the FC2 hotfix is screwed up; raw frame rates DO increase but 4870 still lurches from frame to frame in some really bad situations; i would hate to play with a 4870-1GB - even though it *should* be playable - UNLIKE either 4870x2 [CF-X3] or 280GTX which are smooth.Originally posted by: BFG10K
The second set of images definitely have rocks missing in one of them and that's potentially an issue. BUT he's also renamed the executable so it's a totally different ball-game now.
Both IHVs rely on application stings these days and both drivers can break if executables are renamed so he really hasn't proved anything.
no renamed anything; i just used Rollo's save and had to re-save as an in-game cell phone conversation started too quickly for me to take a series of shots
i *hope* this Hotfix driver is not the basis for Cat 8-11 and FC2. it is getting immediately UNinstalled
--full report to follow; i am working on the graphs and posting the IQ comparisons, right now - a dozen shots will prove it for all of you
