The only thing disabled is V-sync. My Nview Forceware setting is set to Quality and the GT @ 400/1100 on 67.66.

A framerate of 20 to 32 in places with lighting and HDR fx is still NOT what I call a very good framerate. It's playable, but I really hope the final code will run HDR fx at least 10 frames per second better.
I downloaded latest Fraps and tested, the score much the same as you.

At 1024x768x32 16xAF, all settings maxed included HDR set ON and Forceware's quality setting, I get 17 to 30fps in places with HDR and then I turned off HDR in the option and back to the game, to my surprise I get 17 to 30fps in same places, it much the same in previous Splinter Cell titles Here is no performance loss when turn on HDR, with HDR on, the game run much smooth as well as HDR turn off too, I never get as low as 10fps, it never slowdown or chopping like some tests in 3DMark 2005.

If it still not make sense to you so I have 2 screenshots with HDR ON and OFF, HDR didnt caused massive performance hit, it hardly no differences in fps, HDR give just about no performance loss. On the famous spot screenshot released in many forums:

With no HDR...



With HDR on...



You notice almost no difference in fps when turn on HDR.

That's about an 18% difference in Frames from HDr/noHDR. Was that with all options for SM3 enabled? Parallax Mapping, tone mapping, softshadows.

Yes all options enabled, guess the fps lowered because of 16xAF, will check with 8xAF.

Edit: With 8xAF, No HDR get 20fps and with HDR get 17fps, hardly any difference.

it's short for optimizations, which are found in the nvidia control panel, you know the 3 filtering OPT that you can enable

Ahh I see... these default 3 settings are:

Trilinear optimization = ON
Anisotropic mip filter optimization = OFF
Anisotropic sample optimization = ON

I will turn on Anisotropic mip filter optimization and see what the fps are.

Hmmm very interesting fps numbers, here is no different with 8xAF but when turn on 16xAF, with no HDR I get 20fps - 4fps increase, with HDR I get 17fps - 4fps increase.

At the very beginning of the game my frame rate just about halves if i enable HDR, 23===>16 fps, also the best drivers i found are the 71.81's, you can check out my benchmarks here: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...&page=15&pp=15

ps, before you change drivers load up a couple of places in the game with Fraps running and note the FPS and then do the same when you change drivers and you should see a jump in FPS.

Heh i guess we're talking on different levels here becuz in this demo i find a 3 to 5 fps difference quite alot. The difference between 24 and 28 fps in this demo is quite noticable to me.

BTW, I should indeed check my optimizations too. Do they increase performance or decrease it ?
