No where can I see the patch notes say that anywhere...
here is specifically what the patch addresses:

"What are the patch notes?
GENERAL
Fixed save game issues on single core machines

Fixed game asking for non-existent drives

Fixed release control issues where some players were unable to unlock correctly

Fixed a Steam-specific issue related to VO not playing after switching languages**"

Anyway to fix this or just game's fault?
that is pretty much the way the game looks... not really a fix for it yet.
I wish their High Res texture pack was more more than just the environment...

i'm not interested in that so much.
the blood/gore do it for me

and seeing mage powers in mid stride when you pause the game to issue another command. at one point i hit pause and the whole screen was lit up with powers (i play as a Mage and keep Anders in my party).

velocd was right, i had spikes and not a steady rate.
but... that was before the nvidia inspector tweak

possible spoilers________




i'm in act 2 (i think?) and just entered Smuggler's Cut where a battle took place. i've highlighted the battle and you can clearly see both of my cards spiking at least to 91/92% usage

this is on High setting. i'm assuming on Very High this would lower, or so that's what i've seen others say on the nVidia forums. you would think it would be opposite that

just finished the game did all the quests for the most part missed a few that you had to seek out with the characters, ending was bit of a let down but it ended it nicely leaving it open for a third or an expansion at the very least.

as others are saying the story does pick up greatly but the beginning is a bit to drawn out.

and was it mentioned how many different endings there are? i plan to play through again.

i don't typically mess with settings unless i have problems.

edit: so, after all the testing and such, i'm pretty confident that this is now in BioWare's court. i think a final release driver from nVidia will help a little more, but i think the real problem is the game and optimization, or lack thereof, for nVidia cards.

not being able to play in Very High settings with everything maxed isn't a deal breaker for me. just a little disappointed in BioWare.
