There was a nice boost with 10.8, not only with fps but also smoothness.
***Disclaimer...Not at all saying it's playable maxed with a 6870, just wondering if you got to try the 10.8 cats before you bailed.
I forget exactly which driver set I was running when I stopped using those cards. Was the 10.4's the first 'good' set, the one that was the best for awhile (like, there were a couple later versions that kinda sucked)? If so, that was the last set I ran. I stopped using those cards in June.

The fact of the matter is, I played the game MAXEDat 1920 X 1080 with my single 6870 and the fps could not have dropped below 30 cause that would have been noticeable. It was smooth as silk. I don't know why reading my 100% accurate post puts your panties in a bunch, but I suggest you stop reading them if it does, and unless you have access to the identical rig that I am using, I would advise you to stop contradicting me about something you know nothing about.
It gets my panties in a bunch because you're NOT 100% accurate. Rather, you are just plain full of nonsense
I don't have to play this game on your rig to know that either you are lying for some absurd reason, or you are mistaken, and didn't have all the settings maxed out.
Consider the evidence on this thread:
1) A single 470 w/30% OC maxed out - easily comparable to 6870 at Metro - IS UNPLAYABLE BY A LARGE MARGIN
2) A single 460 w/large OC maxed out - easily comparable to 6870 at Metro - IS UNPLAYABLE BY A LARGE MARGIN
3) Two 6970's in Crossfire maxed out - easily 2 times faster than one 6870 - Averages just over 43fps average, and dips into the teens in the benchmark. IOW, IS BARELY PLAYABLE, and certainly not going to be a 'perfectly smooth' experience.
4) Not one single person on this LONG thread has come to your defense and claimed that what you've stated is possible.
I can also tell you from experience that when I tried this game maxed out on an OC'd GTX480, which crushes a 6870 at Metro, it was also UNPLAYABLE.
Ergo, you are either lying, or you simply do not know wth you are talking about. Period.
If you have the steam version of the game, you have the benchmark app. So if you do, how about you put up or ... you know the rest Edited by brettjv - 2/2/11 at 1:21pm
