Default Re: Oblivion PC Initial Gameplay / Performance Impressions

i fired up the pc one last night, it coudlnt detect my gfx hardware which was odd, so it set me to medium :0

anyway, i chose 1360x768 rex, and put all sliders to max, with HDR.

performance is very up and down, ranging from 60 to <30, which is pretty annoying, could do with a frame cap really!

certainly looks niec,but ive also had the game crash twice! (this is using the new drivers) the gfx card wasnt overclocked so i put the cpu down a bit after the first crah and it crashed again after an hour or so! ah well, my 360 copy has arrived and i will compare perfofmance with that tonight.

EDIT: anyone know which options with the pc one result in the most performance increases? (apart from turning off hdr)

Mr Fujisawa - after you've had a gander at the 360 version, any chance of a few direct comparison screenshots...?

here ya go:

Installed CoolBits - Changed (in Additional Direct3D Settings)

Max frames to render ahead to "0" .. it was set to "3".

All stuttering and "mouse lag" is gone. The game runs like a dream, and is amazing to play.

I'm still at a loss for words on people on this forum. How is it that you guys are getting low frame rates when mine is running SILKY smooth? My game has not slowed down ONE BIT. I have NEVER had mouse lag(and I mean never, not even in the most extreme situation). Believe me, if it was I'd be complaining.

1600x1200
Max settings
HDR on
no AA
8 AF(i haven't tried 16af, but really its not worth my time trying. The difference is so minimal)

What am I missing here? Why isn't anyone getting good performance with rigs twice as expensive as mine. What drivers are everyone using? I NEVER update to the most recent drivers. I usually wait til a game is broken or runs slow before I download the latest driver. If it ain't broke don't fix it right? I'm not sure of the version drivers I'm using, but they came on the CD with my 7900GTX. Maybe you people with 7900's should give those drivers a try and post your results.

Tyger, did you re-install Windows after installing your 7900GTX?
