Thumbnail broken?


resized to 1024x768 for easy viewing.

Yup, have alchemy installed, but I think it only works on X-fi's, wasn't sure about that when I installed it.

EDIT: I forgot v-sync. Obviously

As in you didn't have v-sync enabled? That would explain why your minimum is nearly 20fps higher than mine.

Did you have literally every in-game option maxed? Wait, maybe I don't have TB enabled... better check.

Why is my EAX grayed out? I never noticed it before.

LOL... that was dumb.

I set AF to 4x and AAx to 16x in the driver control panel. Considering my scores, I'm proud.

Re-running the test now.

That's how it shows up on mine as well. But, I'm using on board audio.

Yes, vol. lights, soft shadows, 4xAA, 16xAF, all effects at max.

Would the EAX make that difference? Is that why he stressed it had to be on?

I'll check again.

EDIT: Arg - I screwed up, I had ss on and shadows off.
My bad!

No, I made the mistake... in the driver control panel I had AA set to 16x and the AF set to 4x. Just a dumb mistake. My scores still aren't as high as yours, so maybe something else is set differently. Gonna' recheck now.

Oh, I also have IE7 open, with two tabs (nVnews and photobucket), as well as WMP11 minimized. DreamScene is paused, and the sidebar is running. Still, that should be enough to make my score that much less than yours.
