Really?

Can you point me to the option to adjust tess levels or turn it off directly through the nvcp?

does the amdcp have tesselation control now? and i mean inside of the CP, not through an add on or app.

also, we can discuss this, no need to be crass. havent seen AMDCP in months.

nevermind, i see it! that is actually awesome. do want.

however my comment was more based on the fact that the tesselation levels are driver controlled, whether you can move sliders or not.

( any lack of settings can happen from both manufacturers. )

i have my gts450, not too powerful, i have no sliders to level out my performance based on my own performance/quality preferences. do i blame nvidia? i do now that i saw AMD's support for changing tesselation settings.

Afaik Nvidia doesn't control the level of tess via drivers, the application does.

i think if this were the case you would be able to change it in the application. possible? havent seen it other than tessmark and heaven so i really dont see any REAL information supporting that.

all i see is nvidias "The way its meant to be played", aka "buy a $500 card"

So your feeling is because Metro 2033 doesn't have the ability to directly change tess levels within the software itself Nvidia is actually controlling it through their drivers?

I'm coming up short of titles that actually use tess since DX11 is still pretty new, Shogun 2 also doesn't allow you to change the levels of tess is one of the other others besides Crysis 2 now that I can think of (3dmark11).


I'm pretty sure it makes more sense for the game dev to put the parameters of tess directly into the software. Things such as where, how much tess, how far you can see it would all be programed directly into the software, I can't grasp any logical way for drivers to perform that task. All AMD is doing is modifying those settings by injecting their own "amount of" instead of using the software baseline.

havent seena single GAME with the ability to control tesselation levels. point me to one and my opinion would change. however this doesnt hinder my preference in nvidia graphics cards.

I think you're confused as to what a driver does.

Just because a game doesn't have AA or AF settings doesn't mean AA and AF are driver controlled in the game does it? No, it doesn't.

What it means is the software devs didn't include the ability to change that setting, you're reading into something that has no context.

Get a 6950 1GB for the same price as a 560ti in most cases.

some settings in ccc are set to application others are set to amd optimized, I played around with them but I didn't see any improvement in my crappy results (amd drivers)

edit: btw, go for the 560 ti
