    Try turning off DoF, I think that kills performance, seems like a lot hasn't changed much since july. And try to rerun the benchmark.

    This is a very weird problem you are having, and it seems no driver version has fixed it. it's almost as if the driver is not using the physx card correctly, anything else change in the computer over the last few months?

    As a matter of fact I don't even consider it a problem, I think that's just the way it is. I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with my system. After all we had very nice results with Mafia 2 benchmark and PLA benchmark.
    If I had to guess an explanation, it would be the same you hinted months ago: the gtx 670 is so much faster than the 560 Ti, the 560 Ti may end up not being such a help after all, I don't know.
    About changes in the last few months, I'm pretty sure that when I started this thread my cpu was on its stock settings, right now I'm at 4.2 Ghz.
    I have a friend who has gtx 670 and a gtx 570, I think I heard him saying the performance in Batman Arkham City was kind of strange too. I'll ask him.
    Ether way, I'm just posting this data because other people might be interested as well. Excepting BAC, I have no intentions of playing any of those games. I requested people at Adhesive Games to provide a benchmarking tool for Hawken, so that I could run some tests here.
    If you know of any game benchmarks I could use to make the data more reliable, just let me know.
