The game barely dips below 30 fps now at those settings. I'm gonna check out the extra DVD disk now. Here are a few screens from the official game.
wow cool ! how is your performance w/o HDR & AA instead ? .. i assume with the final release the game will be finally smooth @1600x1200 on SLI setups .

Yep, Got mine today at Gamestop also. The manager at Gamestop said that he got an email about Splinter Cell PC version wouldn't be comin out until the 29th, instead of the 28th like the other versions. The email said that it was a distribution problem on the publishers side. Though, the official gold annoucement said March 31st was when the game was going to be on the shelves. So I'm happy that they got it out 2 day earlier.

I like HDR so I play it w/HDR and no AA. But I'm sure w/o HDR with AA would be the same. The performance is noticeably better in the final game. SLI'd systems would definately be playable at 1600x1200.

Also, it seems the HDR has been changed a bit. It's not quite as bright as in the demo, but that's not a bad thing at all. It's used more appropriately you could say. Still looks amazing though.

The first thing I did was patch the game. It comes with the second extra DVD. Some cool videos are there. You get to see the making of SC3 and the developers. Kinda cool.

Here are a few screens w/o HDR with 4xAA/8xAF at 1280x1024. All other options are enabled though. (VDM/HQSS)

Well... Gamestop will be receiving my wrath soon. I FINALLY got the game today... and oh... whats this? XBOX VERSION. So I went to my local Gamestop and tried to get them to exchange it but they refused... so now I am about to email them and demand they send me off the PC version with overnight shipping tomorrow and they will not be getting their Xbox version back because their little screw up has cost me too much time.

Well I just sent them off a pretty lengthy email pretty much demanding they send me the PC version tomorrow with overnight shipping so I SHOULD receive it Friday (3 days later than I SHOULD have received it). This is ridiculous... even assuming that I sent it off tomorrow with overnight shipping... they would get it Friday and even if they actually worked quickly enough to send it off Friday (doubtful since Gamestop can't do anything right apparently) with overnight shipping... I would still get it Monday... almost a week after I was originally supposed to receive the game.

So I think they OWE me the Xbox version for free.

Nightvision doesn't seem to give a framerate hit much. Runs fine with it on or off.
