My temps can get pretty high too (for my setup) with 76C and 65C in SLI. I've got my case fans maxed out during gameplay.
I did use the Nvidia inspector SLI tweak and I'm very happy with the performance in this game. SLI is really smooth no stuttering that I can detect. I also shut off D3Doverrider and find messing around with the frame rendering settings helps make it more responsive.

On DX11? Everthing maxed out, except for 4x MSAA? Hard to believe to be honest..
Or perhaps i have missed something, and Nvidia runs about double performance than AMD at this moment.

I am running crossfire 7950 (1100/1400 atm) on 12.11 beta drivers + 12.11 cap 1, same CPU on exact same speed, same amount of RAM.
And i am getting about 65 fps on average at 1080p. That's almost half of the 120 fps you are claiming, don't think i ever saw my fps above 100 at all, not to talk about spikes to 170.

It runs great on Nvidia from what I've seen, with the latest beta for it (+38% thumb.gif). Did AMD release a driver update specifically for it yet? Your performance boost may be coming soon if not.

It's been out for a while in Europe. 29th I think it was. Though a lot of places had copies on the 28th.

Agreed. The guy either has a supercomputer or he is confused. I am betting on the latter.

I don't know what his 2500k or 680s are running at, but he's being completely accurate as far as I've seen. I also have 680's and am constantly sitting at my 118fps framerate-cap. Not sure why your system is having so many problems. You should do a clean install of the 310.64's if you haven't already (use Driver Fusion or the like to wipe out all Nvidia files before installing 310.64). That may help. Other than that I don't know. But I'm seeing similarly amazing performance as he is, except with 8x MSAA instead of 4x, so his statement is entirely possible. I have my 680s at only the stock 1215mhz.

Does anyone know what the sub resolution (enable, x and y) is for?
post #490 of 1920
i7 960 @ 4.1 , 8GB 1600Mhz Corsair Vengeance, GTX 570 TWIII, Everything is max out (except AA i think) it's below 30FPS in most demanding places..

The temps are 55-70 degrees on CPU though, gotta clean it that's for sure
