad higher on my nvidia based system (faster cpu, card, etc. so it's to be expected -- although it wasn't nearly as much as it should be). Then, tweaking the extra settings provided on the nvidia side I can raise the framerate on that system even a little more. After now playing it on both systems, I'd rather have the SM3/HDR/Shadow stuff all enabled anyway although it makes performance very marginal at times (thankfully it's a slow paced game). I really like the HDR touch in this one and after playing most of the demo with it on, turning it off now looks somewhat dull/muted. So, I'd probably still play it on the nvidia side even if the X800 Pro had been a little faster. I do think the X800 Pro made a good showing though. Considering it's speed and system, it was a lot closer in performance than it should have been.
