It's widely known that DX11 is broken in the demo and full version of the game. Looks worse than Crysis but still cripples the performance more than Crysis does.

Pictures show the settings I'm using and the drivers etc.





FORCEWARE 266.58
Moderately Overclocked GTS 450 SLi


System Specs:

I7 940 @ 3680mhz
12gb RAM (3x4gb) 1600 triple chan DDR3
3x 128GB Crucial c300 SSDs - Raid 0
2x GTS 450 SLi


Not the fastest setup, but running DA 2 just fine. Better than I expected after hearing all the horror stories. Nvidia dropped the ball in the profile settings for this game. Quick adjustment and the game runs like it's suppose to with nvidia cards.

I average above 65 FPS at High settings - DX11 with 2x AA


Video is recorded at half size in fraps because full size gives me FPS drops.

same performance with very high settings. getting over 100fps average on just high settings, 2aa. I wonder what is causing the problem at very high settings.

Anyway, high settings are fine for me with full AA/AF @ well over 60fps average.

Sweet OP, I am going to try this tonight and see if I can make it work with my sig rig. My first runs with this game were before the 1.01 patch and with older drivers for my 480's and I was getting 15fps MAX on dx11 settings maxed out at 1680x1050. After installing 1.01 patch and newest beta drivers for GPU's I got around 35fps in game and much better in cut scenes. I am going to give your tweak a try and keep my fingers crossed. Theres no way this game is more demanding than Metro2033.

I posted while back in the ATI forum that my 2 X 6950 gets only 40 - 45% usage (very high settings, 4XAA, 16XAF). But I am getting a solid 60 FPS with v-sync on. Very smooth gameplay - so no complains. But wondered why the low usage. I just attributed it to my low resolution monitor.
