i think it's silly this game requires a 680 or 7970 for 60fps... those GPUs have up to 8 times the power of the 360 and PS3.. this game should be getting over 90fps on those GPUs easily.

Oh man... It doesn't require 680's or 7970's to get 60fps maxed out.... It only requires those in SLI when you use more than 2x msaa which is plenty btw. This game is just as well optimized as anything else. I can run ultra w/ 2x msaa on a 670 and stay around 60 fps. Everyone who is complaining just doesn't understand you can't run ultra with 8x msaa on one card.

There is no difference on my pc with MSAA on or off whether 2,4 or 8. Plus my pc should be able to run it with 8xmsaa. Fact is game is poorly optimized. Else it should be giving higher fps than it is. Also scaling isn't all that good.

I agree, the game is optimized actually really well compared to let's say assassin's creed 3.

8X MSAA is overrated anyway ... 2X or 4X max is plenty.

sli scaling has to do with the nvidia driver / sli profile. Not the game I don't know how you don't know that if you have QUAD 690's and a 680 for physx lol.

Why do you think the newest beta driver gives 38% extra performance? each driver gets tweaked for the big titles at the moment.

From what i'm reading Crysis 2 with the DX11 HD pack runs better than this... and that's CRYSIS 2 WITH THE DX11 HD PACK......

This game looks good and all but not crysis 2 good and shouldn't eat up more GPU horsepower than it. No way a GTX680/HD7970 can't get a smooth 60fps at 1080p on a console port.

You might want to try the game on it's dx 11 shortcut, because your obviously running it on dx9 if the MSAA don't have impact on your frame rate.

true that lol he isn't even playing in dx11. I know I messed up and I wasn't for about 2 hrs but then I turned up to 8xmsaa just to test and I knew something was wrong w/ no framerate drop.
