What am I supposed to take out of that without minimum framerate? Haven't we had enough of that discussion in regards to the techreport articles? The first hint that something is up should be the 7950 performing a good bit worse than a GTX580. What else is going on that average framerate alone isn't showing.
You can google every bit of what I'm saying or search the forum. GTA4 tends to run like ass on AMD cards.

Its really not. There is a lot going on in that game and you can turn up the settings the hell of a lot higher than anything that you would see on the console.
Would you rather not have these options? Would you rather see a crap ton of pop ins like with Saints Row 3? Oh but that game ran well when maxed out despite not looking that much better than the console version. I guess that makes it a great port?
Comments like that remind me of the complaints that Crysis is "unoptimized" since people couldn't run it maxed out despite it being perfectly playable on almost anything if you turn down a couple of settings.Edited by BababooeyHTJ - 2/3/13 at 10:31am
